Getting Involved in the Communities We Serve—It's All Part of the Blue KC Commitment

Micaela Stephenson, Manager of Community Relations Charitable Giving

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City (Blue KC) has been doing business for more than 75 years, but what we do goes beyond providing some of the best health insurance in our hometown. We partner with local people and organizations to create powerful initiatives to help our community become a more vibrant place to live, work, play and raise a family. For those reasons, we are proud to support a variety of organizations. It's about helping our members and Kansas City build a healthier future.

Blue KC Employees Give Back

Blue KC employees volunteer thousands of hours and give of their time and talents to help organizations all across the Kansas City area. We recently launched several initiatives and programs, like Blue KC Cares, to increase our community outreach and drive volunteer activities. Blue KC Cares is an online program that allows employees to search and sign up for a wide range of volunteer opportunities that match their interests. Employees can build their own volunteer page and track their hours. Our employees feel fortunate to be your neighbor and look forward to working with you to build a healthier and more vibrant future for Kansas City.

If you are interested in having employees volunteer at your upcoming event, email Outreach Coordinator, Laura Read.

The Caring Program for Children

The Caring Program for Children is Blue KC’s internal non-profit organization that is funded completely by employees. The mission of the fund is to enhance the quality of life for children in our community by providing durable medical equipment and related items that otherwise could not be afforded by the child’s family and are not covered by state or federal programs or by private insurance.
