Lions Clubs International was founded in 1917 in Chicago, Illinois by a group of like-minded businessmen. Since that day, Clubs have traditionally been where individuals have joined together to give their time and efforts to improve communities and the world.
Today, there are 47,000 Lions Clubs worldwide in more than 200 countries and regions.
When Lions Clubs conduct fundraising activities, 100 percent of the net profits go back to charitable pursuits. The operations of the Club are funded entirely from Lions Club member dues, club raffles, and other internal events. Funds raised from the public are never used to offset club administrative functions.
