Who We Are...
The American Lighthouse Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit
organization dedicated to saving American's historic lighthouses. ALF
was founded in 1994 and is headquartered in Rockland, Maine. ALF and its
chapters have stewardship responsibility for
America's lighthouses and has invested over $2.2 million dollars
in lighthouse preservation over the past decade.
Lighthouses are among the unique structures of our past
that people are drawn to, whether for their innate ability to inspire,
comfort or serve as timeless symbols of our coastlines.
The success of ALF's mission is centered on empowering
civic-minded volunteers to make a meaningful difference in preserving
their local community lighthouse and providing preservation resources
and assistance nation-wide.
The combination of community involvement and public
access of these historic structures makes ALF's work about people as
much as the lighthouses.
