Free Workshop for Grantees on Financial Sustainability

Are you interested in learning sustainability principles to grow your own funding? If so, sign up now for our first workshop in a new speaker series designed for our grantees.


Tufts Health Plan Foundation grantees have expressed interest in assistance from the foundation beyond grant dollars. In response, the foundation is pleased to partner with Root Cause to develop a series around topics important to nonprofits. The first in this series will be a focus on financial sustainability.


The workshop will be led by Root Cause's Stephen Pratt, director of consulting, and Susan Musinsky, Social Innovation Forum director. The two will share the financial sustainability framework they have developed, including real-life examples, and engage in a dialogue about how participants might employ sustainability principles and create an organizational relationship map to expand and grow their own funding -- ultimately growing their organizations.

Tuesday, February 25
8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.
Tufts Health Plan, 705 Mt. Auburn Street in Watertown


Space is limited. Click here to RSVP by February 20.


Please note there is free visitor parking at Tufts Health Plan.

Highlights from our Healthy Aging Forum

More than 400 Massachusetts government and business leaders, policy makers, community advocates, and health and wellness providers convened on January 24, 2014 at the Boston Marriott Newton for "Healthy Aging in the Commonwealth: Charting a Path Forward," which we held in partnership with the Massachusetts Health Policy Forum.

Healthy Aging Data Report  
At this year's forum, we unveiled the highly-anticipated Massachusetts Healthy Aging Data Report: Community Profiles, the first-of-its-kind report to list nearly 100 healthy aging indicators for older adults in each of the Commonwealth's 351 cities and towns plus the 16 neighborhoods of Boston.


The report was featured in a Boston Globe article on disparities in aging across the state.


Read our press release to learn more about the findings. You can also explore the Healthy Aging Data Report, including the Highlights Report, each of the 367 Community Profiles and interactive maps of the data on the Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative website.

Join the Collaborative!

At the forum, we also launched a new website for the Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative designed to connect professionals, advocates, senior activists, and communities in the field of healthy aging. We encourage you to join the website community and share ideas and resources online. Become a member today!
