We’re building sustainable communities by investing in what’s most important to Michigan – its people, our planet and Michigan’s prosperity.
Consumers Energy has been giving back to Michigan since we were founded over 130 years ago. Since 1990 we have been helping local communities grow and thrive through the Consumers Energy Foundation. We invest in three key areas crucial to all of us in the Great Lakes State– our people, our planet and our prosperity. We provide grants and mobilize volunteers to create a positive impact – in 2019 alone, the Consumers Energy Foundation, Consumers Energy and its employees and retirees contributed more than $11.5 million to Michigan nonprofits. We do it all without using funds generated from our customers. Instead, we use shareholder funds, along with contributions from current employees and retirees.
Now more than ever, the safety and health of Michigan’s people and communities remains our top priority. We are committed to assisting our neighbors in need. Since March, we have provided more than $4.8 million to Michigan’s nonprofits to care for our communities during the pandemic.
Working together, we can make a positive impact on Michigan. We are currently accepting applications from nonprofits supporting Michigan’s small businesses and our low-income customers, neighbors and friends including Michigan’s children, vulnerable seniors and those who may need help with food and other critical needs.
