Core Messages

We Serve where we live. We are ready whenever and however our communities need us.

We are global. We are the largest service club organisation on earth. We bring unprecedented reach and compassion to our service.

We give 100 percent. Every penny raised locally goes back into the community. We help out our global neighbours through the generous support of Lions Club International Foundation.  

We do it ourselves. We do whatever is necessary to help our communities and our global community. Whether that means raising money or rolling up our sleeves, we do whatever it takes and we do it all on our time.

We have served humanity for more than a century. Lions Club International is one of the greatest story stories on hearth. For over 100 years, Lions have been changing lives and making the world a better place for all. Local communities depend on their clubs because we are trusted friends and neighbours who have a history of putting others first, and the Lions International name inspire trust.

We are a good company. We have fun in our club. We treat new members like old friends, and we know that there’s a special bond that unites Lions around the world.

We are open. We are generous people who want to help, and we are always looking for more caring people who wants to make a difference with us.

We are taking on global challenges together. Lions are serving locally to meet needs in their communities, and we are uniting globally around some of the largest challenges facing humanity: diabetes, environment, hunger, vision and childhood cancer. And we are building on our tradition of supporting youth by developing new ways to engage them as partners and leaders in service.
