28 community based Lions Clubs of Southeastern Colorado have served their communities, the state, and the world with projects ranging from assisting the visually impaired to working with local youth, participating in medical missions, hosting environmental services, and disaster relief. In just the last few years we have screened over 9,000 children for vision and eye health problems (with an 11.3% rate of referral for ophthalmologist follow up) while also bringing in more than a quarter million dollars for wild fire victims. Our international foundation is top ranked by Charity Navigator. Join a club near you or start your own to find the joy in service to others!
LCIF Empowering Service
Challenges around the world continue to expand. The Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF) must continue to expand to meet the challenges. In order to provide greater service for today and in the future, LCIF is launching “Campaign 100: LCIF Empowering Service”. Campaign 100 is the most ambitious fundraising project in LCIF’s 50 year history. The goal is to raise $300 million in 3 years with the Campaign ending on June 30, 2021. If the goal is met, Lions will be able to serve over 200 million people. The funds will be used to increase worldwide service, fight diabetes and expand current causes (disaster relief, humanitarian needs, youth programs and vision projects). Big global issues need a big global effort. Campaign 100 provides the opportunity for individual Lions, Lions Clubs and Districts to come together to make a big global difference. Together, our gifts and donations to LCIF can make a brighter future for millions.
