For 2021, we’re taking a special approach to project proposals in celebration of our 75th anniversary. The BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Foundation is building 10 BlueCross Healthy Places across Tennessee. The foundation will invest $750,000 in each project, and each space will be constructed based on one of six project templates.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
