Mission Statement

The Vision of the Lions of Illinois Foundation is to create a permanent vehicle for the delivery of programs and services to the visually and hearing impaired.






Addressing the Lions Convention in 1925, Helen Keller made a challenge that they become

"Knights of the Blind in the Crusade against Blindness."

Today, with nearly 500 Clubs in Illinois, we continue to try to meet that challenge and more in every corner of Illinois.
