JETT has awarded 94 grants since its inception in 2013, totaling $328,402.50. “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.”
“In the ten years since our founding, JETT not only has partnered with local organizations, but we have also grown to partner with national associations and non-profit affiliations that are local to our sister companies, like WELLER®,” said JETT Board Member Phalong Zehr. “In addition, other non-profit organizations like Mentors for Youth, Dubois County Community CHEW, and Strings, Inc. have been able to create their own endowments through JETT, which allows them to be more self-sustaining.”
JETT is a giving circle for Associate-Owners of Jasper Engines and Transmissions and their families that focuses on pooling resources and creating a more significant combined impact on communities. They aim to learn more about philanthropic opportunities and support those organizations that promote intelligent giving.
Each year, a portion of member donations builds the JETT endowment, totaling over $332,500.00. JETT membership has steadily increased from 29 members in 2013 to 257 in 2023.
