Each year, Blue Cross employees conduct creative fund-raising campaigns to support the United Way, which funds many community agencies throughout Louisiana. The company matches employee donations dollar-for-dollar.
While much emphasis is given to Capital Area United Way because it services the area where our headquarters are located, all employees can elect to support their local United Way through our annual campaign. For a list of United Ways within the state of Louisiana, visit the Louisiana Association of United Ways’ website.
United Way envisions a world where all individuals and families achieve their human potential through education, income stability and healthy lives. To advance the common good and mobilize the caring power of communities around the world, United Way will:
- Ignite a worldwide social movement, and thereby mobilize millions to action — to give, advocate and volunteer to improve the conditions in which they live.
- Galvanize and connect all sectors of society — individuals, businesses, non-profit organizations and governments — to create long-term social change that produces healthy, well-educated and financially-stable individuals and families.
- Raise, invest and leverage billions of dollars annually in philanthropic contributions to create and support innovative programs and approaches to generate sustained impact in local communities.
- Hold ourselves accountable to this cause through our steadfast commitment to continually measure — in real terms — improvements in education, income and health.
