Energy Provider Will Donate $1 for Every $2 Raised, Up to $100,000

Habitat for Humanity of Michigan and Consumers Energy have teamed once again to provide financial support to Habitat affiliates with a goal of raising $300,000 by the end of July via its “Power of Home” campaign.

Consumers Energy will donate $1 for every $2 raised through individual Habitat donations, up to $100,000. Habitat Detroit, the 2023 Habitat for Humanity of Michigan Affiliate of the Year, aims to maximize the match by encouraging individual donations and team fundraising. Funds raised during this time will help provide safe and stable housing and critical home repairs in Detroit.

In the past ten years (2013-2023) Power of Home (formerly Home Run for Habitat) campaigns have successfully raised nearly $2 million from over 4,900 public donors, bringing the total raised/matched to more than $3 million. Consumers Energy provided $1 million in matching funds for Habitat affiliates by its donation of $1 for every $2 raised through individual donations.

“Consumers Energy is committed to keeping the lights on for Michigan homes. That starts with helping our customers to live in safe, affordable homes that reduce energy waste and protect the planet,” said Lauren Snyder, Consumers Energy’s vice president of customer experience. “We’re excited to continue our partnership with Habitat Michigan and make an impact in communities we serve.”

In order to receive the Consumers Energy match, all donations must be made through the online giving platform Classy. To make a donation or get more information visit Habitat Detroit’s Classy page here.
