CARING FOR THE MICHIGAN

COMMUNITIES WE SERVE.

THAT’S OUR PROMISE.

At

Consumers Energy, our promise to

Michigan is to provide safe, reliable and affordable energy service. Another big part of our promise is to help our neighbors in need and strengthen our communities.

In 2012, Michigan nonprofit organizations received

$10 million in contributions from CMS Energy and

Consumers Energy, our employees and retirees.

• United Way was the largest single recipient with $1.7 million contributed to 56 local United Way organizations

• Our most vulnerable customers will benefit from $5 million in emergency energy assistance provided to The Heat and

Warmth Fund (THAW), The Salvation Army and True

North Community Services

• 10 Michigan communities each received $125,000 for a total of $1.25 million to support projects and recognize the company’s 125-year anniversary
