The strong majority of all real estate managed by Cummings Properties in Woburn, but not including TradeCenter 128, is beneficially owned by and is operated for the benefit of Cummings Foundation, Inc. (CFI). The Cummings family has also donated all of the Company's land and buildings in Burlington, Marlborough, Medford, Somerville, Stoneham, Sudbury, Wakefield, and Wilmington, Massachusetts to the Foundation.
CFI invested $6.3 million in creating Woburn's not-for-profit New Horizons at Choate assisted living community in 1989, as its largest single Woburn investment. It has since contributed millions of dollars locally to organizations including the Woburn Boys and Girls Club, Woburn Historical Society, VNA Hospice Care, Inc., Supportive Living, Inc., Woburn Council of Social Concern, and the Woburn YMCA, as well as dozens of other Woburn charities.
Beyond Woburn, the organization invested more than $10 million to create and expand the New Horizons in Marlborough assisted living community. It contributed more than $1 million to build a new YMCA teen center in Beverly to honor its late executive vice president, Douglas Stephens. More than $400,000 in scholarship funds to Woburn High School students alone have honored the memory of Cummings' late president, James L. McKeown. And much further afield, it has committed more than $1 million to special projects in Rwanda.
The Foundation has already donated, or has firmly committed to, grants totaling more than $38 million in 2014. The large majority of these funds are going to nonprofit entities in northeastern Massachusetts, specifically in Middlesex, Essex, and Suffolk counties. A full $15 million, however, has been committed to support the work of Dr. Paul Farmer and his Partners In Health organization in Boston.
Cummings Properties has always striven to be an inclusive company where differences of all sorts have been valued, and where those differences are utilized for the benefit of the Company and its entire Staff of committed colleagues.
After earlier endowing the Cummings Family Chair in Business Entrepreneurship at Tufts University, CFI entered a very unique relationship with Tufts in 2004 through CFI's newest operating subsidiary, Veterinary School at Tufts, LLC (VST). Through VST, the Foundation has committed a minimum of $50 million in financial assistance to the very prestigious Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University. The first veterinarians to enter the School after its renaming, graduated in May 2009.
