Join us for a Fireside Chat on COVID's Impact on Corporate Philanthropy 


The WRAG Corporate Affinity Group invites corporate foundations and giving programs investing in our region to join us for a conversation to welcome the New Year. We will discuss trust-based philanthropy, COVID-19 health equity issues in the DMV, and #WRAGMember CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield's PPE Distribution project. The not-for-profit health insurer responded dynamically to the pandemic by changing their internal processes for giving, enabling them to support the community where it was most needed. 

CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield was selected by the Washington Business Journal to receive their 2020 Citizenship Award for their plan to distribute PPE to regional healthcare workers. Join us for a discussion on health equity issues and their distribution plan with Dr. Destiny-Simone Ramjohn, Vice President of Community Health and Social Impact for CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield. 

The fight against COVID-19 is not over yet, and Dr. Ramjohn will share with us how one of the World's Most Ethical Companies is gearing up to execute a new round of PPE distribution.
