Commencing September 2017, the Elk Rapids Lions Club will be accepting Organizational Grant Request applications only now in the Fall for community projects that support the Club's mission of "serving the community."  Applications will only be accepted if they are received between September 1st and October 15th. These Organizational Grant Requests must be from groups that are in (or serve) the Elk Rapids area only. 

This system gives us the ability to proactively fundraise over and above our annual events as we become aware of special community needs.

Organizations should contact the club's Grant Committee Chair, Kim Ranger, to request an application or more information by email: or call 231-590-2985.  You can also download here an application to your computer.

Individual Medical and Emergency Assistance:

The Lions Club also accepts requests, and responds to emergency assistance from individuals for eyeglasses, hearing aids and other emergency-related needs throughout the year.

For those individual requests, contact Emergency Assistance Chair Bob Loper at or 231-264-9288, or President Kim Ranger at or 231-590-2985.
Names of individuals applying for assistance always remain anonymous.  Group and organizational projects supported by the Lions are publicly announced when they are provided.

The Elk Rapids Lions Club has been actively supporting community projects since 1969.
