Corning Incorporated Foundation
The Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the glass company, directs its financial resources almost exclusively toward initiatives that improve the quality of life in and near communities where the Company is an active corporate citizen. Funding areas of interest include education, arts and culture, community service, matching gifts, and national programs. Educational grants are targeted toward selected public K-12 school districts, community colleges, and four-year colleges. Grants have supported community service programs for students, curriculum enrichment, student scholarships, facility improvement, and instructional projects for the classroom. Arts and culture grants support arts organizations, libraries, museums, and public broadcasting facilities. Community service grants fund hospitals and hospices, community foundations, youth and women’s centers, YMCAs, local youth organizations, and selected United Ways. Matching gifts programs support specific nonprofits, such as colleges and universities. Grants for national programs are focused on organizations promoting understanding and good will.
