One Unified Global Team

Hundreds of hours of service. Countless opportunities to make a difference.

This is how Lighthouse Cares.

Community Engagement

At Lighthouse, corporate giving and community engagement is fundamental to our culture and provides significant benefits to our employees, the company, and the communities where we work and live.

In the spirit of our mission, we’ve built the Lighthouse Cares program to steer our commitment to improving lives and developing relationships through monetary contributions, donation drives, and collaborative events and opportunities. Lighthouse Cares aims to drive awareness, increase employee engagement, and make a greater impact in our communities across the globe. We’ve established a lasting partnership with one international nonprofit, Ronald McDonald House Charities, as well as a hyper-localized nonprofit in each office location.

Volunteer Time Off (VTO) Policy

Lighthouse offers up to 8 hours of paid volunteering time off, or VTO, that each employee can use throughout the calendar year.

Ability to Write a Promotional Article

To showcase employee efforts, support our employees, and give them the opportunity to share their story and have their voice heard.

All-Company Activities

Mixture of in-person and donation-based activities that all employees can participate in.

Nothing we do at the Pike Market Food Bank would be possible without our volunteers… Lighthouse volunteers, who have experienced first-hand what we are doing and who have met those we are serving, are among those passionate advocates.
-Brian Anderson, Manager of Pike Market Food Bank

Five Ways to Give Back During COVID-19
SEATTLE, Wash.
April 27, 2020
In the midst of planning our 2020 Lighthouse Cares calendar of events, the COVID-19 pandemic began to spread across the globe and changed the way the team was able to engage with volunteer events and efforts. The Lighthouse Cares Committee, a team of 16 Lighthouse employees, organized other ways to give back during this time by making monetary donations to the World Health Organization, Dinner4Docs, the Ronald McDonald House Charities, and other related organizations across the globe. In addition, something that really inspired the group was the volume of individual efforts happening across the Lighthouse team in various locations. Below are the stories of four individuals who have found unique ways to give back during this difficult time in history.
