We are committed to supporting our community.
From our local neighborhood, to the cultural and social communities of our staff and customers, we mobilize our time, energy, funds, and platform in pursuit of a more equitable city. We’re committed to social justice in all its forms, and are so proud to work with partner organizations who are building a Boston that works for everyone. We believe that effective change requires communal work, and we empower our team members to serve and support partner organizations alongside company-wide and product-based initiatives.
Super excited about this work? So are we. Fill out this form to stay in the loop about our community projects and the many ways to get involved.
Our monthly partnership.
We are grateful to partner with the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center (BARCC) this April, which is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. BARCC provides vital services to residents of the Boston area, through free, confidential support for survivors of sexual violence, their loved ones, and professionals in this field. The organization aims to empower survivors to heal and seek justice in ways that are meaningful to them, and in the longer term to end sexual violence through healing, policy advocacy, prevention training, and large scale social change.
BARCC was founded in 1973, operating out of the space recently established as the Cambridge Women’s Center—who happen to have been our March partner! As a women-owned and -operated business, Lamplighter is honored to collaborate with organizations that have been pivotal in Cambridge feminist history.
This April, BARCC will host 15th annual Walk for Change—the organization’s biggest fundraiser that is crucial to keeping their services free for all survivors. The event will be held virtually on Sunday, April 25th.
Collaborate with us.
Lamplighter collaborations most often involve either one-time donations/events or month-long partnerships. Read on to learn how to participate in one or both of these programs. We’re excited to learn how we can support you!
To request a one-time donation for beer, merchandise, or event space (virtual or in person), please fill out our donation request form here.

We’re especially excited to partner with organizations fighting for justice for BIPOC, queer/trans folks, women, and immigrants to the US, as well as organizations leading the fight against environmental racism and climate change.
