Proud Recipients of the Cummings Foundation’s ‘$100K for 100’ program
Volunteers of America Massachusetts is proud to be one of 100 local nonprofits to receive grants of $100,000 each through the Cummings Foundation’s “100K for 100” program, chosen from a total of 479 applicants during a competitive review process.
These funds support graduates of the Women’s Hello House, a residential treatment program for addiction recovery. The program provides gender-specific, trauma-informed care to women who are beginning their journey towards living a sober lifestyle. Thanks to the Cummings Foundation grant, graduates receive robust aftercare services to prevent relapse as they transition back into the community.
The $100K for 100 program supports nonprofits that are not only based in but also primarily serve Middlesex, Essex, and Suffolk counties.
In 2016, the program benefited 41 different cities and towns within the Commonwealth. Through this place-based initiative, Cummings Foundation gave 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.
