Blue Shield foundation makes $9 million in Q4 grants
San Francisco Business Times

The Blue Shield of California Foundation, Blue Shield of California’s philanthropic arm, is making nearly $9 million in fourth quarter grants, bringing 2011’s total to $27 million, or $5 million more than last year. The San Francisco-based charity said Wednesday that most of the grants are aimed at streghtening the state’s health care safety net prior to full implementation of national health reform in 2014. (Assuming, of course, that it survives a review by the U.S. Supreme Court next spring.)
