LCIF CAMPAIGN 100
What is Campaign 100, and why has
Otley Lions Club participated?
Lions Clubs International Foundation is the primary funding source for Lions’ projects worldwide. Through the more than US$1 billion in grants it has provided since 1968, LCIF has enabled Lions and clubs to exponentially expand their service and carry out more life-altering missions globally.
Recent research reveals fewer than 10% of Lions make direct donations to LCIF. Did you know that in many parts of the world, LCIF provides more in grants than it receives in donations from Lions and clubs there?
Campaign 100: LCIF Empowering Service is a comprehensive capital campaign raising money to expand Lions’ ability to help those in need today and for the next 100 years. While the campaign’s financial goal is US$300 million, the ultimate goal is Lions’ ability to serve hundreds of millions of people by:
Increasing our impact in vision, youth, disaster relief, and humanitarian efforts.
Fighting the global epidemic of diabetes.
Expanding efforts in childhood cancer, hunger, and the environment.
100% of donations make a tremendous impact on the lives of those who need help most. Model Clubs help ensure Lions are able to respond to the immense needs of the world, and they prepare Lions Clubs International for a new century of service. Funds raised from an average-size Model Club may make impacts like these:
Providing 300 cataract surgeries
Vaccinating 15,000 children against measles
Providing immediate relief for 600 people in the wake of a natural disaster
Providing screenings for 2,700 people at risk for diabetes
Purchasing equipment to help 1,200 children with cancer
Providing food for 2,100 hungry people
Giving 2,100 people access to clean water
