About Us

Established in 1952 to administer the charitable contributions of its sponsoring company, Corning Incorporated Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life in communities where Corning Incorporated is an active corporate citizen.

Grants from Corning Incorporated Foundation to local organizations and to selected national institutions support programs and projects in the sectors of education, arts and culture, and health and human services and, on a case-by-case basis, disaster relief.

To positively affect the greatest number of people over the longest period of time, the Foundation follows a strategy of shared social responsibility with other "investors," focusing on projects that demonstrate broad appeal and strong local support.
