Background Element

We are thrilled to announce that Nurtury Early Education was one of 150 local nonprofits that will share in $30 million through Cummings Foundation’s major annual grants program. We were selected from a total of 630 applicants during a competitive review process and will receive $750,000 over 10 years.

The Cummings Foundation funding will enable Nurtury to invest in program development and educational quality while still making workforce compensation a budgetary priority, empowering us to expand access to equitable early education for all.

“We know that an investment in early education and care pays dividends in the long run, and this significant grant from the Cummings Foundation ensures we can continue to deliver high-quality education and care for families. One area this will positively impact is our ability to invest in our staff and allow us to attract and retain educators who are the lifeblood of our organization.”  

~Laura Perille, Nurtury President & CEO

We are so grateful to the Cummings Foundation and its wonderful volunteers for this grant which will allow us to continue expanding access to equitable early education for more children and families!
