Become a Corporate Partner

Thanks to special programs with our corporate partners, we are funding more groundbreaking research at Van Andel Institute than ever before. Each corporate partner engages with Van Andel Institute Purple Community in a unique way that inspires their customers, employees and communities. Experienced Purple Community staff work with you to start and support you to ensure success for all involved.

How To Get Involved

We have numerous exclusive VAI Purple Community events throughout the year that your company may choose to sponsor. If you would like to learn more about how you can support these events, email PurpleCommunity@vai.org.

In addition to our VAI Purple Community events that you could sponsor, many organizations choose to engage their employees and customers in their own unique fundraising efforts. Consider hosting a team-building activity like an employee softball tournament or auction, a client entertainment event where proceeds benefit VAI, or give customers an opportunity to make a donation when they check out by rounding up their change. There are many ways you can create a culture of giving back within your organization while also creating a memorable experience for both your team and your customers!
