The San Francisco-based Blue Shield of California Foundation is making $6.4 million in fourth quarter grants, bringing its 2012 total to nearly $30.3 million, officials said Wednesday. The foundation, the philanthropic arm of Blue Shield of California, said most of the new funding will be used to strengthen the Golden State’s fraying health care safety net. Anti-domestic violence programs, a longtime focus, will also benefit.
