"LCIF, A GREAT TOOL FOR FINANCING OUR
"Considering setting FOUNDATION OF OUR OWN
My Dear Friends,
Two months already flow of our mandate.
I wish through this second letter, talk to you about our
reason for being, what characterizes us and the pride of
belonging to the association, ie, service to the community
or what we commonly call works.
Whenever a Lions club is working on a task, the
problems fade and the life of communities improves.
Why this result? Because we offer our assistance to all
those in need in our own communities and around the
world with unmatched integrity and energy.
We do this through our own efforts on the one hand and
the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) other.
The Lions Clubs International Foundation supports and
develops programs to help poor people around the world.
Thanks to the dedication and hard work of Lions, LCIF is
I remember you from other subsidies, standard LCIF
grants that meet a variety of needs of the community
including the construction of schools and hospitals,
homes for the elderly and the development of training
programs. The project must exceed the scope of
traditional activities fundraising clubs and / or district and
must have the support of several clubs in the district.
Moreover, LCIF provides grants to finance actions Lions
districts in the development and implementation of large
humanitarian projects. These grants help Lions to extend
and enhance their impact on the local community and the
global community in order to help a larger number of
poor people around the world.
The Foundation provides support in four areas:
• Eye protection
• Youth Services
• Assistance to victims of disasters
• Humanitarian Actions
Protection of views
Since 1990, the Sight First program is available to those
who need eye care of the quality. With Sight First, more
than 30 million people have improved their eyesight or
regain the use of their eyes.
The Youth Services
Over the past 25 years, 12 million young people in 66
countries have benefited from the teachings of Lions
Quest, our development program for youth from
kindergarten to the end.
Aid to disaster victims
In disasters, Lions meet immediate needs by providing
food, water and housing using funds allocated by LCIF.
For large-scale disasters, the Foundation continues to
support communities so that they can rebuild in the
LCIF involved in various humanitarian efforts such as
helping to build homes for the disabled, the organization
of vision screenings for Special Olympics athletes and
the fight against measles.
Millions of people worldwide have received assistance
through 10,263 grants from the Foundation totaling more
than $ 729 million. This number continues to increase in
part through grants from foundations, corporations,
governments and individuals not members of the Lions.
However, the vast majority of LCIF funding comes from
generous donations from Lions clubs and individual
LCIF is a great tool to assist us in carrying out our work.
To address the contribution that we make, I call each
country to set its own foundation at our District 403 A2.
The foundation is the act by which one or more persons
or entities decide the irrevocable assignment of property,
rights or resources to make a work of general interest and
This "irrevocable assignment" is the guarantor of the
continuity of the foundation as well as the property given
or bequeathed cannot be returned.
How is created a foundation?
foundation, a college co-opted members chosen for their
expertise in the field of action of the foundation and
college members ensure law enforcement that the
foundation is obliged to abide by its constitution.
The importance of staffing affects the life of the
foundation since the income of the latter are the main
resources. Unlike an association, it is not paying
What are the characteristics of a foundation?
Recognized charitable foundation has the legal capacity
to receive donations:
• manual gifts that allow tax deductions to donors within
the limits set by law;
• donations by deed also giving rise to tax deductions to
donors, the foundation enjoying special regime for
exemption from inheritance free of charge;
• the bequests by will also give rise to exemptions in
inheritance for free.
It may call for public donations.
So I appeal to the Presidents of the Region to support and
take ownership of the project to bring it to its realization
with the help of Past District Governors, Past Presidents
of the Board of Governors and Past Officers and Officials
at all levels.

A foundation exists from its recognition utility which is
granted by the administrative authority of each country.
What are the conditions?
The key criteria are:
• the public interest nature of the object of the foundation;
• an initial endowment income should enable the
financing of actions that the foundation intends to

The Lions year continues and our friend Lion Godefroy
Chekete is laying the groundwork for his governorship
innovating for District 403 A2 exception ......
While all regions are activated, prepare and organize to
welcome an official visit, the Region 31 was pleasantly
surprised to receive a message announcing a "nonformal" visit of the Governor in preparation of his next
official visit. This approach is new and highly innovative
especially as Liberia is also visiting.
It is for him to inquire about the realities on the ground,
share directly with local officials to find ways to lend a
tone to a few clubs who need help, support and especially
motivation. Congratulations Governor!
