Highmark Delaware BluePrints for the Community
In 2007, Highmark Delaware established BluePrints for the Community, a grant program to help address the issues faced by Delaware's uninsured and underserved populations. The program was established as a donor-advised fund at the Delaware Community Foundation, a nonprofit organization that manages and administers charitable funds throughout Delaware. Since its inception, the grant program has awarded 89 grants, totaling more than $12 million.
The grant program focuses on:
- Increasing access to health care for the uninsured/underserved
- Reducing health disparities in minority communities
- Supporting early childhood development with initiatives focused on health
- Recruiting and training health care professionals.
