The Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation

  • In May 2018 we launched a $40,000 Opioid Misuse Prevention, Recovery and Treatment Grants program. Funded by our Foundation, the program will offer individual grants up to $10,000 to local nonprofit organizations in New Hampshire that serve residents dealing with opioid addiction.
  • The Foundation recently partnered with the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and donated $50,000 to their New Hampshire Tomorrow Fund, to assist local families affected by the opioid epidemic.
