“What I want to be remembered for is building a really strong, enduring company and leading a family that is philanthropic through the generations because that’s going to have a bigger impact over time. I enjoy the idea of making a big difference to our employees and through a legacy of charitable giving.” - Keith Hoogland
The Hoogland Family Foundation donated to this preserve. The Hoogland family wanted to protect some of the lands that have been part of their family’s summer vacations for decades. The preserve lies just above the Lake Michigan shore in a region with rapid growth because of its high desirability for summer homes.
The Hoogland family’s support has long been instrumental to our undergraduate business offerings, and we are so appreciative of everything they have made possible. The Hooglands’ gift is part of a robust tradition of Vanderbilt philanthropy for the couple, both 1982 graduates of the College of Arts and Science.
