Lighthouse Group, a West Michigan- based insurance company, enthusiastically embraces the power of community action. Members of Lighthouse Group regularly volunteer time, sponsor events and raise money to benefit nonprofits throughout Michigan. One of Van Andel Institute’s (VAI) most dedicated and generous event sponsors, Lighthouse Group has contributed more than $100,000 to benefit the Institute’s biomedical research and science education initiatives.
Eve Rogus, vice president and principal of Lighthouse Group, is a passionate supporter of VAI’s mission to improve health for current and future generations. For more than six years, she has helped facilitate Lighthouse Group’s partnership with the Institute.
“We believe passionately that VAI will develop new therapies and cures for cancer and other diseases,” Rogus said. “We consider it a privilege to partner with VAI as it continues to forge ahead to achieve its goals.”
Supporting organizations like VAI comes naturally to Lighthouse Group. For 20 years, its mission statement has included a commitment to community involvement, reflecting its belief that well-placed philanthropy can change the world.
“Our support for the Institute is based on the notion that we can help scientists develop better and faster treatments for cancer and other diseases and make a difference locally at the same time,” Rogus said. “By contributing to the health sciences in West Michigan, we support job growth, the perpetuation of knowledge and the global integration of the Grand Rapids community.”
Thank you for your continued support, Lighthouse Group!
