Supporting Communities Around the World
Thousands of hours of service.
Countless opportunities to make a difference.
This is how Lighthouse Cares.
At Lighthouse, corporate giving and community engagement are essential to our culture and success. That's why we've established Lighthouse Cares, a dedicated initiative that helps us positively impact the communities where we work and live around the globe.
Through Lighthouse Cares, our team members can get involved in various giving and engagement activities, including monetary contributions, donation drives, and collaborative events. We partner with international nonprofits such as Ronald McDonald House Charities and local nonprofits in each of our office locations to create a lasting impact in the communities we serve. Our goal with Lighthouse Cares is to drive awareness of great causes, increase employee engagement, and create a culture of giving.
Volunteer Time Off (VTO)
Lighthouse offers up to 16 hours of paid volunteering time off, or VTO, that each employee can use throughout the calendar year.
Charity of the Month
Every month, Lighthouse employees nominate a charity of their choice for the chance to receive a $1,000 donation towards their worthy cause.
Mixture of in-person and donation-based activities that all employees can participate in virtually or in their home town.
