Dear Lions,

What seemed like routine flood warnings to the community of Rapid City, South Dakota, USA, soon turned into ravaging floods that took the lives of more than 200 people, left more than 5,000 people homeless, and created more than US$100 million in property damage. Local Lions did what would soon become our legacy, being among the first to arrive with relief. This event also marked the first grant ever awarded by Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), US$5,000 to help the community rebuild after the catastrophic floods.

Since then, every day, LCIF works to fulfill its mission: “To support the efforts of Lions clubs and partners in serving communities locally and globally, giving hope and impacting lives through humanitarian service projects and grants.” Serving alongside many dedicated Lions, LCIF has made a significant impact on the world. In fact, I am proud to announce LCIF has awarded more than 13,000 grants totaling over US$1 billion since being founded in 1968.

We reached this milestone through our continuous efforts to support Lion-led initiatives in the areas of sight, youth, disaster relief, and other humanitarian initiatives. Every day, Lions are working to make a difference. Whether you are helping a grandparent see their grandchild for the first time, educating school children in your town, cleaning up a community after a flood, or working to end measles, you are making this world a better place.

As we prepare to celebrate LCIF’s 50th anniversary, look for messages about the impact that this US$1 billion has on the world. Watch this video to learn how LCIF is changing lives for students in the Philippines who are visually impaired.

Own a Limited-Edition Lions Clubs Centennial Commemorative Coin2017

    

2017-coin-silv-prf-pkg.jpg
Our Centennial Commemorative Coin went on sale January 18, 2017. The first week of sales was encouraging, with a total of 30,456 coins sold. But sales for week #2 dropped considerably from week #1, to just over 8,000 coins. If sales continue to decline in the first 60 days, the U.S. Mint may cease production of our Centennial silver dollar as minting additional coins is based entirely on sales expectations.

We can’t let that happen, and here’s why. Once the U.S. Mint has surpassed the break-even point of the program (approximately 200,000 coins), US$10 is authorized to be paid to LCIF for every coin sold. If we sell all 400,000 coins of our planned mintage, US$4 million will be given to LCIF to support our global humanitarian initiatives. Just imagine how many more people we could help!

With your help, we can make this program a success! Purchase your coin today from Lions Club Supplies or the United States Mint.

 


Lions Quest Grants Approved in January

At the Lions Quest Advisory Committee meeting in January, the LCIF Board of Trustees approved eight grants totaling more than US$360,000 to expand Lions Quest in five countries. In addition, the Committee approved funding to broaden the successful collaboration with the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC); LCIF and the UNODC will now expand our work to include Central America.

District 49-A in Alaska, USA, received a US$100,000 grant to implement Lions Quest: Skills for Adolescence in all Anchorage middle schools. Over the next two years, approximately 500 teachers will be trained to use the program with their students. Lions are leading the project with support from a local bank to fund student materials. Way to go, Lions!
