Corning Incorporated Foundation gives grant to United Way of the Southern Tier

Corning Incorporated Foundation Board of Trustees has approved a grant to United Way of the Southern Tier of $535,000 in support of United Way’s 2018 Annual Giving Moment. 

These two organizations share strong alignment of priorities and a commitment to a vibrant and thriving community for all.

The Corning Incorporated Foundation is a charitable contributions organization established by Corning Incorporated in 1952. Through leadership and collaboration, the Foundation strives to foster vibrant, enriching, and supportive Corning communities. The Foundation focuses on education, human services, culture, and volunteerism in Corning business locations.

United Way of the Southern Tier’s Annual Giving Moment raises money through both workplace and residential campaigns to support programs in Chemung and Steuben counties in three focus areas: Southern Tier Kids on Track – promoting early childhood development, school readiness and success; Basic Needs Network – ensuring basic services such as food, clothing and shelter, and financial stability; and Senior Support Network – helping seniors age safely in place.
