Mission & Purpose

To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, and encourage and promote international understanding through Lions Clubs.


Lions Club has 1.3 million members in 45,000 clubs in more than 200 countries around the globe. Lions are a service organization which has made an impact from the local to international level with International sponsors endorsing many programs including those aimed at eradicating blindness in developing countries. Locally, many clubs help needy people get eyeglasses they couldn’t otherwise afford, they sponsor vision diabetes screening to identify people who may need further medical or optometric assistance, and help individuals with visual impairments in a variety of ways.

There are approximately 15 Lions Clubs in the Greater Cincinnati Area and each is autonomous in making decision about which requests for assistance to fund and/or respond to. You will be referred to the club/s in your locale to approach for assistance.


Each local club makes decision on a case by case basis depending on the needs of the individual and the club’s ability to help meet the need.
