The Cummings Foundation Awards MVIEC a $100,000 Grant
MVIEC is one of the 100 local nonprofits to receive grants of $100,000 each from the Cummings Foundation through their "100K for 100" program. We will use the grant to provide low-income immigrants with ESOL and Workplace Education classes to support them in their quest to be gainfully employed and achieve citizenship status.


Executive Director, Judy Chmielecki, and Program Coordinator, Karen Sheridan, exclaim, “We are thrilled to be a recipient of the Cummings Foundation’s $100 K for 100."
