Vision Foundation Projects
Minnesota Lions Vision Foundation helps improve vision by providing fiscal oversight and operating funds for the Minnesota Lions Eye Bank, by raising funds for University of Minnesota Department of Ophthalmology priorities, by educating the public about eye donation, and by supporting vision-related projects such as used eyeglass recycling. The Minnesota Lions Eye Bank is the foundation’s oldest project, and other University of Minnesota collaborations followed under the umbrella of the Lions Sight Program. The foundation also collects used eyeglasses throughout the state and makes them available for humanitarian missions. And they annually sponsor an all-star baseball tournament that raises funds for pediatric ophthalmology research. Click to learn more about our current projects.
