Social responsibility

Our approach to social responsibility ties directly to our purpose: Helping people on their path to better health.

Our giving

We’re making a positive impact in the communities we serve with meaningful investments and support.

Our grants provide support to nonprofit organizations that provide increased access to quality health care services in the communities we serve. Community grants are available by invitation only.

We work with best-in-class partners to help tackle the key health care challenges our patients are facing.

The CVS Health Foundation provides strategic investments to partners that are helping to increase community-based access to health care for underserved populations, create innovative approaches to chronic disease management and provide tobacco cessation and youth prevention programming.

Corporate social responsibility

Grounded in four pillars — Healthy People, Healthy Business, Healthy Community and Healthy Planet — our CSR strategy is more inclusive of our broader enterprise and the impact we can have as a health care leader.

Our annual CSR report engages our key stakeholders around our CSR strategy, our progress and our roadmap.
