New investments promote policy change to make communities that work for all generations

The Foundation today announced 11 new community investments of more than $1.2 million, reflecting our commitment to advancing policies and practices that support healthy aging. These investments are in addition to more than $2 million in previously announced work.

"Advocating for public policy or systems change is essential to achieving social change at scale," said Thomas P. O'Neill, who chairs the Tufts Health Plan Foundation board of directors. "By supporting age-friendly efforts, the Foundation hopes to create communities that work for all generations."

Annual report celebrates Foundation's First Decade

For 10 years, Tufts Health Plan Foundation has been steadfast in its commitment to healthy aging, embracing a strong core belief: Communities that listen to and include older people in solutions are stronger, more vibrant and healthier. In this report, we look back on our first decade. And while it only highlights our milestones and features a few stories, it shows how our grantmaking has expanded to include innovative multiyear initiatives and strong collaborations with roots in community.
