Volunteer Efforts

Health Care Service Corporation's community involvement is rooted in one of our core values: corporate citizenship. We are committed to the well-being of the communities in which we do business through focused health and wellness efforts. The success of our robust employee volunteer program depends on the many employees who offer their time and talents to support an array of worthwhile causes. Our employee volunteer program is stronger than ever, with more than 4,725 employees volunteering 110,413 hours in 2016. We are inspired every day by our employees’ generosity and dedication to volunteering in our communities.

Matching Dollars for Community Partners

At the heart of our employee volunteer efforts is our Matching Dollars program. For every volunteer hour that an HCSC employee spends with a community partner, HCSC contributes $20 per hour to the designated organization, up to a total annual contribution of $2,000. In 2016, we gave more than $367,065 to 331 community partner organizations. These relationships are a vital element in achieving our purpose: to do everything in our power to stand with our members in sickness and in health. As such, HCSC supports a diverse representation of community organizations.

If your nonprofit organization is interested in becoming a Community Partner, please review our criteria and application form .
