Every year the world faces more Challenges and for the past 50+ years “Our Lions Clubs International Foundation” has been there to meet them. They very in kind, size and number, however in one way they remain the same–they alter the existence of all living things.
This year we have faced more challenges than usual, and we still have 3 months left in this year. But then again isn’t that the way we have felt year after year? Fortunately LCIF has been there to offer relief. Since 1968 LCIF has approved over 13,000 grants for over 1 Billion Dollars.
In 2007 LCIF was named the #1 non-government organization in the world to partner with by an independent Financial Times Study. In 2019 LCIF received a 4 Star rating (it’s highest) from Charity Navigation for the 8th consecutive year putting it in the top 4% of all non-profits with accountability, responsibility and transparency. You can be confident your donations are being handled at the highest levels of competency.
Those 13,000 grants and the 1 Billion Dollars are a part of LCIF’s legacy, but legacy does not meet today’s or tomorrow’s needs. If you have given in the past I thank you, if you are continuing to give as I do, I thank you. if you have not in the past now is as good a time as any. 1 Billion Dollars did not come from just one donation, it came from thousands of large and small donations from thousands of Lions from every corner of the world.

Thank you, Yours in Lionism,
PDG Lary Garrison, LCIF Chair, Dist. 37
