None of the progress we have made toward the completion of the National Lighthouse Museum in Staten Island have been possible without the support of our donors. We cannot adequately express our thankfulness for the faith and trust they have demonstrated, to our organization, through the donations of their generous gifts. Thank you!

Triangle Equities


The central iconic feature of the NLM Educational Resource Center is the “Wall of Lights” exhibit. The side panels of this representative lighthouse structure contain miniature models of significant lighthouses around the world. For a $1000 donation, each model displayed is identified in the exhibit with a small engraved plaque identifying the lighthouse and the name of the donor. There are only fifteen lighthouses available for sponsorship. Contact the Museum Executive Director for details.
