JETT is a giving circle for Associate-Owners of Jasper Engines & Transmissions, and their families, that focuses on pooling resources and creating a greater combined impact on our communities. The goal is to learn more about philanthropic opportunities and support organizations that promote smart giving. More than 500 volunteer hours were donated by JETT members this year.
Each year a portion of member donations goes to building the JETT endowment, which currently totals over $200,000. JETT membership has steadily increased from 29 members in 2013 to 122 in 2018.
