The Cummins Foundation
Created in 1954, the Cummins Foundation is one of the world’s earliest corporate foundations. As the company’s global giving mechanism, the Foundation provides grants in communities where Cummins employees work and live.
The Cummins Foundation supports employees’ Corporate Responsibility work through:
Community Developments Grants: financial support for projects and partners, developed and submitted by Cummins’ Community Involvement Teams.
Matching Grants: For every dollar Cummins’ North American employees give to local, inclusive nonprofits of their choosing, the Cummins Foundation matches that contribution with a donation to the United Way.
Architecture Grants: To ensure a vibrant and economically viable headquarters community in Columbus, Indiana, the Cummins Foundation provides support for qualifying architectural projects.
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.
If it is determined some type of benefit or recognition may provide value to the company, the Cummins Foundation will not be engaged in the project.

In 1996, the Associacion Filantropica Cummins (AFIC) was constituted, with the aim of improving Mexico's living conditions in the community, using the talents of Cummins volunteers serving it. AFIC invests in projects and programs with community partners that meet the requirements of national or international certification of civil nonprofit organizations.
Cummins’ Corporate Responsibility team provides services to the company’s global leaders and employees as they engage in their communities. In addition to the corporate team, Corporate Responsibility leaders around the world provide similar support to the company’s Area Business Organizations (ABOs) and regions. Their contributions to Corporate Responsibility help drive greater engagement, direction and impact in Cummins’ global communities.
