The Lions Clubs of Lawrence Foundation is the philanthropic extension of the Lawrence Noon Lions Club and the River City Lions Club, of Lawrence, Kansas. All Lions clubs maintain separate administrative and project funds. (Every cent Lions raise through fundraising projects goes into the project fund.) The Lions Clubs of Lawrence have created a 501(C)(3) foundation, to handle the project funds for both clubs. This means all donations to the clubs are fully tax-deductible.
The Lions Clubs of Lawrence participate in international Lions projects through our support for LCIF, and we support statewide Lions initiatives. But a substantial portion of our expenditures are on local projects, mostly buying eyeglasses for local individuals who are in need.
