Founded in 1968, the mission of Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) is to empower Lions clubs, volunteers, and partners to improve health and well-being, strengthen communities, and support those in need through humanitarian services and grants that impact lives globally, and encourage peace and international understanding.

LCIF offers a wide variety of grants to support Lions serving their local communities and the world. For decades, LCIF has contributed to Lions’ efforts in the focus areas of vision, disaster relief, youth and humanitarian causes. LCIF helps Lions increase their impact on these areas while expanding our reach through Lions’ global cause areas – vision, youth, disaster relief, humanitarian, diabetes, childhood cancer, environment, hunger.
