$10,000 UnitedHealthcare ‘Community Care Award’

UnitedHealthcare knows that the contribution we make in communities extends beyond the service we deliver to our members. That’s why UnitedHealthcare will award $10,000 to a Syracuse-area small business as part of our Community Care Award; a competition that seeks the best new idea for enhancing community health and wellness.  

New York businesses with two to 250 employees in Oswego, Onondaga, Cortland, Madison, and Oneida counties are eligible to submit a project idea for enhancing their communities’ health and wellness. Projects can be new ideas or existing programs. Businesses simply need to submit their project idea using the online application before midnight on Friday, September 29, 2017.

All projects must include a partnership with a local nonprofit organization. Applicants are asked to describe in 300 words or less the community activity their company will engage in with their non-profit partner, including description of project, duration and employee involvement.

Judges will evaluate the project submissions and select the top-five projects based on criteria such as potential community impact, creativity, uniqueness and feasibility.  

The top-five applicants and representatives from their benefiting nonprofits will be invited in November to a live pitch and networking event in Syracuse, New York where a panel of business, community and health care leaders will select the 2017 UnitedHealthcare Community Care Award winner.  

The 2016 UnitedHealthcare Community Care Award went to Simply Ballroom. A dance studio based in Richmond, Virginia.  Simply Ballroom used the $10,000 award to fund its therapeutic dance classes for individuals with Parkinson’s disease.  To review the official rules and apply for the award as a Richmond, VA business owner go to www.uhc.com/communitycare.

  2. Congratulations for the award function. I went for an official meet organized by our boss at one of the nearly located corporate events NYC last week. Food was of high quality. Loved the gifts distributed to all the employees and clients. Looking forward for another one planned next month.
