The Vadnais Heights Lions Club Foundation was established to support the Vadnais Heights Lions Club and its numerous activities. This is an all-volunteer organization that shares in the goals and visions of the Lions Club International: “To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding.” The Foundation has been certified as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is “striving to improve the quality of life in our community through humanitarian services”. The Vadnais Heights Lions Club Foundation is committed to serving our community through many different ventures.


One of our main initiatives is the management and financing of the Vadnais Heights Community Food Program. In addition, we provide emergency medical, hearing aid and eye glass assistance to residents. We offer free vision screening. We also support community events such as Heritage Days, and Vadnais and the Annual Easter Egg Hunt.


The Vadnais Heights Lions Club Foundation is intended to help support:

• Vadnais Heights Community Food Shelf

• Annual Holiday Toy and Food Drive

• Spring and Fall waffle breakfast fundraisers

• Lions eye glass and hearing aid collections for recycling

• Local Scout troops

• Local seniors services
