Land, Water & Air

The Consumers Energy Foundation is dedicated to ensuring Michigan has world-class natural resources. Our freshwater lakes and streams demand great care along with the health and viability of our land and air. We’re committed to supporting nonprofit organizations who strengthen environmental stewardship, preserve the natural beauty of Michigan and reduce environmental impact when natural resources are used.

Environmental Education

Our grants support environmental education and developing environmental stewards who will sustain Michigan’s natural resources for future generations to enjoy. Some of our more recent grant recipients include Huron Pines Resource Conservation and Development Council and Friends of the Shiawassee River.

Preservation & Usage

The Consumers Energy Foundation supports organizations that protect and preserve Michigan’s natural resources, with an emphasis on collaborative programs that strengthen ties between businesses and communities.
