As such, our corporate giving program is directed toward local agencies and non-profit organizations that provide needed services to communities near our corporate headquarters in North Richland Hills, Texas as well as the field offices for HealthMarkets Insurance Agency. From providing financial contributions to volunteering personal time, we are committed to making a positive difference.

Eligibility Guidelines

With few exceptions, our giving is concentrated in three areas: health & wellness programs, children’s programs, and community programs.

We primarily support initiatives only in the communities in which we operate and where our employees and agents live and work.

We prefer programs that provide direct service to individuals and communities in need rather than event sponsorships.

We prefer to make grants for specific projects with measurable results, rather than for general operating support.

We require organizations that receive our contributions be able to demonstrate that they spend at least 75 percent of their annual budget on the programs and services they exist to support.

We fund organizations with an IRS exempt status under section 501(c)(3) that are fiscally sound with strong management practices and accountability.

Since the Company receives funding requests far in excess of our annual giving program budget, we must often decline to support worthy organizations and programs. Such a response does not reflect in any way a negative appraisal of the prospective organization or the value of its services. us leo.
