Mystic Valley Elder Services Awarded $100,000 Grant

Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) was
recently awarded a $100,000 sustaining grant over a 4-year period through
Cummings’s Foundation “$100k for 100” program. The grant was awarded to MVES in
support of its Elder Independence Fund, a 21-year program that makes it
possible for low-income older adults or adults living with disabilities to
receive an urgently needed item or service that helps them remain independent
and for which there is no other resource or way to obtain the needed item or
service.

“This grant will be a tremendous help in
maintaining our Elder Independence Fund and we are truly grateful for the
Cummings Foundation’s support. Through their generous gift, this award will
make positive impacts on the lives of people in need,” said MVES CEO Daniel
O’Leary.

The $100k for 100 program supports
nonprofits that are based in and primarily serve Middlesex, Essex, and Suffolk
counties. Through this place-based initiative, Cummings aims to give back to
the communities where its commercial buildings are located, all of which are
managed at no cost to the Foundation, but its affiliate Cummings Property. MVES
was chosen from a total of 574 applicants during a competitive review process.

“By having such a local focus, we aim to
make a meaningful, positive difference in the communities where our colleagues
and leasing clients live and work,” said Joel Swets, Cummings Foundation’s
executive director. “We are grateful for the nonprofit organizations that
assist and empower our neighbors, and we are proud to support their
efforts.”

This year’s diverse group of recipients
represents a wide variety of causes. The complete list of 100 grant winners is
