We did it! We saved the lighthouse, and now we need to restore it.

Tee shirts and other lighthouse merchandise available! Click here.

The Gay Head Lighthouse, an island treasure and National Historical Landmark with a long and rich history, has been moved to safety away from the eroding cliff-edge.

Now the task of restoring the historic building begins, and the work will be costly. Your tax deductible donation will help fund the restoration of the Gay Head Lighthouse to a condition that will sustain it for several more generations.  Donations of any amount are important and greatly appreciated. If you’d prefer to spread your payment over two installments (2015, 2016), this can be accommodated; please email a request for a pledge form to info@gayheadlight.org.

Contributions to the Gay Head Lighthouse Fund maintained by the Town of Aquinnah for the purpose of effecting the relocation and on-going maintenance of the Gay Head Lighthouse are tax deductible under Section 170 (c) (1) of the Internal Revenue Code for U.S. income tax purposes to the same extent as permitted by applicable law under Section 501 (c) (3) of said Code.
