Highmark Corporate GivingThe decades-long legacy of Highmark includes direct financial support to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. Today, our corporate giving benefits hundreds of organizations across our service area.
The Highmark Bright Blue Futures charitable giving and community involvement program's goal is to ensure healthier, brighter, stronger futures for all. Our focus is improving equitable access to care, quality of life and economic resilience in the communities we serve.
We aspire to improve outcomes in two critical areas: Community Health and Community Economic Resilience.
Reducing health inequities and disparities among our targeted populations through novel solutions and strong partnerships go a long way toward reversing societal trends and lifting up those in need.
Our strategy is supported by five pillars that each play an important role in promoting the wellbeing of all:
- Access to Care
- Highmark Bright Blue Futures strives to ensure that everyone in our communities, regardless of their location, income, or other factors, has equitable access to preventative care, disease-specific support, and health literacy programs.
- Economic Stability for Individuals and Families
- We work to reduce the hardships that keep people from achieving financial security, such as food insecurity, housing instability, and unemployment.
- Social and Community Context
- Our programs related to physical activity and social connections encourage individuals to improve their health and quality of life through regular physical activity, and to seek out relationships that nurture their emotional, psychological and physical wellness, and growth.
- Education Access
- Through training and educational opportunities in healthcare and medical fields, as well as providing scholarships to higher education programs, Highmark Bright Blue Futures is dedicated to helping students gain the skills and knowledge they need to pursue and achieve their career goals.
- Neighborhood and Built Environment
- The built environment plays a crucial role in the health and safety of communities.
- Beyond just providing physical spaces, the built environment can be used to create programs and resources that can help to address issues that have a direct impact on the physical, mental, and emotional health of community members.
Community & Economic Resilience
Even during periods of upheaval and change, we were successful in improving economic wellbeing and quality of life in communities of all sizes.
In our efforts to support their communities and economic resilience, we:
- invested resources in moving diversity, equity and inclusion forward in a transformative way.
- provided a network of direct services to those in need.
- helped students and jobseekers prepare for success.
- improved the standards of living and fostering wellbeing.
- brought joy to and built bridges between cultures.

Partners For Sacred Places Inc
Supporting Historic Sacred Places
A program of Partners for Sacred Places in collaboration with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the National Fund for Sacred Places provides financial and technical support for community-serving historic houses of worship across America.
What We Offer
The National Fund for Sacred Places provides matching grants of $50,000 to $250,000 to congregations undertaking significant capital projects at historic houses of worship, along with wraparound services including training, technical assistance, and planning support.
What We’re Looking For
The National Fund for Sacred Places assesses applicant eligibility according to the core criteria shown below, while also striving to build a diverse participant pool that reflects a broad range of geographic, cultural, and religious identities.
Historic, Cultural, or Architectural Significance
We are looking for buildings that have historic, cultural, or architectural significance—and sites that have important and relevant stories to tell. Many of our participants are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the state register, or the local register. Your building does not have to be on one of these lists, but eligibility for one or more of these lists is a good benchmark for National Fund eligibility.
As part of the National Trust’s commitment to telling the full American story, we particularly encourage congregations to apply that illuminate a unique or overlooked aspect of American history and that expand our understanding of our shared national heritage. We encourage submissions related to historic sacred places of importance to historically and contemporaneously underrepresented communities including, but not limited to, women, immigrants, Asian Americans, Black Americans, Latinx Americans, Native Americans, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, and LGBTQIA communities.
Successful applicants are able to demonstrate their place in history by answering questions such as:
- Does the building tell a story relevant to our history—either cultural or religious?
- Does the history highlight previously underrecognized communities, stories, or locations?
- How has the building served the community over time? Does the building have a great physical presence in its community due to its location or programming?
- Is the building the work of a notable architect? If so, is it a high-quality example of their body of work?
- Is the building an exceptional example of its architectural style or building technology?
- Does the building embody the congregation’s resilience over time?
