One unified global team. Hundreds of hours of service. Countless opportunities to make a difference.
This is how Lighthouse Cares.
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.

lighthouse volunteering spotlight: Cassie’s Story
His handmade sign reads, “just me and my dog.” He has kind eyes and he likes to sit on a bench with a view of the water – just a 5-minute walk from Lighthouse’s Seattle office. After only one interaction, I knew I wanted to create a care package to help him. To be honest, I’d never done anything like that before and so I googled “homeless care packages” the entire bus ride home that night. The following weekend I went on a shopping spree and collected dog food, protein bars, toothpaste, wet wipes, hand sanitizer, and anything else that google had told me might be helpful.

In addition to hosting Lighthouse-sponsored volunteering opportunities for our employees through the Lighthouse Cares program, Lighthouse offers each full-time employee Volunteering Time Off, or VTO, to participate in nonprofit activities outside of work. Below is one example of a dedicated employee leveraging that time to participate in their community and give back to a cause that is near and dear to them.
