Altrusa Foundation Lamplighters

Lamplighters are Altrusans or Altrusa Clubs who've contributed $500 (US) or more to the International Foundation in a twelve month period. Contributions can be made in one's own name or on behalf of someone else. Lamplighter members are recognized with a special gold Lamplighter pin. Diamonds are added to the Lamplighter pin upon each succeeding $500 contribution.

An Altrusa Club receives a distinguished Lamplighter patch for their club banner upon their initial contribution.

The Lamplighter contributions can be designated to any of the following programs: Grants, Endowment, Disaster Relief, or Where Needed Most.These contributions serve these programs alongside the Endowment Fund - making the Lamplighter Program a leading source of growth for the International Foundation.

The Lucente Lamplighter was established in 2005 and is named after Josie Lucente, who served 20 years as the Altrusa International Foundation's Executive Director.  An individual who is honored, or makes, a total of ten $500 contributions receives the unique Lucente Lamplighter pin. 

Lamplighters are recognized in Altrusa publications, the International Foundation's Annual Report, and at the Foundation Luncheon held at the Altrusa International Convention.
