Follow the Five Principles of Responsible Outdoor Lighting to make sure your home or business property is dark-sky friendly.. Close your drapes and shades at night to prevent interior lighting from adding to the light pollution.
Let your neighbors, friends, family members and businesses you frequent know about the importance of preserving our dark skies and encourage them to join our dark sky movement.
Watch for ways you can help on this front, as we become aware of proposals that you can lobby for or vote for.
The more supporters we have, the more influential we can be. Join our email list to show your support for our mission and goals, and to get updates, calls to action, and other important information delivered directly to your inbox.
If you can spare the time, volunteer to help with one of our projects, like getting Nantucket designated as an International Dark Sky Community.
Please consider making a donation to help us achieve our goals. If you would rather donate to us directly (by check or a wire transfer) instead of via our GoFundMe campaign, please just shoot us an email. PLEASE NOTE: You donation WILL NOT BE TAX DEDUCTIBLE. While Nantucket Lights is a nonprofit corporation, it has applied for 501(c)(4) status -- rather than 501(c)(3) status -- to allow it to advocate for the adoption of legislation and local ordinances that will help preserve Nantucket's dark skies. Donations to 501(c)(4) organizations are not tax deductible under IRS rules and regulations. We hope you'll still choose to donate!
