Together we raised $10,000 on #GivingTuesday for Ben’s Lighthouse! Thank You! Your generosity has a meaningful impact on our community and allows Ben’s light to continue to shine.

Check back here often or follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to see what we have been up to, thanks to your support!

Ben’s Lighthouse, based in Newtown, Connecticut, began as a grassroots organization following the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Founded to honor 6-year old Benjamin Wheeler, Ben’s enthusiasm for life – and his love of lighthouses – is the energy that is carried on through the work of the organization.

Our mission drives us to foster all children’s potential to build a more compassionate and connected world.  Ben’s Lighthouse provides programs and opportunities that help kids and teens develop empathy, self-awareness and social connection.  The lighthouses that Ben loved provide the perfect metaphor that guides our work. From local mentoring programs to national outreach service trips, participants are encouraged to find and share their own light – to stand tall and shine bright!
