Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) was founded in 1968 as the charitable arm of Lions Clubs International to take its mission to new heights by tackling global problems, and assisting Lions with large-scale local humanitarian projects. LCIF’s history is filled with impactful projects; meaningful partnerships; and the kindness, compassion, and tireless efforts of Lions. Every day, LCIF works “To empower Lions clubs, volunteers, and partners to improve health and well-being, strengthen communities, and support those in need through humanitarian services and grants that impact lives globally, and encourage peace and international understanding.”
LCIF Australia has a proud history of achievement in Disaster and Emergency Relief, Medical Research and Community Service. Together with LCIF and Lions of Australia, we were at the coalface for Cyclone Tracy, bushfires, and the Queensland floods.
We assist with local community fundraising for special causes and help with the development and building of local parks, community venues, and sporting centres.
Our Expanding Focus Areas
We help provide healthy meals for the hungry and work to establish strategies and greater capacity for communities in which food is scarce.
Across the globe, too many children are being affected by cancer. We’re helping Lions establish programs and provide greater service and access to care for those diagnosed—giving hope to them and their families.
We are a world leader in the effort to prevent avoidable blindness, and we’re diligently working with Lions clubs and local partners to help provide the local capacity building, training, medications and treatment needed for those with eye diseases and to provide disability rehabilitation and education for all.
We are committed to providing youth and young adults with opportunities to succeed. The Lions Quest program provides young people and their educators with tools to make positive choices, resist drugs and alcohol, learn through service and become healthy young men and women.
When disaster strikes, we respond. We provide funding to address preparedness and immediate needs that allow Lions and their partners to be among the first on the scene in the wake of the world’s most devastating hurricanes, earthquakes, floods and other disasters.
Lions take action in their communities, working face-to-face with the people they serve. We support the wide variety of humanitarian efforts implemented and coordinated by Lions and give grants to increase their scale and effectiveness
We are working with Lions to preserve our planet, knowing that the health of our local communities and environments affects us all. Our goal is to help establish a sustainable future for generations to come.
