Tufts Health Plan Foundation announces additional funding for organizations responding to coronavirus

Tufts Health Plan Foundation board approved an additional $900,000 to support recovery and rebuilding efforts addressing the effects of the coronavirus pandemic in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Connecticut. The Foundation's commitment to COVID-19 response now reaches nearly $2 million.

"Even as we grapple with the effects of the virus, we must consider future implications," said Tom Croswell, president and CEO of Tufts Health Plan. "This crisis draws attention to deeply rooted systemic health disparities. This additional funding will support nonprofit organizations in their work to address the health and wellbeing of people in communities across the region."
New investments support collaborative community efforts and systems change

The Foundation announced 13 new grants -- totaling $1.7 million -- to support collaborative community efforts and systems change to advance healthy aging.

"We have an opportunity to think differently about how our systems are addressing community needs," said Nora Moreno Cargie, president of Tufts Health Plan Foundation and vice president for corporate citizenship at Tufts Health Plan. " We are living in unprecedented times. We need to learn from this experience and think about how we can change the conditions that hold problems in place."

Foundation continues to match donations to social justice organizations and those affected by coronavirus

The Foundation is offering a two-for-one match to Tufts Health Plan employees and board members who donate to social justice organizations and those affected by the coronavirus. More than $245,000 has been contributed to nonprofits through this program since March.
