As a community supported non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the Lorain Lighthouse Foundation depends on private contributions to cover the expenses for operations and capital improvements. The Foundation offers Lighthouse tours and Sunset Dinners as seasonal fundraisers. Because of the Lighthouse’s location in Lake Erie, boat transportation is needed so we are limited to spring/summer to be able to visit the Lighthouse. This limits our on-site fundraising, so donations are instrumental to our maintaining of  Lorain’s “Jewel of the Port”.

The Lorain Lighthouse Foundation, Inc is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1989 by a group of civic leaders wanting to preserve Lorain’s historic lighthouse. The foundation is a volunteer group looking to preserve a unique part of our local history – the Lorain Lighthouse.

Your donation can help the Lorain Lighthouse Foundation, Inc. to maintain “The Jewel of the Port” as one of Lorain’s most famous landmarks. All gifts to preserve and maintain the Lorain Lighthouse are fully tax-deductible.
