Lions Clubs - Ready to Help, Worldwide

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.

Our 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world's largest service club organization. We're also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. We have 1.35 million members in more than 46,000 clubs worldwide. Lions are everywhere. We're men and women who are active in community projects in more than 207 countries and geographic areas.

Who are the Lions?

 

Our History

Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, it's part of our history as well as our work today. But we also perform volunteer work for many different kinds of community projects including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding the elderly and the disabled.

Our Motto

Lions are active. Our motto is "We Serve." Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities.
Lions serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schools through scholarships, recreation and mentoring. Internationally, we offer many programs, including the Peace Poster Contest, Youth Camps and Exchange and Lions Quest. And our Leo Program provides personal development through youth volunteer opportunities. There are approximately 144,000 Leos and 5,700 Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide.

Lions award grants. Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation has awarded more than US$700 million in grants to support Lions humanitarian community projects around the world. Together, our Foundation and Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies and aiding in long-term reconstruction.

Lions Clubs International Foundation

LCIF is the grant-making arm of Lions Clubs International (LCI). Its mission is 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. LCIF receives donations, primarily from Lions worldwide, and in turn, provides grants to support Lions' humanitarian service projects. The foundation's main focus is blindness prevention, but grants are also approved for a wide range of projects that help people who are disadvantaged. Emergency and catastrophe grants make it possible for Lions to be on the scene within hours of a disaster bringing essential relief items. The foundation supports the SightFirst program, which is Lions' global prevention initiative.
