“Through our Healthy Kids, Healthy Families grant program we are building important partnerships with non-profits to improve the health and wellness of Oklahomans,” said Ted Haynes, President of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma. “Investing in health focused programs allows us to live our company’s purpose of being there for our community in sickness and in health. This year’s recipients are helping Oklahomans of all ages, in every corner of the state, covering issues ranging from diabetes to mental health.”
In 2015, HKHF received applications from organizations across the state. Each application was evaluated on the basis of impact, feasibility, capacity, collaboration and sustainability. All grant recipients are community partners that share BCBSOK’s vision of improving the health and wellness of Oklahoma children and their families.

As a signature program of BCBSOK’s community investments, HKHF was initially designed to improve the health status of at least one million children, a goal that was surpassed in the first few years of the program. HKHF is part of an ongoing commitment to invest in and partner with non-profit organizations that offer sustainable, measurable programs to reach children and their families in four key areas: nutrition, physical activity, preventing and managing disease, and supporting safe environments.
