The University-Ballard Lions Foundation

The primary focus of support of the University Ballard Lions Foundation is to serve the Greater Seattle Community, giving hope and impacting lives through humanitarian service projects and grants with particular emphasis on sight and hearing.

Club members participate in annual fundraising to contribute funds to the University-Ballard Lions Foundation. In addition, the foundation receives an annual contribution from the Harry & Clare Cayo Wilson Charitable Trust for the purpose of supporting sight and hearing programs. 

Also note that the Foundation is part of a larger Lions community and will strive to support the needs identified within the Lions Multiple District 19 and Lions International.
