Support the Foundation

 

check  During these difficult economic times, it is our mission to give hope to any child in need.

  Through the direction and partnership with local Lions Clubs, the Foundation is currently issuing financial grants to promote projects that can change a child's life. For more information on our Grant Program, click here or on the link above.

  However, in order to fulfill these goals we need your continued support. Toward that goal, the Foundation coordinates many ongoing fund raising programs. The following is a brief description of several ways in which you can help us help these children. You can also click on the links below to find out more.

 

Supporting the Foundation By Honoring a special Lion

  The Foundation has created several programs which recognize outstanding service by a Lion or an individual, while also helping to support our cause. Click here or on the link below to find out more.

  Each year, one "Miracles Through Service Award" per district will be given to a deserving Lion that has been nominated by their District Governor. Each recipient will receive a unique beautiful medallion as well as a lapel pin and certificate.

  Throughout the year, any District Governor, Lions Club, or individual can also honor an “Everyday Hero” who makes Multiple District 20 a better place to live for children in need. By making a $300 donation to the Foundation you can nominate such an individual for the "Brandel - Murphy "Everyday Hero" Fellowship. The recipient will also receive a unique medallion, lapel pin, and a certificate that recognizes them for their humanitarian efforts. Individuals may not nominate themselves. And you don't have to be a Lion to be nominated for this honor, anyone who you feel is an "Everyday Hero" would qualify! To learn more about this program, just click here or on the link below.

  Since the Foundation's first year we have offered a memorial award to remember one of our founding Board members, PDG Marie Grosso while at the same time raise the funds to help the foundation she worked so tirelessly to help create. The PDG Marie Grosso Cornerstone Award, will continue to be offered for a limited time only. This is not only a unique way to honor a great Lion of MD20 but will continue to support the Foundation she worked so hard to help create. Click here or on the link below to find out more.
