Japanese Language School in Arlington receives $500 grant from Harvard Pilgrim foundation

donate

Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation has announced that the Japanese Language School of Greater Boston Inc. in Arlington was awarded $500 from the foundation's Community Spirit 9/11 Mini-Grant program.

The funds will provide students with new computers to assist in language learning.

Daniel Glushkov, an employee of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, nominated the organization for the award.

To commemorate those Harvard Pilgrim members who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001, Harvard Pilgrim and the foundation created the 9/11 grant program. This allows each Harvard Pilgrim employee to award a $500 grant, completely funded by the foundation, to the local charity of his or her choice each calendar year.

Since this community grants program began in 2002, Harvard Pilgrim employees have directed more than $5.2 million to thousands of organizations throughout Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

"We are so fortunate to have generous and dedicated employees who enrich our company and the communities in which we all live and work," said Karen Voci, president of the Harvard Pilgrim Foundation, in a Jan. 24 news release. "The minigrant program is a wonderful way to support our employees as philanthropists and to help them make an impact in their own cities and towns."

In 2016, more than 96 percent of Harvard Pilgrim employees participated in at least one form of service or giving through volunteering, the minigrants program, or Harvard Pilgrim's annual employee fund-raising campaign.

Created in 1980, The Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation supports Harvard Pilgrim's mission to improve the quality and value of health care for the people and communities we serve by providing the tools, training and leadership to help build healthy communities throughout New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine and Connecticut. Since its inception, the foundation has distributed more than $140 million in funds. In 2016, the Harvard Pilgrim Foundation awarded more than $2.4 million in grants to nearly 900 nonprofit organizations within the four states.
