What types of programs does the Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation support?
Our Foundation is committed to improving the health and well-being of our fellow Mississippians with a focus on healthy eating and exercise. To view our grants and partnerships, go to the "Grant History" page of this website.
What is the process for applying for funding?
In brief, an organization must submit a Letter of Inquiry to begin the grant application process. Based on the information in the Letter of Inquiry, the Foundation may request a full grant application.
How will I know if the Foundation has received my Letter of Inquiry?
When you have completed your Letter of Inquiry and click the "Submit My Inquiry" button you will receive a screen message (not an email) thanking you for submitting a Letter of Inquiry and for your interest in working with the Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation. Once your Letter of Inquiry has been reviewed, you will receive one of the following:
- A request for more information
- A request for a full grant application
- A letter informing you that the Foundation has elected not to fund your project
Can I change my Letter of Inquiry once it has been submitted?
No. Once a Letter of Inquiry is submitted, it is no longer available for you to edit.
What is the deadline to submit Letters of Inquiry?
There is no deadline. The Foundation accepts Letters of Inquiry throughout the year.
