2017 Lions Club Foundation of Fraser Valley Inc. Grants Program

Grant Guidelines

The primary purpose of the Lions Club Foundation of Fraser Valley’s grant program is to provide financial resources to non-profit agencies that support the residents of Grand County.  We typically do not fund individuals however we fund organizations that do provide assistance to individuals.  *Individuals with vision or hearing issues may contact the Foundation for information about other Lions’ programs that may be able to provide assistance.

The Lions Foundation does not provide grants to:  political organizations, for-profit groups or companies, religious organizations for religious purposes, or organizations that may be perceived as polarizing, divisive or unduly controversial.  This may include organizations that may be perceived to favor any political party, candidate or position, a politically charged issue or any organization deemed to promote a culturally sensitive topic, position, or mission.

The deadline for filing a completed 2017 Grant Application is 5:00 p.m. MDT on July 19, 2017.  Late applications will NOT be accepted.  Grants will not be accepted before June 14, 2017. Requests will not be considered unless supported by a completed Grant Application, including all requested attachments. Funds will be distributed to successful applicants at an awards luncheon that will be held at Snow Mountain Ranch, September 19, 2017.  One member of the receiving organization will be hosted at no cost.  Additional attendees from a receiving organization are welcome but will be charged at cost for the lunch.  Organizations receiving a 2017 Lions’ grant are strongly encouraged to attend the awards luncheon.
