A Non-Profit Organization
Ponce De Leon Lighthouse Preservation Association, Inc. is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization dedicated to the preservation and dissemination of the maritime and social history of the Ponce De Leon Inlet Light Station.
A Fiscally Independent Preservation Association
Founded by local residents concerned for the well-being of the historic Light Station, the Preservation Association has managed and operated the Lighthouse since its acquisition by the Town from the Department of the Interior in 1972. The Association finances its ongoing mission to preserve, restore, and interpret the historic Ponce De Leon Inlet Light Station through admission and gift shop sales, memberships, and private donations. The Association is self-sufficient and receives no direct financial support from either the Town of Ponce Inlet or the federal government to maintain, operate, or preserve the site. Limited state funding is sought when available.
