Massachusetts General Hospital Receives Record Gift from Kraft Family

Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), a founding member of Mass General Brigham, has received a revolutionary gift of $50 million from Robert K. Kraft and The Kraft Family Foundation to address healthcare disparities caused by race, ethnicity, geography, and economic status. The gift is the largest in support of community health and health equity in the history of MGH and more than doubles the previous commitments of the Kraft family to ensuring the highest quality equitable health care is available in all the communities served by the MGH.

The gift will also further endow the Kraft Center for Community Health, first established in 2011 thanks to funding from the longtime benefactor. Its mission to catalyze innovative solutions to frontline community health problems, execute solutions locally, and make them scalable to improve health outcomes for disadvantaged populations in Massachusetts – as well as nationally – will continue to change the healthcare landscape with Kraft’s latest gift.

“The Kraft family has a proud history of transformative philanthropy. This amazing gift will have a profound impact on improving community health, access, & equity, and we at The Kraft Center are so honored to be a part of this incredible legacy.” – Dr. Elsie Taveras, Executive Director of The Kraft Center for Community Health.
