Established in 2014, the Bluestone Giving Foundation is a 501c3, non-profit, charitable organization funded primarily by Bluestone employees. The Foundation has provided nearly $100,000 in dental care, medical equipment, nutritional support, moving assistance, hearing aids, doll therapy, medications not covered by insurance, car repairs and household items for people in need.
Recipients of Bluestone Giving Foundation grants can be any patient of Bluestone Physician Services, care coordination members and Bluestone employees.
The purpose of the Bluestone Giving Foundation is to:
- Improve quality of life for those Bluestone serves.
- Provide emergency support to those who find themselves in need.
- Act as a liaison with local organizations who can help when the foundation cannot.
- Empower the staff of Bluestone Physician Services to give back!
“The Bluestone Giving Foundation has been a lifeline of support for many of my clients over the years. I have asked for assistance for everything from helping a member replace personal items that were lost in an apartment fire, gift cards to purchase groceries for a family in crisis, a much-needed extra pair of glasses and needed durable medical equipment. As a result of these grants, I have been able to restore dignity to many, ease their struggle and let them know they are not alone. The emotional impact of these grants has often been just as tangible as the actual physical items.”
– Bluestone Care Manager
