New Horizons at Marlborough Grantees

Proud to Give Back to Our Community

Horn Pond

New Horizons at Marlborough is a not-for-profit retirement community that is owned by Cummings Foundation. One of the largest private foundations in New England, the Foundation strives to give back in the areas where it owns commercial buildings, all of which are managed on a pro bono basis by its for-profit affiliate, Cummings Properties.

Supporting Local Communities

To date, the Cummings organization has gifted $500 million to local nonprofits throughout greater Boston, with the majority of its efforts focusing on organizations in Essex, Middlesex, and Suffolk counties.

Cummings Foundation Grant Beneficiaries

Foundation grantees enrich the communities around them by providing a diverse array of services, including healthcare, advocacy programs, education, affordable housing, violence prevention, and so many more. As the Marlborough community is of such great importance to New Horizons, the Foundation considers the city a high-priority area for grant-making and has awarded more than $3 million to Marlborough-based nonprofits in recent years. Neighboring communities from which many New Horizons at Marlborough residents hail have also received substantial funding.  The organizations below have been granted at least $100,000 each:
