Introducing a Capital Fundraising Campaign to Empower Your Service
Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), your global foundation, officially launched Campaign 100, LCIF: Empowering Service at Lions Clubs International Convention July 3. The significance behind the campaign name began 100 years ago, with the vision of Lions Clubs International Founder Melvin Jones.
Today, Lions still work toward Jones’ vision – to serve. Restoring sight and preventing blindness. Mobilizing disaster relief. Creating positive learning environments for kids. Serving the disabled,the elderly, the most vulnerable among us. No one Lion, club, or district can do these alone. But together, we can all #BE100.
As Lions reflect on a century of service and accomplishments, we also look to the future, to the next 100 years. We see that the needs of the world have never been greater. We see new challenges.
Journey to #BE100
In 2015, as many may recall, Lions Clubs International conducted a Global Service Assessment. That assessment identified five priority focus areas: diabetes, the environment, hunger, vision, and childhood cancer.
With these expanding global causes, LCIF recognized something extraordinary was needed to empower Lions’ service.
The most ambitious fundraising effort in LCIF history, Campaign 100 spans three years and seeks to raise US$300 million by June 30, 2021. Campaign 100 will empower Lions to #BE100, serve 200+ million people each year, and ensure Lions have resources to:
- Increase service impact in our focus areas of vision, youth, disaster relief, and humanitarian causes.
- Fight diabetes and improve the quality of life for those diagnosed.
- Expand our global causes by identifying areas of greatest need and opportunity within the broad causes of hunger, childhood cancer, and the environment.
