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
Lions Clubs International Foundation
District 6-SE Cabinet Meeting
April 17, 2021
Currently, “Campaign 100, Empowering Service Projects” has about 13 months left to reach the goal of raising $300,000,000 in donations. Funds raised so far are right around $200,000,000. The final push will be to raise $100,000,000 by June 30, 2022.
I would like to thank the clubs and individuals of District 6-SE that have donated to “Campaign 100”. The District total donations for the 2020-2021 Lions year are not as good as desired. Mostly because of the COVID-19 Pandemic that has caused financial difficulties for many including club fundraising programs. Although club donations are down, there has been an increase in individual donations. There are three clubs in District 6-SE that are “100% Participating Clubs” meaning each member has or will make a donation to LCIF.
Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) recently sent a “Club Toolkit for Campaign 100 Success” to all club secretaries. This toolkit should be used by clubs to better understand how Lions are changing the world through the work done by LCIF.
My goal for District 6-SE is to have all clubs donate a dollar amount per member. I would like to see District 6-SE become a “100% Participating District”. Please consider a making donation by going on line to the LCIF website or contact the club or district coordinator to help you make a donation.
Remember that helping people is why we become Lions and that LCIF expands helping others on a worldwide scale. LCIF, YOUR FOUNDATION, is impowering service around the world through “Campaign 100”; the most ambitious fundraising campaign in history.
I would like to visit your club and share information about LCIF Campaign 100 and the Colorado Lions Camp. I can provide your club with the amounts donated toward a Melvin Jones Fellow (MJF) Award for each member, the number of MJFs in your club, and how much money your club has in undesignated funds toward a MJF Award.
