A letter from your chairperson
Together, we are rising to the challenge of fighting the effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19). To date, LCIF has provided more than US$3,500,000 to COVID-19 relief efforts. Lions everywhere are supporting communities near and far with messages of hope and donations to Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) — your foundation. However, Lions embody service. During this time of social distancing and stay-at-home orders, it can be a challenge to wait until it is safe to participate in responding to the need of your community. We have to be creative in how to serve in these times, and I wanted to offer you an idea.
Have you created a LCIF Facebook fundraiser yet?
If not, please consider adding this to your social distancing activities. They are easy to create and can be built at any time to help generate funds for LCIF’s important humanitarian efforts around the globe.
When a donation to LCIF is made through your fundraiser, 100% of funds will go to our global cause programs to increase Lions’ ability to serve the world.
I hope you consider serving your community in this unique way. Until we can all serve again, stay safe.
Chairperson, Lions Clubs International Foundation
LCIF and Global HOPE Fight Childhood Cancer
Only 10 percent of children survive cancer in developing countries. Because of this staggering reality, LCIF and Global HOPE began a partnership to dramatically improve the treatment and prognosis for children with cancer and blood disorders in Botswana, Malawi, and Uganda.

Donors can now commit to Campaign 100 through a new online pledge form. Holding a fundraiser? This online form makes it easier to collect pledges from your fellow Lions and friends. Try it out at your next fundraising event or submit your pledge today! Support the foundation that supports you.
Share Your Story
Has LCIF funded a project in your community? Has a LCIF grant helped you personally? Storytelling is key to spreading awareness, and our website makes it easy. Share your story today—it may even be published in an upcoming issue of LION Magazine, as a blog, or in another LCIF publication.
Lions and The Carter Center: Partners in Vision
The Carter Center and LCIF’s SightFirst program are working together to put a stop to agonizing diseases like river blindness, prevent blindness and visual impairment, and restore sight to those who have lost it. In other words, the partnership LCIF has with The Carter Center is doing amazing things, particularly for the African region.
Take Your Donation to the Next Level
Become a monthly donor. Lions are there when communities need them, bringing help and resources to combat tragedy. Your gift to LCIF — your foundation — empowers the service of Lions everywhere. Together, we make a powerful impact.
