DTE Energy Foundation Commitment
Energy is critical to our quality of life and economic progress. DTE Energy is relied upon 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days of the year to produce, acquire and deliver that energy, whether from traditional sources or from renewable and alternative technologies. That makes them, in a sense, a company that never sleeps.
At DTE Energy, they believe that they have a greater responsibility. They believe that being part of a community means being involved in the fabric of that community. It means investing time, effort and resources in the communities they serve. It means helping customers and communities to thrive. The DTE Energy Foundation, the charitable arm of DTE Energy, is integral to that mission.
They have a long tradition of generously matching employee gifts to worthwhile institutions and providing grants in honor of major employee volunteer actions. And their iemployees spend thousands of volunteer hours each year making a difference in the lives of others. When all is said and done, being involved in the fabric of the community means being involved with people. It all comes down to people - extending help when needed, giving of one's time, sharing one's knowledge.
