DONATION AND RECOGNITION
LIONS CLUBS, as a voluntary service organization, receives contribution from its members and other benevolent donors and spends on different service activities. Funds entrusted to it support initiatives that impact communities and change lives through its chartered Clubs/outfit. The organization handles ‘donations and disbursements’ function of public money through its Foundation/Trust.
At DISTRICT LEVEL, we have established Trusts/Foundations, to mobilize funds for extending support on organization’s initiatives towards common good of the society through different clubs and district projects. Mobilized Fund on designated heads (e.g., as given under sub-group ‘Contribution’) are earmarked and spent on respective heads only.
At INTERNATIONAL LEVEL, we have ‘Lions Clubs International Foundation’ (LCIF), which grants, on average, US$30 million annually on improvement of peoples life around the world from combating vision problems, to responding to major catastrophes to providing valuable life skills to youth. In appreciation of Donors making LCIF’s achievements possible, there are a number of recognition programs.
Recognition varies depending upon level of support, and is available to individuals, clubs, districts and corporations. It can include pins, plaques, acknowledgement cards and other forms of appreciation. Recognizing Lions’ kindness is one small way LCIF can say a big thank you.
