Lions Clubs International

Our Global Mission Statement

Empowering volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs.


Whilst we are autonomous and our focus is doing whatever is necessary to help our local community, all Lions are part of a global service network and through global initiatives can really make change happen fast and on a large scale.

Lions serve our local community – youth, elderly and anyone in between.

Lions International award grants. Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation has awarded more than $670 million, about £430 million, in grants to support Lions humanitarian projects around the world, including major projects such as LIBRA ( the Lions International Blood Research Appeal ) based at King’s College Hospital in London.   Since 1990 Lions have spent $346million on their SightFirst campaign to eradicate curable blindness throughout the world.

The Foundation was ranked the number one Non-Governmental Organization in a 2007 study. (Source:The Financial Times)

Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies and aiding in long-term reconstruction.
Our motto is “We Serve”.
