Introducing Blue Fund

Blue Fund is a grant program that makes meaningful investments to improve the health and sustainability of our community. Our region is going through a transformational time. From innovative businesses to a vibrant downtown, Western New York continues to rise to the challenge. We see this pivotal moment as an opportunity.

Our Focus

We are focused on improving the health of the communities we serve in Western New York. Blue Fund focuses on the following health areas: behavioral health, cardiovascular health, health care workforce development, and healthy children. We are dedicated to making a change in the health and lives of the communities we serve by funding evidence-based health programs of nonprofit, educational, or government entities. 

Key Health Areas

Key health areas were chosen based on public health studies, our own claims data, and input from community leaders. We believe these areas of focus have the highest impact on the overall health and well-being of Western New York residents. Providing funding to local organizations will help us to reach further and support greater change than we could alone.
