Humana sponsors and partners with organizations that share our commitment to advancing health equity and addressing health disparities. Many Humana employees choose to give back to their communities by volunteering with those organizations, including Humana's Bold Goal, The Foundation, and Sponsorship partners.

As part of its Bold Goal and Community of Opportunity efforts, Humana sponsored a Women’s Health Fair at the Louisville Urban League’s Sports and Learning Campus in Louisville, Humana’s hometown. In 2020, Humana donated $6.5 million to help open the track, an investment toward rebuilding, relief, equity and inclusion efforts in Louisville to address racial inequity and unite for a stronger community.

Through a partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Humana is addressing social determinants that can substantially impact the health of our nation’s youth, including food insecurity and access to healthy lifestyle information, while promoting equity and inclusiveness to empower youth to reach their full potential. Humana will provide nationwide support to activate Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Healthy Habits curriculum across their 4,700 Club footprint and will co-sponsor 10 community gardens to be designed, built and maintained by Club members with support from the local community as well as Humana’s members and employees.

Another key sponsorship that Humana supports to help advance health equity is the Derby Equity & Community Initiative (DECI), a combined effort with the Kentucky Derby Festival that aims to incorporate equitable programming into the Derby season, with the intention of directing economic impact and ensuring a sense of belonging to Louisville communities that have encountered a lack of access to those opportunities and the spirit of Derby season. As part of the DECI initiative, Humana expanded its longtime support for Jefferson County Public Schools by sponsoring the inaugural JusticeFest event. During the event, school children from grades 3-12 pitched ideas to local community and business leaders to propose solutions to community-wide issues. The students covered a wide range of topics related to health equity, including homelessness, the environment, diversity and inclusion, and other social justice issues, with an aim to create opportunities for hope and healing in Louisville.

Humana also sponsors several national active lifestyle initiatives for seniors, including Silver Sneakers and National Senior Games.
