WELCOME TO THE DUNNVILLE LIONS AND LIONESS WEBSITE
WHO AND WHAT ARE THE LIONS
Your local Lions club is made up of men and women from within the community who have a common desire to make life a little better by raising funding for worthwhile causes locally and around the world. We are a non profit organization and each member pays annual dues to help offset the costs associated with running the organization. We are proud of our standing in the world as one of the groups that returns a high percentage of all funds raised directly to charities.
Here is a ranking of some noted charitable groups which shows how many cents per dollar donated actually gets to the needy:
- Salvation Army .93 cents
- Lions Club .83 cents
- World Vision .81 cents
With legal costs, insurance for fundraising events and the costs of advertising and promoting events it is virtually impossible to have every cent go to the projects.
Although the Lions and Lioness clubs in Dunnville are separate organizations, we do partner together on a number of fundraising events.
Everything We Accomplish Depends On Community Support !!!!!!
Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
