The Point32Health Foundation team with the guidance of Health Resources in Action (HRiA) has planned a series of listening sessions to listen and learn from you. What you share will help our team gain greater understanding of community priorities as we plan a new Foundation in service to community.

We are Point32Health Foundation

January 4, 2022

Point32Health Foundation works with communities to support, advocate and advance healthier lives for everyone. Formed by the combination of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation and Tufts Health Plan Foundation, we are building on a rich tradition of service and giving and working together to support communities across the region.

Together, we have invested more than $200 million to support community organizations in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. Last year, more than 200 nonprofit organizations received more than $7 million from the foundations.

We seek to collaborate with and learn from nonprofit organizations, understanding and recognizing that those most affected by inequities are in the best position to define the problem, design appropriate solutions and describe success.

Our new website will launch later this month. In the meantime, sign up for our newsletter to get news and updates.

Our team is interested in learning more about your work and is available to talk. You can reach us at foundation@tufts-health.com.

December 8, 2021

Tufts Health Plan Foundation today announced 50 community organizations across the region will receive a total of $500,000 in Momentum Fund grants to advance health equity and support community resilience. The organizations serve people disproportionately affected by the pandemic after years of system inequities, especially older people.

We must harness the community power and resilience demonstrated during the COVID-19 pandemic to show us a new way forward,” said Nora Moreno Cargie, president of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation and Tufts Health Plan Foundation and vice president for corporate citizenship at Point32Health. “We collaborated with our Harvard Pilgrim Health Care colleagues to expand our Momentum Fund grants and include investments in ten Maine organizations.”

A total of 10 organizations in each state -- Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire -- will receive unrestricted grants due to the challenges many have experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic. Resources can be used to address the most urgent community needs.

Two Foundations Working Together for Community

July 28, 2021

Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and Tufts Health Plan combined to form one organization, a new nonprofit now known as Point32Health. While remaining separate entities, our Foundations are operating as one, building on the strong community relationships we have formed over the years.

“Community is at the heart of what we do,” said Nora Moreno Cargie, who will lead the Foundations and serve as vice president for Corporate Citizenship for Point32Health. “Our greatest successes have come from listening and learning from communities. We will continue to do that and invest in what matters to community leaders.”

The Foundations already have begun working together to support nonprofit organizations in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island.

We will continue to support healthy food and healthy aging efforts. We will build on experiences with our partners as well as lessons learned during the pandemic:

  • Systemic inequities cause health disparities
  • #1 priority during the pandemic was food access
  • Older people and communities of color were disproportionately affected by pandemic
  • Collaboration is a protective factor for communities experiencing crises
