Your generosity will be your legacy. The Legacy for Empowerment Society celebrates the individuals who support the Lighthouse through transformative planned gifts.

Everyone is welcome to join, and every gift supports people who are blind find fulfillment and independence through meaningful employment. Your planned gift will ensure a future of dignity for people who are blind, DeafBlind, and blind with other disabilities.

Your legacy will have a lasting impact and demonstrate to your loved ones that helping others and being generous are important to you.

There are many types of planned gifts, and they all create a legacy of generosity for people who are blind and DeafBlind. Many of them are easy to create and all of them have an impact:

  • Make the Lighthouse a beneficiary of your retirement or life insurance by filling out a designation form
  • Leave a gift in your will. Write your will through FreeWill, an easy step by step process of drafting and finalizing your will
  • Create a charitable gift annuity or remainder trust

If you have questions, need assistance creating your legacy, or to notify us of your gift, please contact us at
