Tufts Health Plan Foundation Commits $250,000 to Support Age-Friendly Massachusetts

April 11, 2018

Tufts Health Plan Foundation is investing $250,000 over the next five years to accelerate Massachusetts’ age-friendly efforts. The announcement came during the AARP Massachusetts 2018 Volunteer Engagement Conference, where Governor Charlie Baker released the initial blueprint of recommendations by the Governor’s Council to Address Aging in Massachusetts. Governor Baker also accepted a certificate recognizing Massachusetts’ entry into AARP’s Network of Age-Friendly States. Massachusetts is one of only two states in the network.

Tufts Health Plan Foundation is the only regional funder focused solely on healthy aging, supporting efforts to build communities that thrive and work for people of all ages.

“Many of Massachusetts’ older adults have the time, energy and talent available to start a second or third career, volunteer in their community, become a mentor or pursue an unfulfilled passion,” said Governor Baker. “We are fortunate to work with groups like Tufts Health Plan Foundation who are willing to provide their time, energy and support to help make Massachusetts a leader on aging.”
