Foundation

The Foundation for a Sustainable Michigan

The Consumers Energy Foundation has been caring for Michigan communities for decades. Our grants have helped fight poverty, build parks and encourage kids to pursue critical job skills and higher education. We’ve helped restore endangered wildlife, protect fragile habitats and preserve cultural assets, like museums, zoos and libraries. Our Foundation touches every one of the communities we serve. Last year, Consumers Energy, its employees, retirees, Foundation and parent company, CMS Energy contributed over $6.5 million to Michigan’s nonprofits. Our core focus areas are:

  • Social welfare
  • Community, civic and cultural development
  • Education
  • Environment

The common theme is sustainability. The Consumers Energy Foundation plays an important role in our company’s plan to create a sustainable, bright future for centuries to come.
