Launched in April 2008, the Blue Corps Employee Volunteer Program supports the efforts of selected charitable organizations with volunteers and financial contributions in the communities where we live and work. For every verified employee hour volunteered to an approved community partner, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma contributes $20 to the designated charitable organization, up to an annual contribution of $2,000. Community partners must have a 501(c)(3) status and meet corporate giving priorities. For more information, email us at ContributionRequests@bcbsok.com.
