The Anthem Foundation funds specific public health–related initiatives that positively affect conditions identified through our signature Healthy Generations program.

Healthy Generations Program

Central to the efforts of the Anthem Foundation is the Healthy Generations program, a multigenerational initiative to improve public health.

The Anthem Foundation—one of the country's largest corporate foundations—is a private, nonprofit philanthropic organization wholly funded by Anthem, Inc. We believe that targeting preventable health concerns by making strategic charitable choices will help us create a healthier generation of Americans.

We’re committed to funding initiatives that positively affect the conditions addressed in our Healthy Generations program. Its areas of focus are based on the State Health Index, which incorporates public health data from the states Anthem’s affiliates serve. By providing a snapshot of the major health issues in each state, the index helps us concentrate our energies.

Today, we’re emphasizing efforts in these five areas: cardiac mortality; cancer prevention and smoking cessation; maternal and newborn health; diabetes prevention and management; and childhood and elderly obesity. We're also supporting behavioral health efforts and programs that benefit people with disabilities.

Community Relations & Sponsorships

We support nonprofit fundraising and sponsor initiatives that reflect the objectives of our signature Healthy Generations program. Rather than try to cover many broad health-related needs in the community, Anthem funds targeted grants that align with the initiative.
