Highest Ranking Awarded to Foundation from Charity Evaluator

OAK BROOK, Illinois, USA, October 14, 2009 – Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) recently received the highest ranking possible from Charity Navigator, demonstrating LCIF’s commitment to being a leading foundation.

An updated review from the independent charity evaluator awarded LCIF four stars. The top ranking means that LCIF exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in its cause. More than 5,400 of America’s largest charities are ranked on the Web site. Rankings are based on a number of factors related to organization efficiency and capacity.

The foundation has a history of recognition for its effectiveness and efficiency in order to maximize humanitarian service to those in need. In 2007, LCIF was named the number one non-governmental organization (NGO) worldwide with which to partner. The foundation came in first for its accountability, program execution, communications, program adaptability and partnerships among 100 international organizations in the independent review.

Supporting excellent humanitarian programs, providing excellent customer service to our donors and being a leader in fiscal responsibility is not only part of the foundation’s mission, but also what sets LCIF apart from other charities worldwide.


Lions Clubs International Foundation is the charitable arm of Lions Clubs International. Established in 1968, LCIF has been involved with blindness prevention and treatment for more than 15 years through the SightFirst program. LCIF was ranked by a Financial Times study as the #1 non-governmental organization with which to partner. Learn more at
