Community Reinvestment Program

Banner has HEART

Our Mission, Our Community

To help us fulfill our mission to make health care easier, so life can be better, the Banner – University Family Care (B – UFC) Community Reinvestment Program provides philanthropic support to community-based organizations to improve access to both high-quality medical care and community-based services which address the social risk factors of health.

B – UFC will make community reinvestment funding available to organizations based on internally established priorities related to the health and wellbeing of our members and the communities we serve.

B – UFC is seeking proposals related to Health-Related Social Needs (HRSN) with an emphasis on Health Equity and addressing social risk factors. Health Equity is the state in which everyone has a fair and just opportunity to attain their highest level of health. HRSN are the living conditions that affect a person’s ability to be healthy, increase health care costs, and contribute to disparities in health equity.

Priority will be given to applicants with services/activities not currently covered by Title XIX/XXI and have a focus on housing, non-medical transportation, activities to combat social isolation, reducing recidivism for justice-involved members, employment and educational support, or other programs that address the adverse social conditions negatively impacting health outcomes.
