Community Connections

We’re committed to non-profit local organizations that improve and support children’s health.


Blessings in a Backpack

The organization provides backpacks filled with nutritious food for school children to take home for the weekend and currently feeds over 92,700 children in more than 1,064 schools in more than 47 states. Cigna sponsored our first schools in 2013 and continues to sponsor more schools each year.


Cigna Foundation

Combining Cigna employees’ passion and expertise with strategic financial support, the Cigna Foundation is helping make better health a reality for individuals and communities around the globe.



As part of the Tufts University Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, this project is dedicated to reversing the trend of childhood obesity. Cigna was instrumental in the launch of the Active Schools Acceleration Project (ASAP) and is the lead sponsor in the $1 million of ASAP Acceleration Grants designed to increase students’ opportunities for physical activity by putting simple, low-cost and innovative programs into action.


Girls on the Run International

Cigna is a national sponsor of this youth development program for girls in third to eighth grade that teaches life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with a celebratory 5K running event.
