Highmark Local Workforce Initiative

Highmark Local Workforce Initiative

Providing support to the communities we serve

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 and goes beyond the careful and deliberate distribution of dollars and cents. We live by the truth that we have a responsibility to give back, reinvest and ensure that those communities remain as strong and healthy as possible.

In 2011, we launched the Highmark Local Workforce Initiative with the assistance of union officials, community partners and workforce development experts. The two-year, $2.4 million initiative provided cash grants of at least $50,000 to 31 nonprofit organizations across Pennsylvania. As a result, more than 5,900 individuals received job search and training assistance and 785 program participants secured employment. To view the full impact of the initiative, read the Highmark Local Workforce Initiative report in its entirety.

If your organization, program or project meets our corporate giving criteria, we encourage you to find out how to submit a grant or sponsorship request.
