The lives of 1.4 million people worldwide will be changed through recently approved LCIF grants. The Board of Trustees approved 98 Lion grant projects, a total of US$6,153,390. I want to give you just a few examples of what Lions will accomplish with this support from LCIF.
In Nepal, visual impairment and blindness are not easy to overcome, especially without access to eye care. To change this, LCIF supported a project to build an eye clinic that has restored sight and improved the quality of life for millions.
Our Lion leaders believe donating to LCIF is a gift to humanity; an investment in our future. They believe we have an obligation to leave this world in a better place than we found it. There are so many reasons to support our Foundation. Listen as Lion leaders explain why they support LCIF and why they think you should, too.
LCIF Disaster Relief: Hope for the Future in Puerto Rico
Lions have always accepted and met challenges. Two years after the storm, local Lions are still leading disaster reconstruction efforts, despite the difficult, often treacherous terrain. With support from LCIF, Lions are rebuilding and repairing homes in Puerto Rico, remaining determined to restore normalcy to their island.
Phone, text, social media, and email scams are on the rise. Be aware of scams that fraudulently use the Lions Clubs International or LCIF name or logo. The goal of these scams is to trick people into revealing personal and financial information, resulting in identity theft. Note: the recent sweepstakes conducted with our trusted partner, Omaze, was an official LCIF promotion — thanks to all who participated. Look out for next year’s promotion!
People and communities worldwide are in great need. Through LCIF grants, Lions provide service, delivering care when needed most. Campaign 100 will empower Lions to serve hundreds of millions of people. To achieve our goals and raise US$300 million, we need support from every Lion!
