Meet the Leaders
Meet the Leaders
At every level throughout the Foundation, our leaders are volunteers. They are as diverse as the national and international communities where Lions serve, yet they are united by their commitment to changing lives and the world by implementing the Foundation’s overall mission, vision and annual goals.
LCIF Board of Trustees
Our Board of Trustees is ultimately responsible for oversight and decision-making within the organization. A total of 21 trustees serve on the LCIF Board, representing all Constitutional Areas. The Board of Trustees ensures LCIF’s financial solvency and organizational integrity. These leaders play a critical role in our grant-making process by reviewing and evaluating each project before funding is awarded.
Our Chairperson serves a demanding one-year term that involves international travel, meetings with partners and Lions leadership as well as administrative oversight. The Chairperson is LCIF’s ambassador throughout the world and ensures that the Foundation remains a leader among international humanitarian volunteer organizations. Read a message from the Chairperson.
LCIF Executive Committee
The Executive Committee is vital to supporting the Chairperson by carrying out significant leadership duties. Made up of 7 Lions leaders, they are a key group in sharing our vision and mission with the world and providing input on key programs and projects of the Foundation.
LCIF Finance Committee
The Finance Committee oversees the LCIF budget and investments and reviews all finances to ensure the Foundation maintains a healthy corpus and is well funded for the future.
SightFirst and Lions Quest Program Advisory Committees
LCIF has Program Advisory Committees for both of our largest programs: Lions Quest and SightFirst. These committee members oversee program development and coordination, conduct national and international outreach and continually drive the programs forward to improve and meet changing needs. The committees are comprised of Lions leaders as well as experts in the field. They review project proposals and suggest grant funding for final review by the Board of Trustees.
Multiple District and District Coordinators
Our Multiple District Coordinators are appointed by the Lions Clubs International President and the Lions Clubs International Foundation Chairperson and serve a three-year term as ambassadors for the Foundation. The Coordinators help LCIF connect with Lions in areas such as fundraising, promotion, training and education regarding the Foundation’s grants and programs. Multiple District Coordinators also have the task of appointing and working with a District Coordinator for each district. Together they are charged with helping raise awareness worldwide.
