We want our involvement with our Charity Partners to be more than simply providing funds. We want to help spur engagement between the charitable organization and the communities we serve.
Kalamazoo, MI (PRWEB) January 13, 2015
Lake Michigan Mailers announced today that it has selected its Charity Partners for 2015. Formally introduced by Lake Michigan Mailers in 2010, the Charity Partners Program provides for charitable giving to a select group of worthy causes and provides each charitable organization with meaningful, structured funding and cross-marketing support through the company’s community engagement network throughout the entire year. While Lake Michigan Mailers donates and contributes to a wide spectrum of worthy causes, favor tends to be given to organizations and events that support the following categories:
- Cancer Awareness and Research
- Feeding, Clothing, and Sheltering the Poor
- Mentoring or Educating Youth on Entrepreneurialism
- Issues and Advocacy Related to the Wellbeing of Children
- Small Business Issues, Small Business Advocacy, Public Policy Issues Related to Businesses Serviced by Lake Michigan Mailers
Charity Partner selection is based on a written application and supporting documentation from the charitable organizations, and is open to registered charities throughout the United States. Applications are then carefully reviewed by the Rhoa family, founders and owners of Lake Michigan Mailers.
The Lake Michigan Mailers Charity Partners for 2015 include:
- Breast Cancer Charities of Notre Dame Athletics

“Since our inception in 1977, we have dedicated ourselves to building the communities in which we serve through planned giving to a number of worthy causes,” said David C. Rhoa, president of Lake Michigan Mailers, Inc. “Our Charity Partners Program allows us to make a systematic and prudent review of all applications. We want our involvement with our Charity Partners to be more than simply providing funds. We want to help spur engagement between the charitable organization and the communities we serve. We want to assist them in telling their story to a wider audience and provide additional value through meaningful engagement,” Rhoa concluded.
