Corning Incorporated Foundation makes hundreds of direct cash grants each year. Three categories – education, human services, and culture – are the focus of these grants.
The majority of grants go to community-based programs where Corning has a strong presence. Typically, this means the program should impact people within an approximate 20-mile radius of a Corning business location with at least 50 employees. The Foundation also makes direct grants on a case by case basis to national or international organizations in times of widespread natural disaster or other emergencies.
Grant applications from non-profit organizations outside the company headquarters location of Corning, NY are initially reviewed by a team of local employees. The employee team recommendation factors into the Foundation’s final decision.
Organizations interested in applying for a Corning Incorporated Foundation grant must validate that their program aligns with the Foundation’s vision in its three direct-grant theme areas: education, human services, and culture (as illustrated in the framework on the Themes page). All applicants must comply with Corning Incorporated Foundation’s non-discrimination policy.
