We’re building sustainable communities by investing in what’s most important to Michigan – its people, our planet and Michigan’s prosperity.
Committed to Diversity
Consumers Energy has been giving back to Michigan for 135 years, and 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 2021 alone, the Consumers Energy Foundation, Consumers Energy and its employees and retirees contributed more than $17.5 million to Michigan nonprofits. This includes more than $8.5 million from the Consumers Energy Foundation. Foundation giving is separate from other company contributions and cannot be used to directly benefit the corporation. The Consumers Energy Foundation is funded by company donations, not included in customer rates.
