Be a Virginia Gateway Lions Club Supporter

Become A Lion

Lions make a difference in our communities and in the lives of the people we serve. Lions are givers and care about others. Here’s a look at some of the great benefits of being a Virginia Gateway Lion.
1) The family and fellowship in service – Service isn’t just meaningful. It’s fun and should include families and children. We build new friendships in our club and new connections in our communities. We laugh. We bond. We serve, and we do it with a smile and an open heart.
2) Opportunities to lead – Lions are leaders in their community, organizing projects that meet real needs. You have opportunities to become a club officer so you can put your leadership skills to work for the club. Lions International offers online and in-person training that can take your leadership to the next level so you can learn, lead and grow.
3) Tools to put your kindness in action – A great project takes great planning. Service Project Planners give you the tools to serve global causes right in your local community.
4) A global Foundation that magnifies your service impact – Lions have access to local, state level, and international foundations that can provide grant funding that helps Lions take on special projects that can bring lasting change. 
5) Being a part of something big – Lions are a big family. A really big family. We are 1.4 million men and women in 48,000 clubs in nearly every country on earth. We are changing our communities, club by club. And together we are changing the world.
6) Tech made just for Lions – Lions are always on the go. That’s why there are digital tools avaialble to make it easier to be a Lion and manage your club. 
7) You get when you give – Did you know that helping others actually helps you? A recent article in Psychology Today states that, “Research has found many examples of how doing good, in ways big or small, not only feels good, but also does us good.” Volunteering improves our happiness, health and sense of well-being, and decreases symptoms of depression. Giving is a win-win!
8) That ah-ha moment – Every Lion joins a club, but every member has a story about the moment they truly became a Lion. That day when you helped someone who had nowhere else to turn. The tears of joy. The heartfelt thanks. The hope you restored through your kindness. That’s why we’re Lions.
