The Kansas Lions Band Foundation, Inc. was incorporated in 1984 for the purpose of raising monies to help support our State and International Bands. The Foundation fundraising activities include: percapta donations, bequests, Mid-Winter Rally auction, and collector pins. The KLBF takes great pride in supporting one of the Kansas Lions finest youth outreach projects, the Kansas Lions State and International Bands.
The Kansas Lions Sight Foundation is a public , non-profit, tax-exempt corporation. It was incorporated to provide an avenue whereby Lions and others, could donate funds that would then be disbursed for sight-related projects in Kansas. There are five main objectives of the Foundation: services for the visually impaired; screening for visual acuity and glaucoma, blood pressure, diabetes, and hearing; treatment of eye injuries and disease; educations; and eye research.
KLF was founded in 1999, formed to increase the level of community service and support through education, humanitarian, and charitable projects. Projects include the ALERT (disaster response) program, Lions Quest, Deaf and Hard of Hearing long term summer camp scholarships, Peace Poster contest, and Youth Exchange.
A new addition is the Kansas Lions Alert Team Emergency Grant Criteria and Application. The objective of the KLAT is to provide immediate emergency relief to the victims of a residence displacement. KLAT emergency funds are available for relief aid in the wake of any natural or manmade disaster that is not within the confines of a LCIF Emergency Grant where a person(s) is displaced from their home.
