Lighthouse Commodities Celebrates its 5th Anniversary by Announcing ‘Lighthouse Beacon Fund’ Initiative

October 23rd, 2020

Bismarck, North Dakota (October 23rd, 2020) – Grain marketing firm Lighthouse Commodities is excited to celebrate its fifth anniversary today. Lighthouse began on October 23rd, 2015 with the belief that farmers should have access to the same tools, insights and markets the rest of the supply chain enjoys. Starting out in a spare bedroom, the company has since grown to now market over 530,000 acres annually of farmer client grain. During its first five years, Lighthouse shipped more than 70 million bushels of grain to hundreds of destinations across North Dakota, a dozen other states and four Canadian provinces. Lighthouse President Dave Spickler commented on the exciting milestone, “It’s humbling to be celebrating with impressive company – team members, farmer clients, logistics providers, technology partners and grain destinations that have made it possible. I’m especially proud that today, day 1,825 still feels like day one. We’re approaching the start of our sixth year with the same focus and urgency that has led to five years of innovation and growth and we’re eager to start working on the initiatives that will power our next five years.” Lighthouse is excited to announce one of those initiatives today, the ‘Lighthouse Beacon Fund’. Our farmer clients are dedicated to supporting and strengthening the communities they live and work in and Lighthouse wants to join their efforts going forward. With the establishment of the Beacon Fund, Lighthouse will provide matching donations for farmer clients as they give to causes, organizations, events and activities that are important to their communities and way of life. The Lighthouse Beacon Fund will set aside a fixed amount annually that each farmer client can request as a matching donation to a local cause or organization of their choosing.
