Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) provides grant funding to assist Lions districts in developing and implementing large-scale humanitarian projects. These humanitarian grants help Lions expand their outreach and increase their impact within local and global communities to serve even more people in need around the world.
The Foundation provides support in four areas of service:
Millions of people around the world have benefited through more than 11,340 Foundation grants, which have totaled more than US$826 million. That number continues to grow in part from gifts from foundations, corporations, governments and non-Lions. However, the vast majority of LCIF’s funding comes through the generous donations from Lions clubs and individual members.
Through the generosity and hard work of Lions, our partners and supporters, LCIF was able to award 489 grants totaling US$39 million in fiscal year 2012-13. These international grants are helping thousands of people to have a better life. Look for more details on these international grants, and projects and individuals helped in our annual report.
