Tufts Health Plan
Tufts Health Plan has been named a 2020 honoree of The Civic 50, by Points of Light. The award recognizes superior corporate citizenship programs and showcases how companies use their time, skills and resources to impact their communities.
The Civic 50 honorees are selected based on four dimensions of their United States community engagement program including investment, integration, institutionalization, and impact. Both public and private companies with United States operations are considered.
Tufts Health Plan’s corporate citizenship program works to be responsive, relevant, and flexible. Along with Tufts Health Plan Foundation, the company recently undertook several initiatives in response to social justice and equity issues throughout the country as well as the COVID-19 pandemic:
- Committing $200,000 to social justice organizations advancing racial equity.
- Giving an additional $1 million from the Tufts Health Plan Foundation endowment to support organizations responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. It also advanced payments to grantees— deploying $1.5 million more to strengthen communities—and is providing current grantees flexibility to redeploy existing funds to address emerging community needs.
- Providing nonprofits in the region with much-needed supplies including diapers, hand sanitizer, personal protective equipment, grocery gift cards, and meals.
- Matching donations two-to-one from employees and board members to local nonprofits addressing social justice and the COVID-19 pandemic. More than $200,000 has been donated through the match program since March.
- Establishing an Employee Relief Fund to support employees who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and are experiencing financial hardship, such as the loss of a job by someone in their household.
