Once Again, Numerous Mass. Nonprofits Get $100K Each

June 8, 2017 — Ninety-six Massachusetts nonprofits recently were awarded $100,000 each by the Cummings Foundation, the seventh year that the Woburn-based foundation has distributed the no-strings attached grants.

The grantees, based in and primarily serving Middlesex, Essex, and Suffolk counties, were chosen from a record-setting 597 applicants during a competitive review process in connection with the foundation's $100K for 100 program. Four additional grants were made to governmental organizations.

“Nonprofit organizations are vital to the local communities where our colleagues and clients live and work,” said Joel Swets, executive director of the Cummings Foundation. “We are delighted to invest in their efforts.”
