Five community organizations receive grants through Tufts Health Plan Employee recommendations
Five diverse community organizations will receive grants to help address the COVID-19 pandemic from Tufts Health Plan Foundation through a program engaging Tufts Health Plan employees in grantmaking. The organizations, with missions ranging from serving people experiencing homelessness to supporting veterans and LGBTQ+ youth, will each receive $10,000 in funding.
"While physical distancing is keeping us apart, our employees are still finding ways to show their commitment to community," said Tufts Health Plan President and CEO Tom Croswell, who also serves on the Tufts Health Plan Foundation board of directors.
The grants were made through a program involving Tufts Health Plan's five business resource groups (BRGs). Each BRG recommended an organization aligned with its affinity. The Foundation doubled the funding available for this year's grants, recognizing community organizations need additional resources as they find new ways to deliver services and supports while addressing an increase in demand during the coronavirus pandemic.
