The BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Community Trust is accepting funding requests for January-June 2019. The deadline to submit requests for funding cycle 1 of 2019 is Nov. 1, 2018.
Through the Community Trust, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee funds charitable health clinics and organizations that focus on youth development or disease-specific research and advocacy.

The Community Trust is a separate philanthropic entity from the BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Health Foundation, which funds the BlueCross Healthy Place program.

The BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Community Trust was formed in 1999 and supports the communities it serves through charitable giving to programs that enhance and emphasize healthy living, health care access and quality of life for all.
