Spring 2019 Opening Session 
Wednesday, March 27, 2019 from 2pm - 4pm

Keynote: Bill Cummings
Starting Small and Making It Big:  An Entrepreneurs Journey to Billion-Dollar Philanthropist

Bill Cummings became a serial entrepreneur in earnest, and then a philanthropist, after first working all over the country with two national consumer-products firms. In 1964, he spent $4,000 to purchase his first real business, a hundred-year-old manufacturer of fruit-juice-beverage bases, which he quickly expanded by providing refrigerated dispensers and drinks to several hundred colleges and universities. With the million-dollar proceeds from the sale of that business in 1970, he founded a suburban-Boston commercial real estate firm.  Cummings Properties quickly grew from one small building to a portfolio of more than 100 modern buildings today. Along the way, he accumulated uncommon wealth, much of which he and his wife, Joyce, have been actively disbursing through Cummings Foundation, which they established together in 1986.  Bill and Joyce were the first Massachusetts couple to join the Giving Pledge, an international philanthropic organization founded by Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffet.
