LCIF – Lions Clubs International Foundation – the world’s largest charitable foundation – OUR FOUNDATION – works with World Health and other pharmaceutical groups who provide assistance, drugs at cost and receives support from other large foundations.
LCF/LCIF – Lions of Canada Fund for LCIF is the Canadian arm of LCIF and donors receive a Canadian tax receipt – the amount is converted to US dollars and credited to the individual at LCIF – when $1,000.00 US has been reached, a subsequent MJF award (pin) requested – not automatically provided.
A5 has received far more in grants for medical equipment, etc. over the years than we have donated – we encourage our Clubs to financially support LCIF – we are part of a worldwide organization. Fortunately we don’t routinely experience major disasters – however, we are only a hot dry summer away from a major forest fire, or tornado.

PS – Every Governor in areas hit by both Hurricane Harvey and Irma as well as Mexico for Hurricane Katia and the earthquake, has been able to ask for a $10,000.00 emergency grant; and each Multiple District Council will have asked for a ‘major disaster’ grant from LCIF – that’s Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and all of the Caribbean Island in addition to the requests from other areas in the world who have suffered recent storm related catastrophes in the last month.
