JASPER — Jasper Endows Today & Tomorrow presented seven 2020 grants totaling $27,500.00 in December to local and national nonprofit organizations.
These organizations included: Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County ($4,000); Strings ($2,500); Community CHEW ($1,000); H.U.G.S. Ranch ($6,000); Hands of the Carpenter ($5,000); Thin Blue Line of Michigan ($5,000); and Pregnancy Care Center of Washington, Indiana ($4,000).
JETT has awarded 52 grants since its inception in 2013, totaling $194,066.00.
“All of these charitable gifts would not be possible without the matching partnership of JASPER and our generous membership,” added JETT Founder Mark Balsmeyer. “Couple that with several member-driven fundraising events, and we are blessed to be able to support our community’s non-profit organizations.”
JETT is a giving circle for Associate-Owners of Jasper Engines & Transmissions, and their families, that focuses on pooling resources, creating a greater combined impact on our communities. Their goal is to learn more about philanthropic opportunities and support those organizations that promote smart giving.
Each year, a portion of member donations builds the JETT endowment, which currently totals over $250,000.00. JETT membership has steadily increased from 29 members in 2013 to 235 in 2020.
