2022 Individual Donors

Lighthouse Society Donors

When Reverend Donald E. Robinson, known affectionately as “Rev” started Beacon House in 1991, he named the organization Beacon House thinking of the role of a lighthouse in a storm – that it served as a “beacon” of safety. The Lighthouse Society is an elite group of individual Beacon House supporters, who have a profound impact on Beacon House’s ability to operate its programs and fulfill its mission. Lighthouse Society donors generously contribute $1,000 or more in one year.
