The Cigna Group Foundation

For more than 50 years, The Cigna Group Foundation has been delivering on the mission of The Cigna GroupSM, alongside its nonprofit partners, to improve the health and vitality of those we serve.

Our Philosophy

Every day, we have an opportunity to make a difference in the health of our communities and create a better future.

Our charitable giving philosophy focuses on socioeconomic status, education, neighborhood and physical environment, employment, and social support networks, as well as access to health care – otherwise known as Social Determinants of Health (SDOH). Our philanthropy goes beyond financial contributions to include employee engagement, volunteer activities and community involvement.

We meet our charitable giving goals by partnering with nonprofit organizations and through the following grant programs.

2022 Contributions

In 2022, The Cigna Group Foundation awarded more than $13.1 million in grants to support nonprofits that share our commitment to enhancing health and vitality.

Our Grant Programs 

The following grant programs were available in 2023. Grant programs for 2024 are coming soon.

Healthier Kids For Our Future®

A five-year, $25 million global initiative that addresses the challenges affecting children’s health today. Our program has two focus areas: reducing food insecurity, and addressing the mental health and emotional well-being of children throughout the world.

Health and Well-Being

Addresses several critical areas of health, including health navigation to improve overall access to care, treatment, and prescriptions; prevention, treatment, and research of chronic diseases; wellness programs promoting exercise, fitness, and healthy lifestyle choices; programs addressing mental and/or behavioral health conditions; dental programs; and maternal, prenatal, and newborn health.

Education and Workforce Development

Focuses on the education of those enrolled in pre-K, K-8, high school, and postsecondary education as well as others considering health care-related jobs. Additionally, programs are focused on increasing the cultural competency of health care professionals by helping them to better understand health disparities among vulnerable populations.
We are committed to pursuing healthier communities by coming together to help everyone achieve better health and vitality. Partnering with local, national, and international organizations affords us the opportunity to make tangible impacts in vulnerable populations across the street and around the world.
