LCIF

As the official charitable organization of Lions Clubs International, a leading humanitarian organization, Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) supports Lions’ compassionate works by providing grant funding for their local and global humanitarian efforts.

LCIF provides grants to address a variety of humanitarian needs. Standard Grants are the proper tool for construction and/or equipment related projects.  Grants may be requested to fund the purchase of vision screening devices in relation to KidSight efforts. Standard Grants are a matching grant opportunity where Lions may request up to 50% of the overall project cost (not to exceed $100,000) and must contribute local matching funding for the remaining 50% of the project.  The minimum grant request amount for Standard grants is $10,000. Funding may not be requested for operational expenses or on a reimbursement basis. Additionally, the local match must be cash and at least two Lions clubs must sponsor the grant application; although, several clubs could be involved. Applications may be submitted at the District or Multiple District level. Other criteria apply.

Standard grants are reviewed by the LCIF Board of Trustees 3 times a year. Applications must be received in completed form the Humanitarian Programs Department no later than sixty days before scheduled board meetings. Please check with LCIF on the application deadline dates.

For more information on the Standard Grants program and Vision Screening Project Guidelines, please contact Wesley Gathings in the LCIF Humanitarian Programs Department at Wesley.gathings@lionsclubs.org or 630-468-6887.
