Lions Clubs International Foundation Newsletter

Lions Clubs International Foundation

Dear Lions,

I’d like to begin my first newsletter by saying I am very excited for my new role as chairman of Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF).  Having witnessed the wonderful service projects that are being completed around the world, some with funding from LCIF, I am ready to serve in a whole new way by supporting our foundation.

LCIF supports life-changing service projects Lions complete all around the world, providing grant funding for your local and global humanitarian efforts. Your contributions to LCIF have helped people near and far by providing disaster relief, saving sight, supporting youth and meeting humanitarian needs.

This year, which leads to the foundation’s 50th anniversary, we have a goal to raise US$50 million to support Lions’ compassionate service in more ways than ever. Lions show strength in numbers. When we work together, we can accomplish great things. I am confident this year will be the best year LCIF has had yet!

I look forward to my year as chairman and hope to see Lions and LCIF working hard to create positive change in our world.

Lions Clubs International’s Centennial Celebration at Convention

Chicago ParadeMore than 30,000 Lions from all over the world arrived in Chicago last month to celebrate LCI’s 100th anniversary at the International Convention. Among the many events that took place, a highlight was watching the Special Olympics – Leos “Mission: Inclusion” Unified Basketball Clinic presented by NBA great, Sam Perkins. Leos and Special Olympics athletes participated in basketball drills and scrimmages while working together and learning more about one another.

Convention is a great time to thank the generous Lions who donated. A special thanks is in order for Melvin Jones Fellows, Progressive Melvin Jones Fellows, Melvin Jones Fellowship clubs, and those in the Humanitarian Partner program. This year, we raised one of the highest donation amounts in LCIF Convention history. Because of your contributions, communities all around the world will receive help when it is needed.

The Project for Elimination of Avoidable Childhood Blindness

A little girl receiving glasses.For more than 15 years, LCIF’s SightFirst program and the World Health Organization (WHO) have partnered to serve more than 127 million children by working to eliminate avoidable childhood blindness. The Project for Elimination of Avoidable Childhood Blindness is an initiative that began in 2001. Since then, 51 Child Friendly Eye Care Centers have been established and supported in 50 countries within Africa, the Americas, the Eastern Mediterranean, Europe, Southeast Asia, and the Western Pacific. The centers provide preventive, therapeutic, and rehabilitative eye care services for children aged 0-15 years. To date, more than 67,000 pediatric eye care staff have been trained, more than 13 million children have been screened for eye diseases, and more than 127 million children have received treatment. There have also been nearly one million education sessions for parents, caregivers and healthcare staff. Because of your donations to LCIF, millions of children have been given the chance to avoid childhood blindness.

Club LCIF Coordinators Position Update

optional-image-220x130.pngThe Club LCIF Coordinator is an ambassador for LCIF at the club level and is crucial to the promotion of our foundation. This person shares LCIF stories, motivates fellow Lions to support LCIF, and enables LCIF to advance its humanitarian work both locally and globally. Club LCIF Coordinators will be equipped with resources that will allow them to champion the goals of the foundation to Lions.

A new policy has been put into effect to help fill this vital role at the club level.  In addition to serving as mentors to the club president and vice presidents, immediate past club presidents will now serve as Club LCIF Coordinators.  If he or she is unable to serve in this capacity, the position may be filled by another club member.

Letter from LCI President to ADG Lary Garrison (and Dist. 37)

Dear Governor Lary,

Thanks so sincerely for all of your hard work in a District 37.  Although your District is not yet at growth for this year, you and the other Lions have worked hard to make your District even better, and you have worked to serve your communities.

I am writing you to ask your help and also to tell you about a way that your District can still be recognized for membership gains this year!  You have already proven that yours is a District with dedicated leaders.  Through your leadership, you have already contributed to our tremendous success this year.

I’m sure your already know that LCI is now larger than we have ever been during our 100 year history!  We broke the records this year!  But, I am sad to tell you that here in the United States, we are not yet at growth.  Nonetheless, it has been a great year in the US as we have worked toward gaining new members.  The last numbers I saw showed the US down by fewer than 800 members.  And that’s the best we’ve been in much longer than I can remember.

I’m writing you to ask you to help us get the US to growth during this Centennial year!  We have 9 more days to do it!  Won’t you make some contacts with the Club Presidents in your District and get them to help us?  This is a great opportunity for the Lions of the US to demonstrate our leadership once again.

