Board of Directors

The Minnesota Lions Vision Foundation has a 22-person board of directors composed of Multiple District 5M Lions International members in good standing. Vision Foundation board members give fiscal oversight to the Lions Gift of Sight eye bank and report on eye bank activities to the Lions of Minnesota. They promote the eye bank and other sight–related endeavors at the University of Minnesota to fellow Lions and to their communities. In addition, directors regularly review grant requests from the University’s Lions Children’s Eye Clinic and Lions Macular Degeneration Research and Rehabilitation Center, as well as University research projects at the Lions Research Building.
