Nathan Cummings Foundation Commits Half-Billion Endowment to Mission-Aligned Investing

"Today we are announcing that, after a thoughtful process with our Board, staff and advisors, we will align 100 percent of our nearly half-billion dollar endowment with our mission. We think times like these require visionary thinking and bold action and we are committed to using all of our resources – our investments, our grants and our voice – to make a difference in the world. Joining a growing movement of philanthropic leadership on impact investing, we are one of the largest foundations to commit 100 percent."

"Rooted in the Jewish tradition of social justice, the Nathan Cummings Foundation is committed to creating a more just, vibrant, sustainable and democratic society. We are focused on finding solutions to the two most challenging problems of our time – the climate crisis and growing inequality. We’ve provided nearly $500 million in grants over the last 27 years to support social movements, organizations and individuals pursuing justice for people and the planet."
