Robert Kraft and The Kraft Family Foundation give $50 million record gift to Massachusetts General Hospital


Patriots owner Robert Kraft and The Kraft Family Foundation have donated $50 million to Massachusetts General Hospital to address healthcare disparities and “help even more patients in need of our care.”

The $50 million gift is the largest in support of community health and health equity in the 211-year history of MGH.

The donation will support a permanent Robert K. Kraft Endowed Chair in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, addressing health disparities in clinical care at MGH. The gift will also further endow the Kraft Center for Community Health, first established in 2011 thanks to funding from the longtime benefactor.

“On behalf of the hospital, I would like to express our profound gratitude to the Kraft family for this transformative and inspirational act of philanthropy, which is not only the largest of its kind in our history, but also the latest highlight of their already lengthy history of support for MGH,” David Brown, president of MGH, said in a statement.

“We are committed to serving our communities and this incredibly generous gift positions MGH to help even more patients in need of our care,” Brown added.
