We’re building sustainable communities by supporting education, social services, arts and culture, business and the environment.
Let's Build a Stronger Michigan. Together.
You depend on us for safe, reliable energy to power your home and community. That’s our job, 24/7. But energy quality is only one part of what makes your community great. The Consumers Energy Foundation gives Michigan cities, towns and neighborhoods the extra support needed to build communities that we’re proud to call home. We provide grants and mobilize volunteers to strengthen local education, social services, the environment, and community, economic and cultural development.
We created the Consumers Energy Foundation in 1990 to give our charitable efforts a stable, focused direction. The Consumers Energy Foundation does not use funds generated from our customers. Instead, we use shareholder funds, along with contributions from current employees and retirees to support nonprofit organizations across Michigan and help create sustainable communities.
Our Foundation has been working with nonprofits to create sustainable communities for decades. We make grants for social welfare, community, civic and cultural development, education, economic growth and environmental enhancement.
