Program areas at LCIF

Humanitarian grants and programs - as members of their community, lions are uniquely positioned to identify local initiatives that will improve the lives of the people around them who are underserved and vulnerable. Each year lions club members design and implement projects that improve the quality of life for people with disabilities, the elderly, the chronically ill, at-risk youth, and economically disadvantaged members of their communities. Lcif humanitarian grants are combined with locally raised funds, typically supporting capital constructions or equipment needs. In addition, lcif develops global initiatives and partnerships based on common local needs, for example through the opening eyes program with special olympics lions have screened the vision of more than 405,509 athletes in 93 different countries. Also, through involvement within the measles initiative and gavi, the vaccine alliance since 2010, lions helped support the vaccination of millions of children in several countries.

Disaster relief - lcif implements a grassroots model of disaster relief through emergency and major catastrophe grants. These grants are immediately available to local lions in areas affected by natural disasters, such as hurricanes, earthquakes, and floods, and can be used first for immediate needs and later for long-term reconstruction. Immediately after a disaster, lions quickly assess the most urgent needs and use emergency grant funds to deliver basics such as water, food, clothing and medicine. After immediate needs are met, major catastrophe funds are used to rebuild the lives of those affected by providing key infrastructure such as housing, schools, and other important community buildings. To date, nearly 4,494 emergency grants have been awarded worldwide.
