Lions Club International Foundation

Lions Clubs of District 6-SE

August 12, 2017

 

During this last year, the Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF) has awarded grants totaling $1,000,000,000 since its founding in 1968.  The money has been used to support life changing assistance and humanitarian projects around the world. Without the generosity of the Lions Clubs, the Foundation would not be able to support worldwide help for those with little hope.  Over the past 50 years, LCIF has expanded well beyond the original disaster grants to grants for humanitarian efforts, youth empowerment, and sight initiatives.

In order to expand the word about LCIF, clubs are asked to appoint a LCIF Club Coordinator.  The contact information for the Coordinator should be reported to LCIF so that the Coordinator will receive important LCIF information to share with club members.  This Lion will share LCIF stories, motivate fellow Lions to support LCIF, and enable LCIF to advance its humanitarian work both locally and globally.

The Lions Clubs Centennial Commemorative Coin Is one way to support LCIF.  The coin can be purchased for $52.95 plus $2.95 shipping.  Ten dollars of the purchase price will go to LCIF.  Other ways of donating include the Melvin Jones Fellow Awards, the LCIF Contributing Member program, club and individual donations.

Lion Donna and I would like to visit your club and share information about LCIF, the Colorado Lions Camp and the KidSight program.  We enjoy making Lions Club visits between grandparent duties, church activities, nonprofit volunteering, Lions Club projects, doctor’s appointments and trips to Cripple Creek.
