Learn how we support the community health and programs.
The decades-long legacy of Highmark includes direct financial support to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. Today, our corporate giving benefits hundreds of organizations across our service area.
Grant & Sponsorship Requests
We give preference to organizations that have a 501(c)(3) designation. Organizations that do not have that designation must provide their tax ID or EIN number to be considered for funding.
Corporate Giving Criteria
We will consider applications from:
Programs and services that tie to our mission and have a compelling potential impact to the health and well-being of individuals
National organizations seeking support for local programs
Grassroots and faith-based organizations
We generally do not accept applications for or from:
Capital or building campaigns
Fraternal or civic groups
Seed money for start-up organizations
Requests for political causes or campaigns
Grants, scholarships or sponsorships to individuals
Highmark will not provide support to organizations that — in their constitution or practice discriminate against a person or group on the basis of the person's gender, race, color, age, religion, creed, ethnicity, national origin, disability, veteran or military status, marital status, sexual orientation/gender identity, genetic information or any other category protected by applicable federal, state or local law.
This statement addresses giving to a non-religious organization with an explicit policy of discrimination against Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) people.
We review grant and sponsorship requests continuously and make awards throughout the year. Submit your sponsorship request at least six weeks prior to the event. If you have multiple funding requests, please submit them at the same time.
Visit this page for additional information on grant and/or sponsorship request processes:
Highmark has a web-based application process for all grant and sponsorship requests. Requests will be considered locally and reviewed for relevance in relation to our mission.
