Presque Isle Township Lighthouses Restoration Fund
In 2018, in partnership with Presque Isle Township we established the Presque Isle Township Lighthouse Restoration Fund at the Community Foundation for Northeastern Michigan. Funds from the Restoration Fund are used for restoration of the lighthouses and the 1905 Keeper's House.
On GivingTuesday (November 27, 2018), the initial fund of $15,000 was increased by $3,300 through gifts from generous donors. If you were among them, we thank you! In 2020 and 2021, donations on GivingTuesday increased the funds to over $46,232. Replacement of the cracked bricks and repairs to the window lintels in the New Lighthouse tower were completed in October 2022. Funds for the repair were drawn from the Lighthouses Restoration Fund, the Lighthouse Gift Shop Committee Fund, and the Township’s Facilities Budget.
We invite you to support our efforts to preserve our landmarks and cultural treasures. Donations can be made directly at Presque Isle Township Lighthouses Restoration Fund.
