In October 2011, Independence Blue Cross (Independence) launched a charitable, private foundation — the Independence Blue Cross Foundation (IBC Foundation) — with a mission to lead sustainable solutions that improve the health and well-being of the community.
The IBC Foundation complements and expands upon IBC’s nearly 80-year commitment to improving the health and wellness of our neighbors in southeastern Pennsylvania .
The IBC Foundation funds programs and initiatives that advance caring for our region’s most vulnerable, enhance health care delivery, and build healthy communities.
At the heart of all we do is a set of core principles.
Thought leadership. We act as a leading voice in addressing the greatest challenges facing our health care system.
Innovation. We redefine the health care system to deliver quality, accessible, and affordable care to all.
Collaboration. We work together with all stakeholders to address the needs of our community.
Engagement. We raise awareness and empower our neighbors to take a more active role in the health of their community.
Sustainability. We support the growth of a stronger and more viable health care system for future generations.
