Charitable Contributions Policy

As a trusted supplier of building products for over 60 years across the country, we’re committed to giving back to the communities that have given us so much, placing particular emphasis on children and adults with special needs, homes and shelters, afterschool programs, ALS and cancer research, leadership, education and environmental conservation. 

We’re determined to live out our mission statement in every aspect of our work, embodying respect, service, and excellence not only with the products and services that we provide, but also through the lives that we touch in the communities we serve.

LF-Contribution-Policy ensures that all Lansing Foundation donations, sponsorships, company volunteer activities, and in-kind services are coordinated and aligned with our corporate social responsibility strategy and business goals, maximize opportunity for corporate visibility, foster long-term business relationships, and are within our budget and resource limitations. This policy eliminates duplication and establishes a central point of contact for internal and external requests. All expenditures for charitable donations, sponsorships, fundraising events, golf tournaments, etc. will be handled accordingly. All incoming requests for charitable contributions, sponsorships or in-kind services or support will be coordinated and administered by ­­­­­the Lansing Foundation Advisory Board. Individual employees may not respond to requests from individuals or organizations that have an actual or potential business relationship with our company. Incoming requests for sponsorships, charitable donations, in-kind services or business courtesies must be made in writing and forwarded to ­­­­­the Lansing Foundation Advisory Board for research, review, and final disposition. A member of the advisory board will communicate directly with agencies regarding all requests and coordinate any follow up documentation, and/or collateral activities such as ads, tickets, invitations, banners, etc.
