Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) is the charitable arm of Lions Clubs International, the world’s largest service club organization. Serving more than 1.4 million Lions, working with 47,000 clubs in 200+ countries globally, LCIF has funded humanitarian service to build a more promising future for world citizens. Since 1968, LCIF has awarded more than $1 billion in grants, helping combat vision problems, provide valuable life skills to youth, respond to major catastrophes, and build programs to address the needs of at-risk and vulnerable populations. LCIF is also working to reduce the prevalence of diabetes and improve quality of life for those living with the disease and is expanding its global causes to include childhood cancer, hunger, and the environment while raising funds to empower even more service from Lions.

As challenges facing our world expand, so must our capacity to combat them. To build a future of promising even greater service LCIF has embarked on our most ambitious fundraising effort to date, Campaign 100, empowering Lions to serve hundreds of millions more people by:

  • Increasing service impact;
  • Fighting diabetes; and
  • Expanding global causes

These are not things that any one Lion, club, or district can do alone. But together, we can. We are currently looking for a Global Grants Specialist who’s focus will be on LCIF grants in the US and Latin America to join our team and rise to the challenge of empowering service.
