District 33K Melvin Jones Fellowships: Each* represents a progressive

Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF)

LCIF is the charitable arm of Lions Clubs International. Every day, Lions Clubs and their partners work closely together to impact lives across the globe. Lions Clubs International Foundation has been actively assisting Lions’ humanitarian needs across the globe. Since 1968, the foundation has provided more than 12,000 grants worth more than $900 million. The four primary areas LCIF funds through grants are sight, youth, disaster relief and general humanitarian efforts. Here’s just some of the work we have accomplished together:

Giving the gift of sight - LCIF is a leader in providing support for preventing avoidable blindness and restoring sight for people around the world. In Massachusetts, Lions Clubs donate funds directly to LCIF for various programs but we go even further. Lions of Massachusetts place an annual grant request to match some of the funds we raise through Massachusetts Lions Eye Research to increase the amount of money we give to a worthy institution through the Presidential Grant Program. In District 33K we have placed grants for various projects including our District 33K Eyemobile. Learn more about LCIF Sight Programs.

Giving support to youth programs – Since its founding nearly four decades ago, LCIF has been committed to helping children and young adults in need all over the world. Lions Quest programs across Massachusetts have decreased in recent years but at one time were sponsored by numerous clubs. Learn more about LCIF Youth Programs. You can also view videos on LCIF's efforts to support youth.

Providing relief after a disaster – Lions help wherever it’s needed. In the last 10 years, LCIF has provided more than US$100 million for disaster relief programs worldwide. Some of the disasters you’ll recognize; the Haiti earthquake, September 11th and the Southeast Asia tsunami. A few years ago when a tornado tore through western Massachusetts, Lions in District 33Y received emergency grants. The same thing happened in Quincy after a natural disaster occurred there. Oftentimes, when a disaster strikes, LCIF will reach out to the Lions of the world for donations; many times, these donations are eligible to be designated as Melvin Jones Fellowship donations allowing Lions Clubs to recognize a Club or community member.  Learn more about LCIF disaster relief programs

Fulfilling humanitarian needs - Humanitarian service is at the heart of LCIF and Lions' work. Whether it’s building handicap ramps, helping with Habitat for Humanity, providing measles shots or providing support for diabetes education, prevention and treatment programs you can count on LCIF to make a difference.
