Associates
in Action

Commitment

Anthem associates contribute their time, energy, and resources to the communities where they live and work. We support our associates’ engagement with qualified charitable organizations through a range of programs.

Programs

Dollars for Dollars

Anthem associates give generously to health-related nonprofit organizations across the country through our Dollars for Dollars program with a 1:1 match from the Anthem Foundation. In 2021, nearly $7 million was raised.

Associates can also donate to the Anthem Cares Fund to help colleagues who need financial assistance because of disasters or personal hardships, including the pandemic.

Dollars for Doers

The Dollars for Doers program encourages associates to volunteer year-round—and helps them further commit to their communities by offering rewards that the associates can direct to charities they choose.

While 2021 posed special challenges, Anthem associates rose to the occasion and volunteered over 91,000 hours, virtually and in person, generating more than $720,000 in Dollars for Doers rewards that were distributed to community nonprofits.

Anthem Volunteer Days

Each fall, our associates and leaders join in a season of service. The Anthem Volunteer Days program, made possible through a partnership with Lions Clubs International, has engaged more than 10,000 volunteers, who have donated 27,500 hours of service in hundreds of projects benefiting two million Americans since 2015.

Volunteer Time Off

Anthem offers time off to help associates support organizations that are important to them. Because many such opportunities occur during work hours, allowing full-time associates to use the Volunteer Time Off program allows more of them to help. Eligible associates receive up to eight hours of paid time to volunteer at qualified charities of their choice.

Volunteer Recognition

Throughout the year, Anthem associates are invited to share their volunteer stories and personal reasons for giving back, as well as to nominate their colleagues who go “above and beyond.” The Anthem Foundation recognizes these efforts by selecting a grand-prize winner who exemplifies our mission to improve lives and communities. Volunteer Recognition winners choose charities to which the Anthem Foundation awards special grants.
