Tufts Health Plan Foundation announced today it is donating an additional $1 million to area non-profits focused on health equity and the social determinants of health. The 40 grants will be distributed to organizations in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island in honor of Tufts Health Plan’s 40th anniversary and its longstanding tradition of giving back to the community. This $1 million is above the Foundation’s annual grantmaking levels.

“We recognize that non-profit organizations are on the frontlines of service and play a crucial role in building stronger and healthier communities for all of us,” said Tom Croswell, president and CEO of Tufts Health Plan. “These angel grants are a way of saying ‘thank you’ to those organizations addressing the economic and social conditions that influence the health of our diverse communities and helping them to keep up the great work they do.”

The $25,000 grants—10 in each of the states where Tufts Health Plan serves members—support a range of nonprofit organizations doing exemplary work to promote community health and wellness. The organizations receiving grants work on a variety of issues including housing and homelessness, assistance to vulnerable children and families, and ensuring a complete count in the upcoming U.S. Census. (Census data are used to determine the distribution of federal funds, grants and support to states, counties and communities.)

“We know that health happens where we live, work and play,” said Nora Moreno Cargie, president of Tufts Health Plan Foundation and vice president for corporate citizenship at Tufts Health Plan. “Our motivation is to boost organizations addressing issues that adversely affect health and reduce health disparities.”
