Corporate Partners

About the Corporate Partners Program

The Corporate Partners Program is an annual giving program designed to provide valuable business building opportunities to our corporate friends while stimulating involvement with Aquinas College and providing scholarship funding for our students, who are your future employees. We want to give our partners the opportunity to build their business.

You will join a distinguished group of more than 100 companies that receive valuable marketing exposure in the Aquinas magazine, on the Corporate Partners website, and through regular correspondence with the college’s faculty and staff. This program also provides recognition at selected on and off campus events.


Other benefits to becoming a Corporate Partner are access to the buildings on campus and use of such facilities as meeting areas, computer labs, and classrooms. You will be our guests at Circle Theatre performances and World Affairs Council Lectures; President Juan Olivarez will welcome you at the President’s Dinner or Reception; and you will network with other businesses at the Corporate Partner Luncheons.


We have three levels of giving that offer various benefits to you as the donor. Your gift to the Aquinas College Corporate Partners Program is an investment in the future of our community.


"The Baker Holtz investment in the Aquinas College Corporate Partners program really gets a return. The benefits for our CPA firm are two-pronged: first, we are able to support a college we find critical to the vibrancy of Grand Rapids through our sustainable financial gift. Second, our support has an immediate return in our ability to access other Corporate Partners through unique programming and networking opportunities. While supporting Aquinas in educating and keeping new talent local, we are also making an investment in the growth and development of our own business."


- Lori J. Baker, CPA, CSEP, AEP® Partner, Baker Holtz


“I cannot speak highly enough about the value of Aquinas College Corporate partnership program - it is a strategic component to our marketing strategy. AQ offers a unique program that is so easy to leverage and tremendously comprehensive. We leverage our access to college resources, such as research and industry experts. We reference our partnership in many of our proposals, and presentations, which ultimately provides greater value to our clients.”


- Arthur Bott, President & CEO, Grand Rapids Plastics
