Membership Development Grants

Our organization's impact hinges on the growth of our membership and retention of current members. To support recruitment and member satisfaction, the Lions Clubs International Membership Development Committee offers Membership Development Grants on a competitive basis. These funds support a wide variety of membership efforts and activities, from a unique membership drive to a team building exercise, to recruit more members and to improve the experience of current Lions.
