Dutch Island Light House Working to save a Narragansett Bay treasure

Our Mission

The Dutch Island Lighthouse Society (DILS) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the restoration and preservation of the Dutch Island Lighthouse structure, to maintaining the lighthouse as a functioning private aid to navigation, and to the preservation of the history of the light station and its keepers.

In 2012 we established an endowment fund at The Rhode Island Foundation for perpetual maintenance of the light house. Our goal of $200,000.00 will generate enough revenue to cover our usual annual maintenance expenses. Currently we have a total of $166,500.00 in this fund. All donations gladly accepted. Checks may be sent to the Endowment Fund, DILS, PO Box 435, Saunderstown, RI 02874.
