Community Engagement

We are Health Care with Heart®

Giving back to our communities is at the heart of our mission at CareSource, and our employees share in that effort by contributing time and talent. Whether distributing food at food pantries or lending their skills on community boards, employee volunteering is an important component in solving our communities’ toughest issues.

Corporate Volunteer Events

Every year, CareSource coordinates company-wide, corporate-sponsored volunteer events that deploy hundreds of volunteers in communities where they live and work.

Volunteer Matching Gifts

CareSource provides paid time off for employees to volunteer, and the CareSource Foundation supports active volunteerism, rewarding employees for their enthusiastic efforts. To that effect, the Foundation honors employees’ commitment to organizations through Volunteer Matching Gifts.

  • Individual Volunteers: Employees who regularly volunteer their time to a nonprofit organization they’re passionate about earn a Foundation contribution to the nonprofit of their choice.
  • Group Volunteer Events: Employees who organize team volunteer events with nonprofit organizations they care about can earn a Foundation gift for that organization to honor their contribution.
  • Employee Participation: Employees are encouraged to put together teams of their colleagues to participate in a qualifying walk, run or similar fundraising event. The Foundation will provide a gift per entrant.

Through strong partnerships with community organizations, Culture Works and its sister United Arts Funds serve as advocates, organizers, influencers and funders to help the arts thrive. CareSource partners with Culture Works to facilitate contributions to other arts funds across CareSource’s markets.
