Social responsibility

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.
