The Humana Foundation is evolving, rethinking its giving process to hone in on health-focused community investments. The new giving strategy will address the root causes of health issues, creating improved and sustained positive health outcomes, and will focus on eight Bold Goal communities.
And, this new strategy will infuse $14 million into communities Humana serves in 2018 approximately 20 percent more than the Foundation gave in 2017.
Through new Strategic Community Investment work, the Humana Foundation will invest $6.5 million in nonprofit organizations in eight Bold Goal communities: Louisville, San Antonio, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Knoxville, Tampa Bay, Jacksonville and Broward County.
Nonprofits in Louisville will also be able to participate in a new Headquarters Hometown Community Relations program. This initiative will infuse an additional $2 million into Louisville-area organizations, including nearly $1 million earmarked for established Foundation partners such as Metro United Way and Fund for the Arts.
Finally, the Foundation will give an additional $5.5 million in 2018 through popular and long-standing programs such as Humana Foundation scholarships and disaster-relief support. The Foundation will also increase its matching gifts program for associates.
