Posted on: December 9, 2013

The Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Foundation is dedicated to improving the health of Michigan residents through the support of research and innovative programs. The BCBSM Foundation is the philanthropic affiliate of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. The BCBSM Foundation focuses its funding within Michigan on the following priorities:

  • Quality and Costs of Care
  • Access to Care
  • Community Health

Approximately $2.75 million is available annually for grants to support the health care-related work of Michigan's researchers and nonprofit community organizations. The BCBSM Foundation programs support research, foster community solutions to critical health care problems, acknowledge excellence in research, and support medical and doctoral students interested in health care. The foundation's board of directors meets to review grant proposals in March, July and November. Typically the BCBSM Foundation needs to receive proposals at least five months prior to the targeted board meeting. Individual program requirements may vary.
