San Geronimo Valley Lions Club
Grant Program


San Geronimo Valley Lions proudly provides financial support to local charities and needy causes thru its ‘grant program’.  All of the money collected throughout the year goes to either financial grants or to fund service projects such as building new bus shelters.

Effective 2015, we have aligned our grant process to better reflect our income cycle, February Crab Feed and 4th of July parade, flea market and BBQ.
