Philanthropy and Community Involvement

​Through our philanthropic efforts we fund organizations in our community that are changing the lives of some of our neighbors. 


Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation

Every seven minutes in our country someone becomes blind or visually impaired. These people are not statistics. They are our children, parents, friends, neighbors, co-workers and employees.

"It is heartwarming to think that Vantis Life will make a life-changing impact on a person struggling with visual impairment," said Peter Tedone, President and CEO of Vantis Life Insurance. "Through our partnership with Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation, we will bring light into the darkness of a visually impaired person and create a loving and lasting relationship between dog and partner."

In 2015, Vantis Life has sponsored a pup from birth to guide dog partner, a process that takes two years of training and 15,000 hands-on hours for each puppy. Now, in 2018, Vantis has committed to sponsor a second pup that has begun his important life journey.
