Red Cross Ad Highlights Corporate Giving
The new issue of Fortune magazine includes an advertisement from the American Red Cross describing the role ongoing support from corporations and corporate foundations plays in the organization’s ability to carryout its mission. The WellPoint Foundation is honored to be a member of the American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program and to be included in the magazine advertisement.
Members of the Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program pledge donations on an ongoing basis, in advance of major disasters, to help the Red Cross ensure an immediate response to meet the needs of those affected by disasters of all sizes, at no cost and regardless of income. WellPoint’s support for the American Red Cross comes primarily from the company’s annual Associate Giving Campaign. Employee contributions to the Red Cross made through the annual charitable pledge drive receive a 50 percent match from the WellPoint Foundation.
Fortune magazine is on newsstands now and includes the new Fortune 500 list.
