Lions International Purposes

    • To Organize, charter and supervise service clubs to be known as Lions clubs. 
    • To Coordinate the activities and standardize the administration of Lions clubs. 
    • To Create and foster a spirit of understanding among the peoples of the world. 
    • To Promote the principles of good government and good citizenship. 
    • To Take an active interest in the civic, cultural, social and moral welfare of the community. 
    • To Unite the clubs in the bonds of friendship, good fellowship and mutual understanding. 
    • To Provide a forum for the open discussion of all matters of public interest; provided, however, that partisan politics and sectarian religion shall not be debated by club members. 
    • To Encourage service-minded people to serve their community without personal financial reward, and to encourage efficiency and promote high ethical standards in commerce, industry, professions, public works and private endeavors.

Lions Code of Ethics

    • To Show my faith in the worthiness of my vocation by industrious application to the end that I may merit a reputation for quality of service.
    • To Seek success and to demand all fair remuneration or profit as my just due, but to accept no profit or success at the price of my own self-respect lost because of unfair advantage taken or because of questionable acts on my part.
    • To Remember that in building up my business it is not necessary to tear down another's; to be loyal to my clients or customers and true to myself.
    • Whenever a doubt arises as to the right or ethics of my position or action towards others, to resolve such doubt against myself.
    • To Hold friendship as an end and not a means. To hold that true friendship exists not on account of the service performed by one another, but that true friendship demands nothing but accepts service in the spirit in which it is given.
    • Always to bear in mind my obligations as a citizen to my nation, my state, and my community, as to give them my unswerving loyalty in word, act, and deed. To give them freely of my time, labor and means.
    • To Aid others by giving my sympathy to those in distress, my aid to the weak, and my substance to the needy.
    • To Be Careful with my criticism and liberal with my praise; to build up and not destroy.

LCIF: Lions Serving the World Community

- and Your Community

Lions Clubs International Foundation, the official charitable foundation of Lions Clubs International, brings help, hope and healing to the world.

LCIF enables Lions to tackle global problems such as blindness and hearing loss and respond to major catastrophes such as earthquakes and floods. But LCIF also helps Lions serve their local communities by partnering with them to build schools, health clinics and vocational training centers for the disabled.

LCIF helps people to lead healthier and more productive lives. It combats preventable blindness through cataract surgeries, building and equipping eye hospitals and clinics, training eye health care professionals and raising awareness of eye diseases.

LCIF nurtures the potential of youth by building schools and supporting the life-skills program Lions Quest. It also promotes health by building and equipping medical clinics, serves the elderly by constructing senior citizen centers, empowers the disabled by supporting vocational programs and helps victims of disasters through rebuilding projects and short-term relief.
