Community Highlight: Lansing 5:01

Striving to be a strong community partner, we partner with a different community organization each month through our Quotes for a Cause program. Our agency donates $5 per new business quote, regardless of whether or not the policy is actually purchased! We would like to expand their reach and give each month's organization some space to share their story!

Lansing 5:01 showcases the best of Lansing to Lansing’s future. They strive to retain and attract talent in the Lansing region through innovative programming/events that showcases Lansing as a premier post-graduation destination community to interns and young professionals. Lansing 5:01 coordinates a series of events during the summer season – and throughout the year – for college students participating in internships and co-ops in the Lansing region, as well as young professionals in the area. They incorporate placemaking, art and cultural activities, and professional development into their unique programming. 

Lansing 5:01 has worked tirelessly to plan outstanding events to showcase the crème de la crème of what #LoveLansing has to offer. Whether human bowling at the Lugnuts stadium, dancing to local musicians along the Lansing River Trail, experiencing Downtown Lansing’s skyline like you’ve never seen it before or hitting the trails at The Ledges, there is truly something for everyone.
