Meijer has a rich Michigan history that tells the story of our passion for supporting organizations throughout the Mitten State.
We’re proud to have many long-standing partnerships. For example, in 2010, Meijer began supporting the West Michigan Sports Commission’s signature event – the State Games of Michigan. The festivities evoke a strong sense of community and state pride among participants and spectators. We are thrilled to continue the sportsmanship the Summer Games bring to the area each year, which now includes the Winter Games. Held in Grand Rapids in February, the games gave more than 1,500 spirited athletes another opportunity to build character and have fun.
Meijer brought another premier event to West Michigan in June 2017. The fourth annual Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give brought world-class golf back to Grand Rapids. The Midwest not only has a great history when it comes to women’s golf, but it also has a tradition of giving back – which is why this year’s tournament generated more than $1 million to our Simply Give program to help provide food for hungry families.
With more than 100 stores in Michigan, Meijer sponsors a large variety of local events, sports teams and more. We have relationships with organizations like the Detroit Tigers, athletics programs of various universities and minor league hockey teams including the Saginaw Spirit Hockey Club.