As an additional incentive, I have already announced that in addition to recognizing Governors of Districts at growth for the year, we will also recognize Governors whose Districts grow DURING THE MONTH OF JUNE!  So this is a chance to your District to be recognized for your membership growth!

So please, make these last 9 days count for us in the US and also in your District.  Please keep up the great work so we can get more good members who will help us help more people in more communities.  Together we will continue to find those New Mountains to Climb!

I hope to see you at the Convention in Chicago!

Bob

Lions Clubs International President’s April 2017 Message

President’s Message

orange-underline-accent.png

Dear Lion,

We recently introduced our new global service framework, which is a key component of LCI Forward and reaching our goal of serving 200 million people per year by 2021.

Youth engagement is a cornerstone of our service framework and each of its five signature service areas. The future of service belongs to youth, and we have an opportunity to guide them as Lions. Encourage young people to volunteer with your club. Listen to their ideas. And give them meaningful leadership roles when they serve. Young people can be more than just volunteers—they can be our partners in service.

Here are three great ways you can start engaging youth in your community:

  • Reach out to a local high school or youth organization—offer to plan a joint service project, and consider funding it.
  • Invite youth to participate in your next service project—involve them in planning and give them meaningful roles.
  • Take it to the next level by exploring LCI’s youth programs—sponsor the Peace Poster Contest, get involved in the Youth Camp and Exchange program or start a Leo club.

However you choose to involve young people in your service activities, make sure to give them a voice and recognize their hard work and achievements. When you engage youth in service, you are investing in the future of your club and community.

Very truly yours,
Chancellor Bob Corlew

Great Falls Tribune: Let the Lions Roar

Great Falls Tribune STORY BY AMY GRISAK

Picking a project close to home is an excellent motivation for many people to step into a volunteer role. For Ronda Wiggers, joining the Lions Club made sense since her children
played in Lions Park at 2701 10th Ave. S. for years, and the organization did so much in her neighborhood.

“We do lots and lots for Lions Park, a place I’ve always enjoyed,” said Ronda, vice president of the Great Falls Lions Club. When she joined five years ago, the club finished the climbing wall project at the park, and it’s quickly become a favorite feature for kids of
all ages. With a stellar playground, pavilion and picnic tables set within an open and well-cared for park, it’s a favorite for many people in Great Falls.

“It’s always fun to see your hard work in the end,” she said of the children who love climbing on the rock practically every day and playing on the equipment.

Dear Lions and Leos,
We’re on our way to serving 200 million people per year by 2021—and we’ll reach that incredible goal by adding great new ways to serve! We’re introducing a new global service framework that builds on our first century of service and our history of serving sight.
Our new service framework focuses our efforts on five service areas: vision, hunger, the environment, pediatric cancer and diabetes. It gives Lions and Leos new ways to meet emerging humanitarian needs in their communities and around the world. As always, your club will decide how to best meet your community needs.

Diabetes Grants Available – Deadline to Apply April 21, 2017

An icon for diabetes. An icon for environment.An icon for hunger relief.  An icon for vision. An icon for pediatric cancer.

 

 

Lions are hearing more about Lions Clubs International’s The Global Service Framework goal of tripling our humanitarian impact by serving 200 million people per year by 2021. The Global Service Framework complements all of the great ways clubs serve locally, and gives Lions and Leos new opportunities to help meet the growing challenges facing humanity by focusing on the five areas of service shown in the icons above.

An icon for diabetes.Request for proposals

Out of the five program platforms diabetes was selected as the initial focal area and the LCIF Board of Trustees has approved funding for Lions/Leos to pilot diabetes prevention and control pilot projects under five select initiatives:

  • Diabetes Screenings
  • Community Health Activities
  • Support Groups
  • Diabetes Camps/Retreats
  • Community Recreational Facilities

The purpose of the pilot projects is not only to support experienced Lions/Leos in expanding their existing diabetes efforts, but also for LCI and LCIF to learn how Lions/Leos successfully plan and implement diabetes projects and to identify additional resources that are needed to enhance project impact.

With this request LCI/LCIF is asking Lions entities with previous experience on diabetes work to submit project proposals on the five initiatives outlined below. LCIF grant funding is available to support these projects. Involvement of Leos is encouraged. The selection process is competitive, and priority consideration for funding will be given to eligible proposals that 1) are geared at serving vulnerable populations in the community; 2) present unique and innovative approaches, and 3) demonstrate experienced Lions/Leos collaborating with Lions/Leos with no previous experience on diabetes work.

More about the Request for Proposals
