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

In 2013, after a particularly difficult year, my husband and I moved to Vieques, Puerto Rico – a beautiful, tiny island off the coast of Puerto Rico. Shortly after moving there, we started our own custom furniture business and built our home and community there. In fact, our daughter is named for the town we lived in. We have some family there, but the island community became our adopted family when we lived there and they’re still huge part of our life to this day.

No matter how much outreach a community may have in place there is always a need for more – more programs, more awareness, and more participation. It can be both easy to forget and hard to understand that hunger and need exist outside our doorstep. One might feel powerless to make a difference, or that one person cannot solve this problem. However, one person can influence change.
