Partnering with 30 Massachusetts-Based Charity Programs, Definitive Healthcare Continues its Tradition of Giving Back to the Community
FRAMINGHAM, MA – December 19, 2018 – It may be the season of giving, but for local, Framingham healthcare data and analytics company Definitive Healthcare, it’s a year-round tradition. This year, thanks to the hard work and dedication of Definitive Healthcare employees, and through their partnerships with the local community, 30 Massachusetts-based charities received donations totaling $193,901 in 2018 – a combination of nearly 100K in financial donations and over 92K in man-hours.
The DefinitiveCares program – established in 2015 and run by Definitive Healthcare with the mission of giving back to the community through volunteer initiatives – has focused on providing assistance to the community through both commitments of time and effort, as well as financial contributions. These efforts help to foster a more supportive and generous environment both throughout Definitive Healthcare and the community at large.
“At Definitive Healthcare, not only do we want our employees to be the best and the brightest, but we also want individuals that share our culture and values. We are proud to have a 100% volunteer rate from our employees in both 2017 and 2018,” said Jason Krantz, CEO of Definitive Healthcare. “A key part of our culture is a focus on giving back to the community — we believe that we have a responsibility to use our energy, drive, and creativity to provide assistance to those in need and, in the end, it brings our team closer together too. DefinitiveCares was launched in order to create opportunities and structure for employees to be part of something larger than themselves.”
Just this year alone, DefinitiveCares has packaged over 40,608 meals for Rise Against Hunger, raised $60,000 for the Jimmy Fund, planted 2,800 bulbs for the Esplanade Association, donated $20,000 to Habitat for Humanity, meal-prepped for 300+ patients at the Boston Children’s Hospital, and worked to improve the lives of hundreds of children and low-income families by running company-organized Christmas and Mother’s Day Gift Drives – supporting over 85 families in need. Other DefinitiveCares partners include the Crossroads School which is dedicated to educating children and adults with Autism, Boston Food Bank, Reach Out and Read, Westborough Food Pantry, Cradles to Crayons, The Learning Center for the Deaf, Dana Farber, the Boston Healthcare for the Homeless program, and many others.
Krantz continued: “While I have been honored to build a successful growth business, it is the community and culture of giving I see every day that inspires me – especially at this time of year. This is a company that attracts and retains people who care about what they do and why they do it – at work and beyond. In both 2017 and 2018, Definitive Healthcare was ranked among The Boston Globe’s Top Ten Places to Work in Massachusetts and The Boston Business Journal’s Top Five Best Places to Work in Massachusetts, and it’s programs like this that make a difference.”
