Designated Grants

In addition to the grant programs for which Lions may apply, we award millions of dollars annually for other projects and programs that impact lives worldwide through designated grants.


Designated grants represent restricted funds for a particular cause. Funds are not applied to the general humanitarian grant fund and must support specific projects. Recent designated funds include refugee assistance in Europe and Lions’ measles initiative, One Shot, One Life.
