Maria L. Baldwin Community Center Awarded $75,000 Cummings Grant
Cambridge nonprofit receives 3 years of funding from Cummings Foundation

CAMBRIDGE, May 29, 2024 – We are thrilled to announce that the Maria L. Baldwin Community Center (MLBCC) is one of 150 local nonprofits that will share in $30 million through Cummings Foundation’s major annual grants program. The community center was selected from a total of 715 applicants in a highly competitive review process. It will receive $75,000 over three years.

“On behalf of the MLBCC Board, we deeply appreciate this recognition and support.  The Cummings grant enables our organization to fulfill its mission more fully, as an afterschool, arts education and summer camp program, to address the complex needs of children and families by providing social work services, as well as educational and recreational activities,” said Andrea Walsh, Board Chair.

“The grant funding will help us lessen the impact of poverty on the most vulnerable children and families we serve through the support of a permanent, full time social worker on staff – Silvia Cote,” said Maria LapPage, Co-Executive Director.
