The Cigna Foundation, the charitable arm of the Cigna Corporation and its subsidiaries, supports organizations that share its commitment to enhancing the health of individuals and families, and the well-being of their communities, with a special focus on those communities where Cigna employees live and work.
The foundation focuses its funding in four areas:
- Promoting wellness by building awareness, helping people manage their health challenges, and making health services available and affordable for all;
- Expanding opportunities by reaching across barriers to tap the talents of every person;
- Developing leaders by supporting the type of community service that gives talented individuals the experience to become future leaders; and
- Embracing communities by connecting neighbors to create networks to address complex social and environmental challenges.
There is no maximum or minimum grant. However, a typical first-time grant is $5,000.
Applications are considered throughout the year (though programs applying for a grant after October 15 cannot expect to receive funding until the next calendar year).
