A health insurer says employees and an affiliated foundation are continuing to give to charity.

Employees of WellPoint Inc., Indianapolis, have pledged to give more than $16 million to about 10,000 charities, and a 50% match from the WellPoint foundation will increase the total to $24 million, according to Empire BlueCross BlueShield, New York, a WellPoint unit.

Employees at Empire Blue alone are giving about $1 million to charity, Empire Blue says.
