A community that harnesses the dynamism and contributions of older people is best positioned to move forward and become a great place to grow up and grow old. Tufts Health Plan Foundation supports system change to improve community wellbeing for all ages, particularly older people. The Foundation boosts the vitality and energy of our communities by investing in nonprofit organizations whose work fosters healthy living with a focus on healthy aging. Ideas must demonstrate evidence-based or evidence-informed practice or have potential to move our society toward wellbeing and improved health outcomes. Through Systems and Best Practices, Policy and Advocacy, or Collaboration and Community Engagement, we promote core principles of collaboration, equity, community engagement and sustainable change.

For ease in applying, our process is online. Your grant application should be submitted to the Foundation by 4 p.m. on the relevant due date.

Please note the following:

  • Organizations may submit multiple letters of intent (LOI), but only one grant will be considered per year.
  • Multi-year proposals will be considered.
  • We will fund only one grant per organization during any given cycle. If your organization is currently receiving funding from the Tufts Health Plan Foundation, you may apply for new funding if the next grant would begin after your current grant ends.
  • Once a grant has been awarded, organizations will be expected to submit an interim report each year of the grant and a final report at the conclusion of the grant. All reports are submitted online through our CyberGrants system.
