The Point Betsie Lighthouse was restored and is maintained thanks to generous gifts from lighthouse friends like you. Protecting our treasured 1858 beacon on the Lake Michigan shoreline from weather and age requires constant maintenance.

Your donation helps preserve and protect the historic Point Betsie Lighthouse and keep the lighthouse and Boathouse Museum open for thousands of visitors every year. Please consider an individual or family membership, a donation, or a contribution in honor or in memory of a loved one.

Memberships are $35 for an individual or $50 for a family. Members receive our exclusive newsletter twice a year. And we are grateful for donations of any amount! You can even honor or remember a friend or family member with a donation to the lighthouse. Remembrances are published in our newsletter.
