Our Philosophy

Building Healthier Communities

At Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana (BCBSMT) promoting health and wellness is one of our core business goals, and it drives our community involvement. We're dedicated to helping Montana be a healthier place to live, work, and play. Here's how:

  • Understanding What Communities Need: It takes more than a one-time grant or service project to make a lasting difference in the community. So, we seek out, support, and partner with organizations that already understand how to best meet the needs of their community and we do what we can to help their programs succeed.
  • Being There: The best way to help a community is to be an active part of it. BCBSMT has a presence at diverse events throughout the state, sponsoring the Health and Wellness booths, volunteering in events throughout the year and coordinating healthy activities like the annual Governor's Cup running event.

Healthy Kids, Healthy Families®

  • Nutrition

  • Substance Abuse Prevention
  • Suicide prevention

Healthy Kids, Healthy Families Grants

If your organization shares our goal to improve the health and wellness of children through nutrition education, physical activity, disease prevention and management, or substance abuse prevention, we invite you to apply online.

Funding Ranges

For this grant program, we are deferring to the expertise of the applicants to educate us on the funding needed to run a successful program. We didn't want ranges to take away from the flexibility of the program since applications will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, focused on outcomes and impact. The intention is that the request amount should reflect the robustness and effectiveness of the proposed program and be put within the context of the specific needs and challenges of the communities involved. Healthy Kids, Healthy Families looks to create strong collaborations and impact-based investments with our community partners and will focus on programs that facilitate that opportunity.
