employee volunteers


Throughout the Highmark Health enterprise, our work is tied to a larger social mission to build stronger communities of healthier people. That same mission guides our organizational giving — totaling $223 million in 2016.

Much of that giving takes the form of providing health coverage and care to those who are unable to pay for services. Philanthropic giving is just as important — including a United Way campaign that raises millions of dollars each year, the work of our foundations, and hundreds of sponsorships and grants that help health, wellness, education, human services, arts, and other community-based organizations. The same spirit of giving drives the time and effort our employees dedicate to volunteering.

Highmark Health proudly builds on the decades-long legacy of giving established by Highmark Inc. and its predecessors, as well as the community-based hospitals that are now part of the Allegheny Health Network.
