Natick, June 16, 2016 - Natick Service Council is one of 100 local nonprofits to receive grants of $100,000 each through Cummings Foundation's "$100K for 100" program. The Natick-based organization was chosen from a total of 479 applicants, during a competitive review process and will receive $25,000 a year for the next 4 years.
The Cummings Foundation aims to give back in the area where it owns commercial buildings, all of which are managed, at no cost to the Foundation, by its affiliate Cummings Properties. Founded in 1970 by Bill Cummings of Winchester, the Woburn-based commercial real estate firm leases and manages more than 10 million square feet of space, the majority of which exclusively benefits the Foundation."We admire and very much appreciate the important work that nonprofit organizations like Natick Service Council are doing in the local communities where our colleagues and clients live and work," said Joel Swets, Cummings Foundation's executive director. "We are delighted to support their efforts."This year's diverse group of grant recipients represents a wide variety of causes, including education, homelessness prevention, elder services, healthcare, and food insecurity. Most of the grants will be paid over two to five years.Information on the Cummings Foundation and on the grant winners is available at www.CummingsFoundation.org.
