In our 43-year history, LCIF has become an internationally-respected charitable organization, awarding on average US$30 million each year to Lions’ humanitarian projects. We have been able to do this through the generosity of Lions and partners, and due to our fiscal responsibility. Donors can be confident that funds entrusted to LCIF will support initiatives that impact communities and change lives. LCIF receives no part of club dues.
It is an amazing feeling to know that your donation has a direct impact on the lives of people around the world, helping restore sight, support youth, provide disaster relief and address many other humanitarian needs. LCIF will continue to ensure that all donated funds are used efficiently to help even more people.
The 11,077 grants that LCIF has awarded since our founding have been thoroughly reviewed before approval by the LCIF Board of Trustees. Technical advisors, external evaluators and LCIF staff conduct careful monitoring and evaluation before, during and after the project.
When making a donation, it is important to choose fiscally responsible charities. We appreciate the opportunity to share more about our finances and programs with you. You may review our most recent Annual Reports here:
