Major Contributer - The Corning Foundation
Throughout its history, Corning Incorporated Foundation has been driven by making a positive impact on communities where its people work and live.
The best possible impact: Supporting and enhancing vibrant, engaging Corning communities.
A vibrant community has engaged citizens; thriving businesses; robust education opportunities; and ample cultural outlets. Citizens of a vibrant community have a sense of belonging and empathy for others. Visitors can feel the pride and optimism when they are in the community.
A deep and thoughtful study that concluded in 2017 helped the Foundation take a fresh look at its communities, their assets and challenges, and ways that non-profit programs could foster the aspects that make them vibrant in today’s world.
A comprehensive process led to the creation of a strategic framework that now guides the Foundation’s grant programs and ensures clarity of its mission: A focus on education, human services, culture, and volunteerism.
Note from Editor: The Corning Foundation sponsors SGS by providing not only grant oppourtunities but monies through the Dollars for Doers program. Many members of SGS and NNF are Corning Inc. employees and this program provides a grant for every hour a corning employee donates time to a registered non-profit such as SGS. This is a major source of funding for SGS and allows for us to put on the Native Nations Festival as well as provide the free educational oppurtunites that we do. Thank you Corning Foundation!
