With Support from Lions, the Future is Bright

Dear Lions,Dr. Jitsuhiro Yamada

As many of you know, earlier this year, our foundation reached a monumental milestone: LCIF has awarded more than US$1 billion in life-changing grants since our founding in 1968. Though these grants, Lions and LCIF have been able to provide hope and dignity to millions of people who need it most. Thanks to the generosity of Lions and partners, we have helped communities recover from disaster, we have empowered our youth, saved sight, and much more.

While we have accomplished so much in our nearly 50 years, there is still so much to do. We have a duty to our children and our future. With your continued support of LCIF, we can continue to provide hope and comfort to people around the corner and around the world.

Watch this video to learn more about how LCIF is making a difference:

I look forward to soon seeing many of you at our International Convention in Chicago!

Disaster Preparedness Grants Help Communities
The LCIF Disaster Relief grant program provides financial support to Lions and their partners engaged in natural disaster preparedness, response and recovery efforts. Disaster Preparedness grants offer US$5,000 to US$10,000 to districts interested in partnering with local authorities and other community organizations to plan and prepare for future disaster relief efforts. Community Recovery grants provide up to US$20,000 for short-term clean-up and repair efforts in situations where other organizations have already addressed immediate needs.
