The Point Betsie Lighthouse was restored and is maintained thanks to lighthouse friends like you who choose to become members. Protecting our treasured 1858 beacon on the Lake Michigan shoreline from weather and age requires constant maintenance.
Your membership dues help preserve and protect the historic Point Betsie Lighthouse and keep the lighthouse and Boathouse Museum open for thousands of visitors every year. Please consider a Basic Annual Membership available at the senior, individual, or family levels. Basic Annual Memberships are $30 for an individual senior, $35 for a non-senior, individual or $60 for a family. We have also developed a Leadership Circle Annual Membership. These membership levels have an increased level of annual giving. All members will receive our newsletter twice a year and a Point Betsie Lighthouse bumper sticker. Family Membership and all Leadership Circle Annual Memberships will receive two tour tickets. A 15% Gift Shop discount is provided at the $250 annual level and above. A recognition gift is sent to our members at the $100 annual level and up. Finally we will be hosting a recognition event for Lifesaver and above annual members.
