Smith Insurance Lighthouse ProjectThe Smith Insurance Lighthouse Project is an employee-run committee formed to oversee the community partnership and donation incentive in which Smith Insurance has been engaged for many years. Over two-month intervals, the Lighthouse Project raises money by “Casual Friday” donations and half day-off raffles which are matched by the company, along with special events. Since the committee’s inception in 2011, The Lighthouse Project has presented over $40,000 in donations to local individuals and organizations in need.

The Employees of Smith Insurance, through The Lighthouse Project, are committed to improving the community through a variety of fundraising initiatives.
