Caring for Our Most Vulnerable

At the IBC Foundation, we’re committed to improving access to high-quality health care for everyone, regardless of income or insurance status.

To help individuals and families who face significant barriers to receiving health care, we award Blue Safety Net grants to non-profit, privately funded “safety net” health clinics that provide free or nominal-fee care to the uninsured and medically underserved in our local communities.
