Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF)

LCIF is the charitable arm of Lions Clubs International. Clubs from around the world (46,000 in over 200 countries) donate to the fund which enables the Organisation to respond quickly to tragedies around the world as well as providing grant funding for local humanitarian effort.

LCIF helps Lions improve people’s lives around the world from combating vision problems to responding to major disasters. Over the past decade more than $100million has been provided for disaster relief programmes

LCIF also fights international health issues, such as measles. The Organisation is committed to raise $30million to protect tens of millions of children. The sum will be matched jointly by the Gates Foundation and the UK’s Department for International Development.

LCIF provides grants in four main focus areas; saving sight, serving youth, providing disaster relief and meeting humanitarian needs.
