Corporate Donation Matching

Employee match programs are a benefit that many companies offer to encourage and reward giving among their staff.  The employer will match an employee’s gift to a charity one-to-one.  Please contact us if your employer participates in this type of program and we will be happy to take any necessary steps to work with you and your employer. As an example, we are currently registered with Benevity.

Presque Isle Lighthouses Restoration Fund

Our historic lighthouses symbolize our rich maritime history and attract visitors from around the country. Owned and operated by the Township, these historic beacons have weathered many winters, but they also require significant resources to keep them standing proud.

In 2018, Presque Isle Township Museum Society (PITMS) and Presque Isle Township established the Presque Isle Lighthouses Restoration Fund to support the care and preservation of our Old and New Lighthouses and related buildings. The fund, administered by the Community Foundation for Northeast Michigan (CFNEM), supports the Township’s efforts to restore the Old and New Lighthouses and related buildings.

Presque Isle Lighthouses Restoration Fund donations are accepted throughout the year. Should you like to contribute directly to the Presque Isle Lighthouses Restoration Fund you may do so by going to the Community Foundation for Northeastern Michigan by going to or mailing your check to PITMS, PO Box 208, Presque Isle, MI 49777.
