Cummings Properties Foundation (CPFI) was founded by Joyce and Bill Cummings of Winchester, Massachusetts in 1986 as a Massachusetts trust. It was originally organized expressly to "give back" to the communities in which Cummings Properties does business, and from which most of its employees came. It continues to provide ongoing support to hundreds of local causes.
