In appreciation of our valued relationships with long-term clients, Cummings Properties began a new initiative, Client Directed Giving, in 2018. Cummings Properties will contribute $1,000 annually to a local charity of each qualified 20+ year client. This unique program is one of the many ways that "Cummings Buildings Power Charities." Through Client Directed Giving, the Company seeks to honor the commitment of its long-term clients and give back to the towns and cities that support its business operations.

How do I know if my client firm is eligible to participate?

If you believe your firm is eligible, but you did not receive an email notification, please contact Christina Berthelsen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 781-569-2337.
How do I know the organization I select is a 501(c)(3)?
To determine whether your selected organization is classified as a 501(c)(3) organization, use Charity Navigator. Simply type the organization’s name in the search bar, and verify that it is listed as IRS Subsection: 501(c)(3). Please contact Christina Berthelsen at email@example.com or 781-569-2337 with any questions.
Does my firm need to make a donation, too?

Can my donation go toward a nonprofit membership or tickets for a nonprofit event?
No. While we hope CDG will encourage involvement with local nonprofits, clients are prohibited by law from accepting any tangible benefits in return for this donation, such as memberships, gifts, event tickets, tuition credits, etc.
