Minnesota Lions Vision Foundation
The Minnesota Lions Vision Foundation has been working to help the blind and visually impaired since 1960. Through our support of Lions Gift of Sight (formerly Minnesota Lions Eye Bank), our collaboration with the University of Minnesota’s Department of Ophthalmology, and our work collecting and distributing used eyeglasses, the Foundation helps countless people every day.
The Foundation is affiliated with Lions Clubs International, the largest service club organization in the world, having 45,000 clubs and 1.35 million members worldwide. Founded in 1917, Lions Clubs International is best known for fighting blindness. In addition to helping in their communities, Lions members conduct vision screenings, equip hospitals and clinics, distribute medicine, and raise awareness of eye disease.
Lions have a mission to provide vision for all, and the Minnesota Lions Vision Foundation is proud to work hand-in-hand with Lions Clubs International.
