The Service Grant Initiative deadline has now been extended to June 30. That means you have nine more weeks to recruit new members to your club and qualify for this grant opportunity. Invest directly in your new members, and make their first year a memorable one.
As a reminder, here is how the service grant works:
Add new members between April 1 and June 30
Clubs will have the opportunity to receive a special grant for all new Lions reported during between April 1 and June 30.
Apply for a grant beginning in July
Officers of eligible clubs will receive the application via email in July to apply for a Service Grant for New Members, which awards a total of US$35 for each new member in two installments on December 31, 2019 and June 30, 2020 club statements if new members stay active. Clubs become eligible to apply by adding new members who pay entrance fees between April 1 and June 30.
Engage new members
Funds should be used to plan activities that will engage new members in service so they have a great on-boarding experience in your club.
