JETT is a giving circle for Associate-Owners of Jasper Engines and Transmissions, and their families that focus on pooling resources creating a greater combined impact on our communities.
Their goal is to learn more about philanthropic opportunities and support organizations that promote smart giving.
Each year, a portion of member donations builds the JETT endowment, which currently totals over $250,000.
JETT membership has steadily increased from 29 members in 2013 to 235 in 2020.
