LCIF Mission

Every day, Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) works to fulfill our mission:

“To support the efforts of Lions clubs worldwide in serving their local communities and the world community as they carry out essential humanitarian service projects.”

Since our founding in 1968, we have striven to sustain Lions’ humanitarian service goals throughout the world, awarding over 10,000 grants totaling more than US$789 million, in the four key areas of sight, youth, disaster relief and other humanitarian efforts.

We Give Sight

LCIF is providing vision for those in need all over the world by combating eye diseases, creating infrastructure to improve eye care delivery, increasing the number of trained eye care professionals and making vision care more equitable and sustainable

We Support Youth

All young people deserve to have an education, feel cared for and experience healthy development so they can have the chance to achieve their dreams. Through our positive youth development program, Lions Quest, LCIF is helping children learn to work together, make positive decisions and serve their communities. The Foundation also supports youth through constructing schools, youth centers and vocational training centers.

We Provide Disaster Relief

Lions are often some of the first to arrive at a disaster to provide relief, and Foundation support is right there with them. We help devastated communities survive after disasters and bring hope by assisting in long-term efforts of rebuilding of homes and lives.

We Address Humanitarian Needs

From working to combat global health issues such as measles and diabetes to empowering those with disabilities to lead more independent and fulfilling lives, LCIF is dedicated to a range of humanitarian service projects. The Foundation continues to develop and expand programs that meet emerging needs worldwide.

Problems Get Smaller

Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That’s because we help where help is needed—in our own communities and around the world—with unmatched integrity and energy.
