At Smith Haughey, we believe that the communities we serve are largely responsible for our decades of success. We also believe that service to others is a privilege. And we believe that we have a responsibility to make our communities a better place. That’s why we’ve made it a habit to give back to our communities, both through corporate philanthropy and our commitment of time.

Our attorneys and professional staff express their deep sense of community in many ways. In Traverse City, for example, one of our staff members was on the committee that held the first ever HeartChase event to benefit the American Heart Association.

We are also actively involved in the following organizations:

  • Area Community Living Foundation
  • Alzheimer’s Association of Northern MI
  • American Cancer Society
  • American Heart Association - Heart Chase
  • Big Brother Big Sister of Northwestern Lower Michigan
  • Child and Family Services
  • Father Fred Foundation
  • Great Lakes Children’s Museum
  • Involved Citizen’s Enterprise
  • Michigan Land Institute
  • Munson Health Foundation
  • National Cherry Festival
