Our Impact

When Corning Incorporated Foundation supports programs in the communities where the corporation has a presence, people feel the impact in a wide variety of ways:

  • The parents of a sick child can have fewer worries because the latest diagnostic equipment is available just a short drive from home.
  • A woman scarred by domestic violence can have new hope for the future through job-training and networking opportunities.
  • Young adults wanting to enter a promising career can get affordable, state-of-the-art training and the chance for lifelong opportunities in a high-tech field.
  • A child with no previous exposure to classical music can be captivated by the sounds of nature coming alive through woodwinds and brass.

These are only a few of the ways that Corning Incorporated Foundation has made a difference in its communities with more than $154 million in contributions since 1952.

Currently, the Foundation makes grants totaling more than $5 million in giving annually. The majority of investments target communities where Corning Incorporated employees live and work, but support is intended to benefit all residents and their families.

Education, culture, community, and health/human services are all included in the giving program – with a consistent approach of helping the most people over the longest period of time.
