The Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham & Wakefield is one of 100 local nonprofits to receive grants of $100,000.00 each through Cummings Foundation’s “$100k for 100” program. Our Clubs were chosen from a total of 574 applicants during a competitive review process.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Stoneham & Wakefield Executive Director Adam Rodgers commented; “The Cummings Foundation has a history of transformative gifts to many local non-profits. Their name has become synonymous with charitable giving. We are honored and humbled that they decided to choose us as a grant recipient this year. With this investment we will be able to serve even more youth and build the Clubs our communities deserve.”
“By having such a local focus, we aim to make a meaningful positive difference in the communities where our colleagues and leasing clients live and work,” said Derek Russell, Vice President of Operations at Cummings Properties. “We are most grateful for the nonprofit organizations that assist and empower our neighbors, and we are proud to support their efforts.”

The $100k for 100 program supports nonprofits that are based in and primarily serve Middlesex, Essex, and Suffolk counties. Through this place-based initiative, Cummings Foundation aims to give back in the area where it owns commercial buildings, all of which are managed, at no cost to the Foundation, by its affiliate Cummings Properties. Founded in 1970 by Bill Cummings, the Woburn-based commercial real estate firm leases and manages 10 million square feet of space, the majority of which exclusively benefits the Foundation.
The history behind Cummings Properties and Cummings Foundation is detailed in Bill Cummings’ self-written memoir, “Starting Small and Making It Big: An Entrepreneur’s Journey to Billion-Dollar Philanthropist.” It is available on Amazon on cummings.com/book.
