For more than 35 years, Molina has been a purpose-driven company, committed to improving our members’ health and making a difference in the communities we serve. Molina participates in a variety of philanthropic activities, advancing our mission of providing access to people in need while empowering our employees and collaborating with mission-driven community-based organizations.
Recognizing Community Partners
Beginning in 2006, we’ve had the privilege of recognizing outstanding individuals who go above and beyond to support people in need through our Community Champions Awards Program. Across the country each year, we honor everyday heroes -- volunteers, health professionals and advocates -- who demonstrate selfless dedication to make a positive impact on the lives of others and their local communities. Each winner is honored at a recognition event and receives a grant with which they are able to “pay-it-forward” to the nonprofit of their choice.
Empowering Employees to Give Back
We want our employees to connect with the populations we serve and feel good about being able to give back to their local communities directly. Through our employee volunteer program, Helping Hands, our teams organize volunteer activities and work with hundreds of nonprofits across the country that are making positive change. Helping Hands also organizes quarterly donation drives, allowing employees to donate items that will directly help people in need. Additionally, Molina offers full-time employees with a Volunteer Time Off (VTO) benefit, which gives them paid time off to participate in volunteer activities.
Investing in Causes and Organizations Making a Difference Locally
We realize that our work is often made possible through collaboration with individuals and nonprofits across the country working to improve access to health care, education, food and other important resources critical to staying healthy. We make it a priority to invest in programs, grants and other special grassroots projects locally in the markets we serve. Across the country, we organize and sponsor community events including baby showers, back-to-school events, coat drives, healthy food giveaways and many other local initiatives aimed at improving the health and well-being of the populations we serve. We also find unique ways to make lasting investments in the community through various beautification projects and several “Molina Closet” programs. The closets, made possible by donations from Molina Healthcare and its employees, serve as permanent places for people in need to go for necessities like diapers and other baby items for new parents, and personal care items like shampoo and toothpaste for people working to transition into permanent, independent housing.
We are committed to promoting a sustainable work environment and have taken steps to minimize our impact on the environment. Through energy-saving strategies, ethical practices and a priority of reducing waste, Molina is proactive in identifying ways to minimize our footprint. We encourage our employees to do so as well by promoting use of electric vehicles, offering a robust rideshare program and organizing Helping Hands volunteer activities that keep our communities clean.
