Jackson Young Professionals Endowment Fund Grants

The fund was created with collaborative grants from the Consumers Energy Endowment Fund, the Asset Map Special Project Fund and the President’s Discretionary Fund, all component funds of the Foundation. 


The Jackson Young Professionals grew out of the Anchor Initiative, a program that supports living, buying and innovating in downtown Jackson.  The group was established to promote social & career development as well as encourage community outreach and volunteerism.
