Lions Clubs International

Lions Clubs were started in 1917, and became international with the charter of the Windsor Lions Club, Ontario Canada in 1920. Lions are groups of ordinary men and women that volunteer in their local communities through community-based projects, fundraisers.


Over the last 100 years, the kindness of Lions and Leos has multiplied across borders, oceans, and continents. With over 1.4 million members, we now have an opportunity to truly change our world. 


That’s why we’re uniting our global service around five areas of need. These Global Causes: Diabetes, Vision, Hunger, Environment, and Childhood Cancer present significant challenges to humanity, and we believe it’s our turn to meet them.
