Community Support: The Cummins Foundation

The Cummins Foundation

The Cummins Foundation was created in 1954, 35 years after Cummins was founded. It was one of the earliest corporate foundations and serves as the company's charitable giving organization. It provides grants around the world to nonprofit partners to support communities in which our employees live and work. The Cummins Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization that operates independently of Cummins Inc.

The Cummins Foundation supports employees’ Corporate Responsibility work primarily through Community Development Grants (CDG), which provide financial support for projects and partners, developed and submitted by Community Involvement Teams (CITs).

CDG requests, in collaboration with community partners, allow employees to learn more about their communities, use their business skills to build the capacity of an organization and create a deeper understanding of critical community needs. CDGs also ensure the Foundation's resources are used to deliver the greatest impact around the world.

The Cummins Foundation funds 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations or equivalent charitable international organizations and governmental agencies. The Cummins Foundation does not fund medical or disease-related organizations; capital campaigns; individuals’ or business start-ups; product donations; religious activities, in whole or in part, for the purpose of furthering religious doctrine (faith-based organizations must provide service to all clients regardless of denomination); or projects or services that could be considered to benefit the company.
