Chesapeake Chapter H.E.L.P. Fund

Working on Ft. Washington

The Chesapeake Chapter of the United States Lighthouse Society has an on-going preservation program to help maintain the local Chesapeake area lighthouses, lightships and lighthouse artifacts.

Donations to the Herb Entwistle Lighthouse Preservation Fund will be used to help finance the preservation activities of the Chapter and are tax deductible. These funds are restricted donations that are maintained in a separate account that is only used to fund lighthouse or lightship preservation and restoration projects, or our annual Preservation Grant.

The fund was named to honor Herb Entwistle who was our founding president.

Individuals who donate over $20.00 can receive a preservation pin as a thank you.
