The Melvin Jones Fellowship (MJF) is LCIF's highest honor, and is a recognition of humanitarian work and is presented in honor of donations made to LCIF in the amount of $1,000. Often these donations are made by a group or district on behalf of an honoree. Created in 1973, the fellowship is named for the founder of Lions Clubs International, Melvin Jones. The fellowship represents humanitarian qualities such as generosity, compassion, and concern for the less fortunate. Melvin Jones Fellows receive a lapel pin and a personalized wall plaque in honor of their commitment to helping others.

LIONS OF MICHIGAN HALL OF FAME 

The Lions of Michigan Hall of Fame is a project of the Lions of Michigan Foundation.

Each year up to four individuals are selected for enshrinement, normally one living member and up to three deceased individuals.

LIONS OF MICHIGAN SERVICE HUMANITARIAN AWARD 

JOHN S. NOEL FELLOWS

The John S. Noel Fellow is the Lions of Michigan Service Foundation’s most distinguished form of recognition, and the award is available to recognize an outstanding individual for his or her service to Lions and those in need. The award is available for contributions of $1,000 or more to the Lions of Michigan Service Foundation. John S. Noel was a charter member of the Grand Rapids Lions Club in 1919, and he was Michigan’s 1st President of Lions Clubs International in 1923-24. The award is duly named in honor of John S. Noel's accomplishments in advancing the cause of Lionism in Michigan and throughout the world and for his tireless efforts to help people in need.

KEN E. LAUTZENHEISER FELLOWS

The Ken E. Lautzenheiser Fellow is available for contributions of $500 or more to the Lions of Michigan Foundation. The award is often used to recognize extraordinary efforts by a Lion or Lioness Club member - many Clubs and Districts use the award to recognize the Lion and/or Lioness of the year. Ken E. Lautzenheiser was instrumental in organizing the Lions of Michigan Foundation in the early 1980's. He believed there was a definite need in Michigan for an organization that could address the medical needs of individuals that had no insurance and nowhere else to turn. Ken knew that if Lions Clubs combined resources, Lions could have a greater impact on their communities and do more to help people in need.
