Aetna has a long tradition of giving and community support that
crystallized in 1972, when the Aetna Foundation was established. Over
the years, we have strengthened disease prevention programs, helped
revitalize neighborhoods, supported the arts, provided aid to those in
need, and listened to the diverse voices that shape our nation. Since
1980, Aetna and the Aetna Foundation have contributed $394 million in
grants and sponsorships.
Today, as we work to improve the health status and quality of care of the individual and community, we focus our efforts on opportunities that lead to meaningful improvements in health and the health care system.
