What do Lions do?

  • Lions around the world serve by improving the health and well-being of others, strengthening their communities and protecting the vulnerable.

  • We help our global neighbors through the support of our Foundation, Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF). LCIF has awarded more than US$1.1 billion in grants to support Lions’ humanitarian projects. In 2020, LCIF donated millions of dollars in emergency grant funds during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic to provide critical supplies and equipment to communities struggling with this health crisis.

  • Internationally, we empower youth through our Peace Poster Contest, youth camps and exchanges, and the Lions Quest program that has helped provide positive life skills to over 16 million students.

  • Last year, Lions helped more than 300 million people around the world through service, donations and advocacy work.

Who are Lions?

  • Our motto is “We Serve” and Lions put it into action every day. We’re caring men and women who come together to be the difference in our communities. We believe we can do so much more together than we can alone.

  • With Lions clubs in more than 200 countries and geographic areas, we serve all people and we are made up of all people. We believe that diversity is our strength. We appreciate individual and cultural differences, and we embrace the experiences and talents of others because together we are more.

Why should people be a Lion?

  • When you become a Lion, you become part of a local club and a global network of volunteers working together to make a difference.

  • A Lions club is a great place to develop your leadership skills and put them into action. Plus, you’ll get first-class training and great resources from our global organization.

  • A Lions club is a group of people like you who’ve decided to take action and help others. Lions form unique friendships and meaningful connections that can last a lifetime.

  • There is nothing quite like the feeling of making someone’s life better.
