Lions Clubs International Foundation’s (LCIF) “Campaign 100” stands for 100 years of service, 100% membership participation to raise funds in an amount of $100 per member. The goal is to raise $300 million over a 3 year period totaling $300 per member over three years.

With this money, Lions will be able to serve over 200 million people. Campaign 100 has been initiated to support eight areas of service worldwide. They are; fighting diabetes, providing food for the hungry, protecting the environment, vision projects, disaster relief, fighting pediatric cancer, humanitarian needs, and youth programs.

Lions are asked to provide funds for these big global issues. So, check your club treasury, check your wallet, and check your neighbor’s wallet to see if there may be money available for LCIF. Other ways to help would e to honor a club member with a Melvin Jones Fellow (MJF) Award, become an “LCIF Model Commitment” club or begin a “Contributing Member” account. If you can donate $200 per year, in five years you would be a Melvin Jones Fellow.

I gave my wife Lion Donna a Melvin Jones Fellow for her birthday last November. Granted, this gift may not have been accepted as well as pair of diamond earrings but her plaque hangs proudly in our home.

Using the “LCIF Target Number” based on district size and amount needed to fund Campaign 100, District 6-SE is asked to contribute $43,492. To date this year, contributions totaling $3,623.75 have been made. District 6-SE has a long way to go but if we could come up with $15,000 this year, it would be greatly appreciated.

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 your members have donated toward their MJF Award, the number of MJFs in your club, and how much money your club has in undesignated funds toward a MJF Award.

Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has launched an aggressive fund raising campaign titled; Campaign 100, the 100 stands for 100 years of service, 100% membership participation to raise funds in an amount that equals $100 per member. Currently, only about 6% of Lions give to LCIF. 

The goal is to raise $300 million in 3 years which makes a total of $300 per member over a three year period. The leadership of LCIF realizes that every member is not able to donate $100 every year over a three year period and that some members will donate way more than $100 per year. Along with the larger donations, LCIF is asking the Lions membership to seek other sources of funding such as LCIF fundraising projects, humanitarian grants, bequeaths (put LCIF in your will), humanitarian donations by non Lions members and any other way to generate funds for LCIF.

With this money, Lions will be able to serve over 200 million people. Campaign 100 has been initiated to support eight areas of service worldwide. They are; fighting diabetes, providing food for the hungry, protecting the environment, vision projects, disaster relief, fighting pediatric cancer, humanitarian needs, and youth programs.

Lions are asked to provide funds for these big global issues. There are several ways to help; give a Melvin Jones Fellow Award to a deserving Lion, volunteer to be your clubs LCIF Coordinator, become a “Contributing Member” or sponsor a club project to support LCIF. Lion Donna recently received her Melvin Jones Fellow Award. I have been donating $200 per year over the past 5 years in order to present her with a Melvin Jones Award on her birthday last November. 

I would like to visit your club and share information about LCIF and the Colorado Lions Camp.  I can provide your club with the amounts your members have donated toward their Melvin Jones Fellow (MJF) Award, the number of MJFs in your club, and how much money your club has in undesignated funds toward a MJF Award.

 Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) is the non-profit arm of Lions Club International.  I refer to LCIF as an arm since it does a lot of the heavy lifting for worldwide Lions’ projects.  LCIF has launched a new initiative called Campaign 100 to support these projects.


Campaign 100 is the most ambitious fundraising project in LCIF’s 50 year history.  The goal is to raise $300 million in 3 years which breaks down to about $100 per member per year.  That makes a total of $300 per member over a three year period.  With this money, Lions will be able to serve over 200 million people.  


Campaign 100 has been initiated to support the five new LCI service areas as well as the three long term LCI initiatives.  The funds will be used to increase worldwide service for fighting diabetes, providing food for the hungry, protecting the environment, vision projects, disaster relief, fighting pediatric cancer, humanitarian needs, and youth programs. 


Lions are asked to provide funds for these big global issues.  There are several ways to help; give a Melvin Jones Fellow Award to a deserving Lion, volunteer to be your clubs LCIF Coordinator, become a “Contributing Member” or hold a fundraiser for LCIF.  Lion Donna just received her Melvin Jones Fellow Award.  I have been $200 per year over the past 5 years in order to present her Melvin Jones Award for her birthday this month.


I would like to visit your club and share information about LCIF and the Colorado Lions Camp.  I can provide your club with the amounts your members have donated toward their Melvin Jones Fellow (MJF) Award, the number of MJFs in your club, and how much money your club has in undesignated funds toward a MJF Award.

Campaign 100 is the most ambitious fundraising project in LCIF’s 50 year history.  The goal is to raise $300 million in 3 years.  The time span is from July 1, 2018 to 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 programs (disaster relief, humanitarian needs, youth programs and vision projects).


Lions Clubs International presented a new service vision for the future in 2017.  The new service vision includes five global humanitarian challenges.  They are; vision, diabetes, hunger, environment and pediatric cancer.  In order to address these challenges, LCIF will need additional funding.


Campaign 100 has been initiated to support the five LCI service areas.  Lions are asked to pool their resources to tackle these big global issues.  There are several ways to help; give a Melvin Jones Fellow Award to a deserving Lion, volunteer to be your clubs LCIF Coordinator, become a “Contributing Member” or hold a fundraiser for LCIF.
