About Lions Club International 

Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization:  We have 1.3 million members in 45,000 clubs worldwide.

Lions are everywhere: We're active in more than 200 countries and geographic areas.

Lions have a dynamic history: We are best known for fighting blindness – it's part of our history as well as our work today. But we also volunteer for many different kinds of projects – including disaster relief – across many borders.

Lions serve youth: Our community projects often support local children and schools with new programs and resources. Internationally, we offer many programs, including our popular Peace Poster Contest.

Lions award grants: Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has awarded $610 million in grants to support Lions projects around the world. LCIF was also ranked the number one nongovernmental organization in a 2007 study by The Financial Times.

Lions are active: Our motto is "We Serve."

A Lion never wonders: "What can one person do to improve his or her community?" Because Lions are part of a global service network, we do whatever is necessary to help local communities.
