BB&T Lighthouse Project

The best investment you will ever make!

An investment in your community is one of the best investments you will ever make! Whether it's a financial contribution, an investment of your time or both, you can truly make a difference.

The demand for services to address the critical needs of our communities is immense. You can see it everywhere—from our school systems where hunger prevents children from focusing on their education—to our streets and homeless shelters where many, including veterans, search to escape oppressive heat or bitter cold.

The nonprofit organizations that strive to address such vast needs continue to struggle in this challenging environment. We urge you to join us in making our communities better places to be.

The BB&T Lighthouse Project gives us an opportunity to provide corporate financial support to local charities, while our associates roll up their sleeves and go to work landscaping, painting, preparing meals and more. Since the Lighthouse Project began in 2009, our associates have contributed more than 475,000 volunteer hours and improved the quality of life for more than 13 million people.

"Each year our associates vote to continue the BB&T Lighthouse Project another year," said BB&T Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Kelly S. King. "It truly is rewarding to realize with a little time and energy everyone can make a difference."

But, our communities need you too! We encourage everyone—corporations, small businesses and individuals – to consider how you can help in your own way. Duplicate the BB&T Lighthouse Project model…create your own model…forget the model…just find your way to invest in your community and make it a better place!

Every dollar you donate and every hour you volunteer helps provide a little warmth and light to those who find themselves in their darkest hours.

We think you will find—as our associates have—helping your fellow man is immensely gratifying, and being able to do so is not an obligation, it's a privilege.
