MASSACHUSETTS: Victory Programs Receives $100K Grant for HIV/AIDS Programs (07.03.2013)

Recently, the Cummings Foundation chose Boston nonprofit Victory Programs as one of 100 local nonprofit organizations to receive $100,000 from the foundation’s new $100K for 100 program. Victory Programs serves individuals and families affected by homelessness, drug and alcohol addiction, mental illness, and chronic illnesses. The Cummings Foundation chose Victory Programs from among 370 applicants; Victory plans to use its grant to support the Boston Living Center, a community resource center for people with HIV/AIDS. The foundation selected local charities from areas where Cummings Properties manages buildings, to give back to the communities where the grant funds were raised. Some of the other recipients focus on education, healthcare, homelessness, and social justice.
