About Lions Club


Lions Clubs-Ready to help, Worldwide

Whenever a Lions Club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better.

That’s because we help where is needed-in our own communities and around the world-with unmatched integrity and energy.

The World’s Largest Service Club Organization

Our 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world’s largest service club organization. We’re also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With Children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat and with people we may never meet.

Local Community Projects

Lions are active. Our Motto is “We Serve”. Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities.

Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work towards their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local community projects and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness.

Lions serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schools through scholarships, recreation and mentoring. Internationally, we offer many programs, including the Peace Poster Contest, Youth Camps, and Exchange and Lion Quest. And our Leo program provides personal development through youth volunteer opportunities. There are approximately 144,000 Leos and 5,700 Leo Clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide.

Lions award grants. Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation has awarded more than US$700 Million in grants to support Lions humanitarian community projects around the world. Together, our foundation and 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.
