Lions Quest Grants

Lions Quest Grants aid the implementation and expansion of Lions Quest in schools around the world. Typical project activities include workshops to train educators, the purchase of textbooks and materials for workshops, program evaluation and research. Grants can go toward the initial implementation of Lions Quest or the expansion of an existing Lions Quest program.

 

The Application Process


Lions Quest Program Grant

Amount:

Up to $25,000 for sub-districts or $100,000 for multi-districts; 3-to-1 matching grants.

Application:

Due 90 days prior to the Lions Quest advisory meeting – mid-May (for August approval) or mid-October (for January approval).

Purpose:

To expand existing Lions Quest programs. The grants help expand coverage of Lions Quest in multiple, single, or sub-districts where the program is active but not reaching a considerable number of schools, or to implement a pilot of the Lions Quest program not yet available in that county or district. Essentially, the grant will enable Lions to greatly expand the reach of Lions Quest, to “fill-in-the-gap” in areas where the program is needed but not yet available. Funds may be used to:

  • Train teachers and trainers
  • Purchase textbook materials
  • Pay for some administrative expenses


Note: The LCIF grant is not intended to fund existing Lions Quest activity, so any clubs currently financing the program should continue to do so.

Applications:

No deadlines – rolling applications.

Purpose:

To introduce Lions Quest to a community. The grant is intended to jump start Lions Quest activities in a new area by introducing the program to community members. Funds are used for informational seminars for Lions, community members and/or educators.
