We are also very excited to announce that renowned business leader, author and philanthropist, Mr. Bill Cummings, will be the guest speaker at this year’s Irish Heart’s Benefit Dance!
Born during America’s Great Depression, Bill Cummings grew up poor, but through a series of highly successful business ventures, became one of the wealthiest individuals in Massachusetts and, more importantly, one of the most prolific philanthropists in the state’s history. He founded suburban-Boston commercial real estate firm Cummings Properties in 1970, and grew it from one small building to a portfolio of more than 10 million square feet. Along the way, he accumulated uncommon wealth, much of which he and his wife, Joyce, have begun actively disbursing through Cummings Foundation.
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 Buffett. They have been honored to receive dozens of community accolades, from organizations as varied as American Red Cross, Archdiocese of Boston, Boston Business Journal, and NAIOP, the association for the commercial real estate development industry. They have both received several honorary doctoral degrees and have four times served as college commencement speakers.
In 2018, Bill released his self-written memoir, Starting Small and Making It Big: An Entrepreneur’s Journey to Billion-Dollar Philanthropist, which includes thoughtful reflections on the lessons he has learned about business, entrepreneurship, and philanthropy.
