A conversation with one of the largest foundations in New England
Narrated by Greg Cunningham
JULY 2021 PODCAST – This month’s podcast features a conversation with Heidi Heinlein, grants manager at the Cummings Foundation, one of the leading foundations in the Boston area and the state, along with JFY Executive Director Gary Kaplan and Deputy Director Paula Paris. The Cummings Foundation was founded by Joyce and Bill Cummings of Winchester in 1986. Bill and Joyce provided the foundation’s financial base with the resources of their commercial real estate company, Cummings Properties LLC. Over the years, they have donated the majority of their commercial property revenue to the Foundation. Today, nearly all of Cumming’s properties are operated for the sole benefit of the Foundation, now one of the largest in New England. JFYNetWorks has been a grateful beneficiary of Cummings’s generosity since 2018.
