Tufts Foundation Supports Age-Friendly Massachusetts

Published on 4/20/2018
Tufts Health Plan Foundation is investing $250,000 over the next five years to accelerate Massachusetts' age-friendly efforts. The Foundation is the only regional funder focused solely on healthy aging. This includes supporting efforts to build communities that thrive and work for people of all ages.

Yesterday's announcement came during the AARP Massachusetts 2018 Volunteer Engagement Conference, where Governor Charlie Baker released the blueprint to make Massachusetts the most age-friendly state in the nation. The plan reinforces strategies that emerged from 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.

"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."
