LOS ANGELES – In April, the Philanthropy-Joining Forces Impact Pledge announced $7 million in new investments to strengthen services and support for millions of veterans and military families across the U.S.

Through this pledge, the Blue Shield of California Foundation has planned and fulfilled a $1 million commitment made in March 2015 to support vital programs like zero8hundred and Blue Star Families that link service members to resources in health, employment, education, and personal connections. These efforts reach 1.5 million military family members annually.

Blue Shield of California Foundation accelerates system-wide solutions that address domestic violence and healthcare disparities in California. Since 2010, the Foundation has invested more than $3 million to help organizations and communities more effectively meet the needs of military service members and prevent family violence.

With their commitments, Blue Shield of California Foundation, Orange County Community Foundation, and Rancho Santa Fe Foundation join 32 philanthropic organizations and corporations that have pledged since 2014 in response to the call of First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden to the nation to join forces in supporting veterans and military families.
