From Eyeglasses to Estate Gift

Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) recently received a US$2.8 million estate gift from an anonymous donor. After learning from a trusted friend and financial advisor that eyeglasses that no longer worked well could be donated to a local Lions club, this generous donor dropped off used eyeglasses in the club’s eyeglasses collection bin. The experience ignited the donor’s passion to support Lions’ efforts serving blind and visually impaired people and solidified the decision to include LCIF in an estate plan.

When you include Lions Clubs International Foundation LCIF in your estate plan, your generosity ensures we can continue to bring volunteers together to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace, and promote international understanding. Thank you for ensuring that LCIF can impact our communities well into the future. Visit to contact an LCIF planned giving specialist.
