Cummings Properties is delighted to honor colleagues, long-term clients and vendors, volunteers, and other select associates of the Cummings organization by contributing a donation to a nonprofit of their choice. This unique initiative is one of the many ways that “Cummings Buildings Power Charities.”
Through Cummings Community Giving (CCG), our company seeks to support nonprofits that are meaningful to our valued associates. In recent years, this program has resulted in more than $700,000 in donations annually.

To continue operating CCG at a large scale, we have had to streamline our processes, including eliminating paper checks. Bill.com is a free and secure service already used by many organizations; for first-time users, registration is simple.
For many nonprofits, it will ultimately be more convenient. No more waiting for the letter carrier or for your turn at the bank!
