Our Promise: To serve with excellence and dedication; to provide peace of mind for those who depend on us; and to enrich the lives and health of our members and the communities we serve.
To fulfill Our Promise and our role as a leading corporate citizen, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey provides foundation grants, corporate philanthropy programs and employee giving and volunteer programs to benefit residents of New Jersey – where the company and its offices have been located for more than 80 years.
To facilitate its charitable giving, in 2004, Horizon BCBSNJ established The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey to promote health, well-being and quality of life in New Jersey’s communities. Since its inception, the Foundation has made more than 965 grants to New Jersey non-profit organizations, totaling more than $34 million. The majority of these grants have addressed key health issues affecting New Jersey residents, such as efforts to prevent and educate about health conditions like asthma, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and obesity.
In addition to funding projects that are submitted for consideration through the Foundation’s online grant application system, the Foundation develops its own statewide, signature initiatives. These include Healthy U, a childhood obesity prevention program serving more than 40,000 children through a collaboration with the Foundation and the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance. The Foundation has awarded $3.45 million in grants for Healthy U since its inception in January, 2008.
Another Foundation signature program is the Health Center Initiative. Since this program's inception in 2007, the Foundation has awarded $7 million in grants to 25 Federally Qualified Health Centers, free/volunteer clinics and independent clinics around the state to increase access to care for the state’s uninsured and underserved individuals. This seven-year initiative will end in 2014.
In addition, the Foundation has contributed more than $1.4 million to match Horizon BCBSNJ employees’ contributions to eligible New Jersey non-profit organizations and higher education institutions. Through the Horizon Cares Matching Gifts Program, the Foundation matches employees’ donations to such organizations on a dollar-for-dollar basis. The Program also offers special matching gifts programs in response to disasters, such as Hurricane Sandy and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
Horizon BCBSNJ also offers the Horizon Cares employee volunteer program. Through a relationship with VolunteerMatch, the largest online volunteer network in the country, employees can search for volunteer opportunities and track their hours. Each time an employee logs 25 volunteer hours, the eligible organization receives a $500 gift from the Foundation in recognition of the employee’s volunteer service.
Horizon Cares also sponsors an annual Day of Caring for employees. Hundreds of employees and their families and friends have participated in Day of Caring projects to date, which have included painting, landscaping and cleaning at five YMCAs where the company has offices located; building a new playground for underserved children in Northgate Park in Camden; and helping to “Restore the Shore” at Island Beach State Park following Hurricane Sandy.
Some of the other annual events that Horizon BCBSNJ participates in include:
Continuing Horizon BCBSNJ dedication in addressing the obesity epidemic in New Jersey, we have teamed up with three of New Jersey’s minor league baseball teams to bring smarter eating choices to America’s favorite pastime. Horizon BCBSNJ opened Horizon Healthy Plate concession stands at the home ballparks of the Camden Riversharks, Lakewood BlueClaws and Trenton Thunder. Fans at every game are now able to find nutritious alternatives to the traditional ballpark fare.
Horizon BCBSNJ presented the teams with a series of menu options that are heart-healthy and nutritious (low in calories and sodium) without sacrificing taste. The ball clubs, in turn, suggested specific menu items that could be the healthy equivalent of typical ballpark fare. Each item is affordably priced and includes caloric and other nutritional information.
The Horizon Healthy Plate concession stand has been endorsed by the New Jersey Department of Health and its Shaping NJ program, a public/private partnership for nutrition, physical activity and obesity prevention. During the 2013 baseball season, the total numbers of items sold at all three stands was 13,782 for an average of 63 items per game.
These are just some of the ways Horizon BCBSNJ fulfills Our Promise and gives back to the state we call home, New Jersey.
