Through the Walter J. McCarthy Volunteer Leadership Grant Program, the DTE Energy Foundation awards up to $1,000 on behalf of its employees and retirees who volunteer personal time with eligible nonprofit organizations in Michigan.

Most awards will be made in the amount of $500. However, if the employee/retiree has taken on fiscal and fiduciary responsibilities as a member of the organization’s Board, they are eligible to receive a larger grant of $1,000.

Retirees must volunteer a minimum of 80 hours per year at an eligible nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Each retiree is eligible for one individual grant award per calendar year.
