Jasper Presents Grants to Non-Profits

December 18, 2017 - Press Release

Jasper Endows Today & Tomorrow (JETT) hosted a “Will Read & Sing for Food”  event December 2 at the company’s Power Drive facility in Jasper, Ind.

JETT took this opportunity to present eight 2017 grants totaling $28,830.00 to local and national non-profit organizations.  These organizations included:

  • Boys & Girls Club of Crawford/Harrison counties: $10,000
  • Survivors of Suicide: $7,355
  • Anderson Woods: $4,000
  • Mentors for Youth: $3,000
  • South Baltimore Learning Center: $2,000
  • Metal Mission (Denver): $1,000
  • CASA: $1,000
  • Freedom Reigns: $475

As a bonus to the wonderful entertainment provided that evening, JETT raised another $18,000 during 2017 to go towards the organization’s 2018 grants.

JETT is a giving circle for Jasper Engines & Transmission Associates and their families that focuses on pooling resources to have a greater combined impact on our communities.  Our goal is to learn more about philanthropic opportunities and support those organizations that promote smart giving.  Over 500 volunteer hours were also donated by JETT members this year. 

Each year a portion of member donations goes to building the JETT endowment, which currently totals more than $160,000.  JETT membership has steadily increased from 29 members in 2013 to 120 in 2017.
