Humana Foundation Relaunches Signature Philanthropic Program, Increasing Humana Communities Benefit Grant Amount To $350,000 For Nonprofits In Tampa Bay, Chicago And San Antonio

Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) and the Humana Foundation, the company’s philanthropic arm, today announced a relaunch of their signature Humana Communities Benefit program, which will now award multi-year grants totaling $350,000 to an eligible nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization in each of three areas: Tampa Bay, Chicago and San Antonio. Organizations focused on promoting healthy behaviors and healthy relationships will be considered.

Also new to this year’s charitable giving program is the launch of an online community vote as part of the judging process, which will take place at the finalist stage.

The new structure of the Humana Communities Benefit program will award nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations a three-year infusion of funds, enabling the winning nonprofits to receive $200,000 the first year; $100,000 the second year; and $50,000 in the final year. Winners will use the Humana Foundation grant to create new programs or enhance ongoing activities that have a positive, transformational impact on the organization and the community.

“This new approach with Humana Communities Benefit is a natural evolution for the program as Humana and the Humana Foundation work to improve the health of the communities we serve nationwide,” said Humana President and CEO Bruce Broussard, who announced the new program today at a news conference in St. Petersburg, Fla. “We have added several new features to the program, including the online vote, which provides an opportunity for each community to have a stake in which organization in each region is awarded our $350,000 grant.”

The three areas for the charitable giving program’s new approach this spring are Tampa Bay, Chicago and San Antonio.

“As we ushered in the renewal of Humana Communities Benefit, it was important for us to select communities where Humana has deep roots,” said Virginia Kelly Judd, Executive Director of the Humana Foundation. “We are excited to host this new phase of our charitable grant program in Tampa Bay, where Humana has its largest associate population (more than 3,500 Humana associates) outside of our corporate hometown, Louisville, Ky.; Chicago, where we started Humana Communities Benefit in 2003; and San Antonio, a new location for the program but a city where Humana has had a presence for more than three decades.”

The Humana Foundation charitable program has awarded more than $8 million to nonprofits in 11 communities nationwide since launching in Chicago in 2003. Previously, Humana Communities Benefit annually awarded one-time, $100,000 charitable grants to nonprofits.

“Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful is so excited to break ground on the Humana Educational Pavilion at the Florida Learning Garden in Tampa thanks to the 2013 Humana Communities Benefit grant,” said Debbie Evenson, Executive Director of Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful. “The Pavilion will provide an opportunity for children to learn about growing techniques and sustainable practices in a hands-on, educational environment that encourages healthy eating and healthy behaviors.”
