LCIF Approves US$3.2 Million in Grants at June 2008 Board Meeting

Oak Brook, Illinois, USA--Nearly US$3.2 million in grants was approved at the June 2008 LCIF Board Meeting. A total of 47 grants were awarded to Lions clubs all over the world to assist many humanitarian projects.

This includes 11 Core 4 grants to construct homes with Habitat for Humanity, expand low vision and diabetes programs and a US$200,000 to Lions of Sweden for an LCIF-Sweden tent project to provide tent housing to relief workers and victims left homeless from the earthquake in China.

LCIF also approved two major catastrophe grants: US$50,000 for flooding relief in Iowa, USA and US$500,000 for relief in China. This is in addition to the US$500,000 initial major catastrophe grant awarded for China relief in May.

The complete list of approved grants is available online.

Lions Clubs International Foundation provides grant funding to Lions districts for large-scale humanitarian projects too extensive for Lions to finance on their own. LCIF is the charitable arm of Lions Clubs International, the largest service club organization in the world with 1.35 million members in 206 geographic areas and countries. The Foundation aids Lions in making a greater impact in their local communities, as well as around the world. LCIF was recently ranked the number one NGO in a Financial Times study. Through LCIF, Lions ease pain and suffering and bring healing and hope to people worldwide. For more information, visit http://www.lcif.org/.