We are looking for congregations that are engaged in their communities and that are serving others. Engaged congregations operate and host programming that serves vulnerable, at-risk, and diverse populations; share space with non-affiliated groups and organizations (often at subsidized rates); work with other congregations, faith-based organizations, nonprofit organizations, and/or municipalities; and have a widespread reputation for being a welcoming center of community life.
Project Scope and Need
We fund historic preservation projects addressing urgent repair needs and/or life safety. We also fund projects that increase congregations’ ability to open their buildings to new populations or to serve greater numbers of people. All projects must adhere to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation, which is a universally accepted framework for doing work to older and historic properties.
We prioritize congregations/projects where there is a demonstrated need (meaning that the congregation cannot raise the funds alone) or where it is clear that our grant will have a catalytic effect (meaning that our grant is likely to lead to additional monies being contributed to the project).
Once-in-a-generation capital projects require a great deal of planning. We are looking for applicants that understand their buildings’ needs and that are ready to undertake a capital campaign. National Fund congregations typically have a history of successful capital campaigns, which demonstrate an ability to raise significant funds and complete a project.
Successful congregations come to us with a realistic fundraising goal, which has been generated with the help of qualified preservation professionals and is not too far beyond the congregation’s fundraising capacity.
The National Fund prioritizes healthy, stable congregations so that our investment is truly impactful and lasting. We look for the following, although this is not an exhaustive list of characteristics that indicate healthy congregations: tenured, well-respected clergy; capable lay leadership; stable or growing membership; financial strength and stability; support of the judicatory or governing body, if applicable; and a history of weathering any congregational conflict or trauma with resilience.
NOTE: Organizations planning to request $500,000 and above must have a pre-meeting prior to submitting an application.
The Longwood Foundation was founded in 1937 by Pierre S. du Pont, initially to support the operation of Longwood Gardens and the funding of various community projects.
Mr. du Pont’s personal philanthropy long preceded the formation of the Foundation.
We welcome applications from organizations seeking to improve the quality of life and future of the state of Delaware and/or the Kennett Square area (within a four-mile radius of Longwood Gardens). Our vision is that nonprofits are better able to serve their communities, thereby improving quality of life.
We meet our vision when nonprofits in our region meet their respective missions. Therefore, our grantmaking is geared towards helping a nonprofit get closer to their mission and goals. Our dollars should drive impact. We are looking for catalytic proposals – those that help a nonprofit grow, strengthen, or improve their efforts and impact.
In general, we choose to practice “responsive” philanthropy, which means that we assume we don’t know the best way to improve our region and therefore we welcome nonprofits to submit requests most important to them and the communities they serve. From these distinct views of the future, we choose the most compelling in which to invest.
We invest primarily in the education, health care, environmental, housing, arts, social services, and civic sectors. We are looking to make grants that will accelerate an organization towards its own success and in the process help solve a community challenge in our geographic boundaries.
- Libraries, animal shelters, and economic development
- State Parks, land, and water
- Social Services
- Elderly, young children, and senior community centers
- Opera, fine arts, ballet, symphony, theatre, and museums
- K-12 and College

Chichester DuPont Foundation
Chichester DuPont Foundation
The Clark Fund devotes particular emphasis to programs concerned with the environment, education, health care and social services and to which the Foundation’s giving will play a pivotal role.
The Lydia Fund, formed on the death of Lydia C. duPont in 1958, was created for the benefit of The Children’s Beach House, Lewes, Delaware and focuses on the needs, medical care, treatment and education of underprivileged children throughout the State of Delaware.
Both funds offer the Trustees the opportunity and challenge to provide positive, sustained change to our world.
Organizations that develop an association and program understanding, with at least one trustee, experience the greatest likelihood of funding success. Preference is given to proposals for new initiatives, special projects, the expansion of current programs and capital improvement. The trustees devote particular emphasis to programs concerned with the environment, education, health care and those to which the Foundation’s giving will play a pivotal role.
Grants are usually awarded for one year only. Projects in areas the Foundation has a special interest may be considered for multi-year funding. Organizations may reapply from one year to the next.
Only one grant application may be submitted in any calendar year. Organizations receiving grants are required to complete an evaluation report within twelve months after receipt of the funds.
