Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) serves Lions, Lions serve the World.
Founded in 1968, their mission is to empower Lions clubs, volunteers, and partners to improve health and well-being, strengthen communities, and support those in need through humanitarian services and grants that impact lives globally, and encourage peace and international understanding.
These grants financially assist Lions districts with large-scale humanitarian projects that are too extensive for Lions to finance on their own. The Foundation aids Lions in making a greater impact in their local communities, as well as around the world. Through LCIF, Lions ease pain and suffering and bring healing and hope to people worldwide.
Grants provide both immediate assistance following natural disasters and long-term disaster relief for reconstruction efforts. Grants help preserve sight, combat disability, promote health or serve youth.
Every pound donated to LCIF goes toward a grant. Lions support is crucial as donations from Lions provide the majority of LCIF’s revenue. LCIF receives a small amount of funding from foundations and corporations. It receives no club dues. LCIF is truly Lions helping Lions.
Since LCIF began in 1968, it has awarded 9,000 grants totaling US$640 million.
The Lions Club of Bridgend have donated to this Foundation over many years which has helped countless victims of earthquakes, hurricanes and other natural disasters.
