Lighthouse Leadership Circle

Leaders Light the Way

A leadership giver is an individual (or more than one person from the same household) who gives $500 or more to the annual community campaign. All leadership givers are members of the Lighthouse Leadership Circle.  

Lighthouse Leadership Circle members receive recognition on our website and in our annual report and an invitation to our annual leadership appreciation event, hosted by our north and south leadership co-chairs in late summer.

But, more importantly, leadership givers are a powerful force for positive change in our community. Last year, more than 7,600 Ottawa County residents and 200 companies donated more than $2.3 million to the campaign.  Of that total, $946,991 was donated by 692 leadership givers. When you become a leadership giver, you join a small group of community champions who are having a BIG impact on our community.

Leadership Challenge Match:
Double your donation!

Anonymous donors have committed $80,000 in matching dollars for new and increased leadership gifts from residents of Ottawa County and anyone who donates through an Ottawa County workplace campaign. When you give a new leadership gift of $500 or more, or increase your leadership giving, your donation will make double the impact!
