Reviewer 4846 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2021

Although we had a very positive partnership for seven years, they have changed their funding guidelines. Although our request was for Program Funding, they are only willing to fund "equipment" or stuff, they will not fund salaries, rent. They would prefer to pick a line item on a Program Budget and only fund certain items.

Reviewer 870 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2018

Even though it states on their 990 that they accept unsolicited requests, I received the following response to a submitted request: "The Cummins Foundation funds projects in which our employees are significantly engaged and that fall within our priority areas of Education, Equality of Opportunity and Environment. We do not consider unsolicited grant requests. Instead, grant requests are submitted to the Foundation by our employee teams to support their work."
