Below are other ways the Foundation plays a vital role in helping statewide nonprofits.
The DTE Energy Foundation offers a Community Giving grant program aimed at supporting grassroots organizations in areas of Michigan where DTE has a business presence. The Community Giving grant program is focused on funding organizations that bring communities together and drive economic activity.
Community grant applications are accepted by invitation-only. We are executing a strategy informed by critical community needs. Eligible and aligned organizations will receive personal and direct requests to apply. We do not accept unsolicited letters of inquiry or proposal. To seek out grantees, program staff will actively engage with a wide range of organizations, community groups and other foundations: monitor ongoing and emerging strategies: and invite proposals from potential grantees based on priorities set by the DTE Foundation’s Board of Directors.
