Invest in Lynchburg's Youth

Lynchburg Beacon of Hope is proud to be 100% privately funded by the Lynchburg community. Since 2011, we have raised nearly $10 million in direct support for Lynchburg’s young people. Join your neighbors and friends and donate to Lynchburg Beacon of Hope.

Use your business to provide internships or experiential opportunities for our students through the Stay Close, Go Far summer internship program and the Workforce Pathways Program.


Invest your Time
