As of July 17, 2020 LCIF has awarded 333 grants totaling $5,128,692 to Covid-19 frontline relief.
For the 2019-20 year 40 individuals and 19 clubs donated a total of $15,951.66 to LCIF from District 37. It is undeniable that we as individuals and as clubs have had a challenging year, however, there are over 1600 individuals and 69 clubs.
2.4% of our members donated a total of $9,061.66 and 27.5% of our clubs made a donation of $6,890.00 with District 37 donating $1,200 to LCIF in memoriums.
This year we closed the $100,000 grant from LCIF toward the state-of-the-art vision equipment used throughout the state of Montana. We also were granted a $95,000 grant to the Laurel Lions for a handicap accessable dock and walkway at the Lions Park. We also have a proposed grant for handicap swings at the Worden, Montana park to be presented to the BOD in August.
For the past several years we as a District have blessed with hundreds of thousands of dollars to benefit our communities. From Vision Equipment to and Emergency Generator District 37 has been well served by our Foundation at International.
I do not know what you can afford to give, be it $5 or $5,000,000, but I am certain every Lion in Montana can afford to make a donation that fits somewhere between those amounts. As you make your donations this coming year please remember our Foundation at International. 100% of funds are used for humanitarian needs as well as being tax deductable. Donations can be made at lcif.org/donate, or mailed to LCIF, Dept. 4547 at Carol Stream, Illinois 60122-4547 USA.
Yours in Lionism- Lary
