Where does the money go? How much donated money goes to the Lions club's charitable causes?
We give 100 percent!
100% of the profits generated from our projects are donated back to the local community through our Glen Ellyn Lions Foundation and to the Lions Clubs International through the LCIF. We cover all costs from our own dues, ensuring that ALL donated funds go to the many charitable causes we support. Transparency and accountability operate at every level; in fact, The Financial Times has ranked Lions Clubs International Foundation the "best among non-government organizations worldwide with which to work."
Since 1917, Lions clubs have offered people the opportunity to give something back to their communities. From involving members in projects as local as cleaning up an area park or as far-reaching as bringing sight to the world's blind, Lions clubs have always embraced those committed to building a brighter future for their community.
Our programs are continually changing to meet new needs and greater demands, but our mission has never wavered: "We Serve."
We Serve - more than a motto - it's who we are.
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.
