The Rathbun Agency is excited to turn 65 this year! We were founded back in 1956 by two Rathbun brothers - Jack and Jim.The agency started with no customers and one company contract, but steadily grew through referrals as a result of exceptional customer service.
We value community. The Rathbun Agency has been successful because we have immersed ourself within the #LoveLansing community. All of our agents are involved within leadership in local nonprofits and we support organizations that make Lansing it's best. Through our Quotes for a Cause initiative alone, we have been able to donate over $35,000 to sixty six local nonprofits since 2014!
And what better way to celebrate 65 years than by continuing to give back? In honor of turning 65, each of our employees will be selecting a local nonprofit and sharing why that organizations' mission hits close to home. The Rathbun Agency will be donating $65 to each employees organization as we hope to spread the word about all the amazing nonprofits in our backyard.
For Sara Beckner's organization, she selected Big Brothers Big Sisters - Michigan Capital Region (BBBS). They help children realize their potential and build their futures. BBBS nurtures children and strengthen communities so that all youth achieve their full potential. Through one-on-one mentoring, the organization ignites the power and promise of youth.
Sara was a part of the program herself and her Big Sister had and continues to have a huge impact on her life. "Now, I am giving back and hope to also be a big sister to someone in need." For more information of how our local chapter is changing lives, check them out here.
