Lions clubs have long been active in service to the blind and visually impaired and began providing support for eye banks more than 60 years ago. Today, there are over 60 Lions eye banks in nine countries. Through the dedication and commitment of Lions, thousands of men, women and children have received the “gift of sight.”

The Lions of Colorado and Wyoming founded the Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank in 1982. Beginning with just a handful of donors, the Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank is now recognized the world over for its eye banking expertise. In any language, RMLEB means service, quality and compassion. Our extensive international network has allowed eye donors from Colorado and Wyoming to restore sight to thousands of people throughout the world.   Click on the logo to visit the website.

 

         Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Institute Foundation

                                           

In 1991 the partnership of Colorado and Wyoming Lions Clubs formed the Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Institute and, in October of that year, the Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Institute Foundation.  The Foundation entered into a Memorandum of Agreement with the CU Health Sciences Center through which the Lions committed to raise $6 million to help build the Institute, and the University committed to finish, furnish, equip and administer the Institute. The total cost of the institute when finished was approximately $12 million, half of which was provided by the RMLEI Foundation. The project has been a true partnership between the Lions and the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.

In 1957 the Colorado Lions Foundation was incorporated as a 501(C)(3) corporation under the Laws of the State of Colorado as an organization to administer charitable activities of the Lions Clubs of Multiple District 6.  The land in Woodland Park which is occupied by the Colorado Lions Camp was given to the Colorado Lions Foundation by several Englewood Lions Club members.  In 1981 the Colorado Lions Camp became a separate entity leasing the facilities and land from the Colorado Lions Foundation.
