Florida Lighthouse Association





Preserving, Restoring, Protecting & Defending Florida's Lighthouse Towers

LIGHT KEEPERS LEGACY SOCIETY

The Florida Lighthouse Association’s (FLA) mission is to safeguard Florida’s remaining lighthouses for future generations by supporting community based restoration, preservation and education efforts.  Gifts from individuals who include a gift to save lighthouses in their estate plan makes that possible!


FLA recognizes donors who include a charitable gift to FLA
restoration efforts in their estate plan 
$100,000 can completely restore all the historic ironwork in a brick lighthouse tower or fund a years worth of archaeological or historic research by a graduate student team. 
$1,000,000 will restore a lighthouse because that is what it costs to completely restore one of the towers.
