Special thanks to the Cummings Foundation. We are thrilled to have been selected to receive a “Sustaining Grant” from the Cummings Foundation. The grant is for $25,000 per year for 10 years. The grant period began in 2018. The “Sustaining Grant” was awarded after we received a grant through the “$100K for 100” program. We are enormously grateful to the Cummings Foundation for its generosity.

The Woburn based Cummings Foundation, Inc. was established in 1986 by Joyce and Bill Cummings.  With assets exceeding $1 billion, it is one of the largest grant making foundations in New England.
