Diabetes Grants

The LCIF Diabetes Grant Program can help develop community environments that inspire and support healthy lifestyles and provide education about diabetes and prediabetes. LCIF Diabetes grants can increase access to diabetes care and enhance existing diabetes centers to provide greater service to the community.

About Diabetes Grants


Diabetes Grants support diabetes youth camps and retreats, diabetes screening activities with comprehensive follow-up care plans, infrastructure and equipment acquisition for existing diabetes care facilities and training of professionals and community diabetes educators.

Lions districts are eligible for grants up to US$150,000; Lions multiple districts are eligible for grants up to US$250,000. Watch the video to learn more about a diabetes youth camp in Romania. Lion Ion Antonio Tache, from the Ploiești Lions Club shares, "without LCIF's support for this project, it would not have been possible for the Lions clubs of Romania to consolidate their efforts to fight diabetes".
