“Since the founding of the Blue & You Foundation for a Healthier Arkansas, we have awarded grants to organizations in every region of the state, funding projects that improve the health of our communities,” said the executive director of the Foundation, Rebecca Pittillo.
“We are fortunate to live in a state where organizations work so hard to find solutions to health issues that plague the state and the nation. The Foundation is interested in applicants who recognize the need to address the social determinants of health, improve behavioral health in Arkansas, impact maternal and pediatric health, work to eliminate disparities in health and treat medical conditions in innovative ways to improve health care for Arkansans,” she added.
The Blue & You Foundation is a charitable foundation created and funded by Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield to promote better health in nature. Since 2001, the Blue & You Foundation has awarded more than $49 million to nonprofit organizations and government agencies in all 75 counties.
