Service & Giving

Driven by the mission of the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation and the passion of our employees, Harvard Pilgrim has a long tradition of supporting organizations and causes in the cities, towns and neighborhoods we serve. Community health centers, youth development programs, human service organizations, schools, shelters, prevention programs — the list is long and varied.

Watch the video on how our employees and nonprofit partners are working together to build healthy communities.

Giving and Service: Mission Driven & Employee Led
In 2014, 98% of Harvard Pilgrim employees participated in at least one form of service or giving:
  • Service Projects: Wearing distinctive red t-shirts, employees can participate in one Foundation-sponsored service event each year. [more]

  • Mini-Grant Program: To honor Harvard Pilgrim members who lost their lives on September 11th, the Foundation provides employees the opportunity to direct a $500 grant to a non-profit organization of their choice. In 2014, more than $550,000 was distributed in over 700 communities throughout Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. [more]

  • Community Spirit Awards: Each year, the Foundation recognizes the service and giving of colleagues and community partners. Nominated by our employees, recipients share a deep commitment to giving, and their service reflects Harvard Pilgrim's commitment to being a good corporate citizen. [more]

  • Employee Fund Raising Campaign: The Foundation’s annual campaign supports employee-chosen health and human service agencies throughout New England. In 2014, more than $50,000 was raised through this campaign. [more]
