Dewpoint Presents Lansing Promise Foundation with Additional $25,000 Donation
Organization believes technology and education are key to growing future talent and industry leaders
LANSING, MI – At their annual Rock the Block event on Aug. 9, Dewpoint gifted $25,000 to the Lansing Promise Foundation (Lansing Promise),a place-based scholarship program making higher education more accessible for eligible high school students living in and attending school within Lansing School District boundaries. This donation brings the total amount donated by Dewpoint to $50,000 in 2018, showcasing their commitment to community development.
Mayor Andy Schor and Lansing School District Superintendent, Yvonne Caamal Canul were on hand to help celebrate. Both commented on the importance of the work done by the Lansing Promise and the impact that donations, like those given by Dewpoint, make on area students and their families.
As the leading provider of integrated technology services and solutions in mid-Michigan, Dewpoint pinpoints technology and education as key areas to grow future talent and industry leaders. That is why their DewGood.™ Initiatives develop learning opportunities at all age levels, including those seeking post-secondary education assistance and career training.
“At Dewpoint, we believe in doing the right thing throughout all our endeavors, not just when it comes to our clientele,” said Ken Theis, president and CEO of Dewpoint. “It is part of our organizational core values to set up our community for success by supporting our local communities through investing in the next generation, thus education is a part of that passion of ours.”
Since 2012, community members and socially-minded investors like Dewpoint have given the hope of stepping into a college classroom or job certification program to hundreds of area students who want to take their aspirations to the next level. In 2009, state legislation designated Lansing a “promise zone,” along with 10 other Michigan areas.
“The Lansing Promise is driven by eligible students who see a path toward something greater, as well as area donors who see something great in the next generation of leaders from the capital area,” said the Lansing Promise’s Executive Director Justin Sheehan. “Dewpoint believes in the same goal we do: to make sure access is never an obstacle for the youth in our community.”
Dewpoint also supports a variety of charitable groups including Ele’s Place, End Violent Encounters and Volunteers for America.
