About The Foundation


In 2008, James Roosevelt Jr. created the Tufts Health Plan Foundation, fulfilling a long-held desire to use the assets of Tufts Health Plan in a way that brings demonstrable improvement to longstanding health care issues facing our communities.


Tufts Health Plan Foundation’s mission is to improve the health and wellness of the diverse communities we serve.

Our vision is that all communities are vibrant and healthy because they integrate older people, view them as a critical asset in the community, and embrace transformational policies that lead to integrated best practices and improve individual health and wellness.

Through our community investments, the Foundation has given more than $32 million to Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island nonprofits that improve healthy living with an emphasis on older people. The Foundation began funding in New Hampshire in 2016 and will begin funding in Connecticut in 2019. The Foundation funds programs that move communities toward achieving age-friendly policies and practices that are relevant, focus on the most vulnerable, and include older people in the process.
