Welcome our New Executive Director  
Nora Moreno Cargie 
Today, the foundation announced a new executive director, Nora Moreno Cargie. Nora will also serve a dual role as vice president of corporate citizenship for Tufts Health Plan.


Nora's career is rich in convening and leading collaborations among diverse stakeholders, with extensive experience in public policy, community advocacy, community relations and philanthropy. She most recently served as the director of global corporate citizenship for The Boeing Company, where she led corporate citizenship efforts at Boeing's Chicago office using philanthropy, volunteerism and other strategies to address community issues and concerns.


Nora will be leveraging this experience in Tufts Health Plan's corporate citizenship efforts and linking them to the foundation's work. As executive director of the foundation, Nora will lead all activities to further the foundation's goal of advancing healthy aging in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. She will report to Jim Roosevelt who remains in his role as president of the foundation. Read the full press release here.

Training the Next Generation of Philanthropists
Future Philanthropists on site visit day

The foundation recently completed the third year of our Future Philanthropists Initiative, a program designed to engage and empower youth to work collectively to serve older adults through philanthropy.


As part of the program, the students are tasked with undertaking a full grant process, including proposal reviews and site visits, and were allotted $20,000 from the foundation to award as grants to organizations focused on improving the lives of older adults.


This year, the students selected four Boston-based organizations to receive funding: The LGBT Aging Project, FriendshipWorks, Whittier Street Health Center and HearthLearn more in our press release.
