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 volunteer for many different kinds of community projects - including caring for the environment,
feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.
Lions give sight.
By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness
of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. Lions have extended their commitment
to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through their international SightFirst Program, which
works to eradicate blindness.
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.
Lions award grants.
Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation has awarded more than $660 million in grants to support
Lions humanitarian projects around the world. The Foundation was also ranked the number one
nongovernmental organization in a 2007 study by The Financial Times.
