JETT Presents Grants to Local/National
Non-Profit Organizations
Jasper Endows Today & Tomorrow (JETT) presented seven 2020 grants totaling $27,500.00 in December to local and national non-profit organizations. These organizations included:

H.U.G.S. Ranch ($6,000)
Hands of the Carpenter ($5,000)
Thin Blue Line of Michigan ($5,000)
Pregnancy Care Center of Washington, Indiana ($4,000)
Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County ($4,000)
Strings ($2,500)
Community CHEW ($1,000)

JETT has awarded 52 grants since its inception in 2013, totaling $194,066.00. “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.”

JETT is a giving circle for Associate-Owners of Jasper Engines & Transmissions, and their families, that
focuses on pooling resources, creating a greater combined impact on our communities. Their goal is to learn more
about philanthropic opportunities and support those organizations that promote smart giving.
Each year a portion of member donations builds the JETT endowment, which currently totals over
$250,000.00. JETT membership has steadily increased from 29 members in 2013 to 235 in 2020.
