Lodi Lions Club Foundation

 

Lodi Lions Club is now a 501-C3 Non Profit organization.

We have set up a foundation for donations to this.

About the Foundation

Lodi Lions Club Foundation, Inc. has been organized exclusively for charitable, religious, educational, and scientific purposes, including, for such purposes, the making of distributions to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  Our application is pending with the Internal Revenue Service.

The specific purpose of Lodi Lions Club Foundation is to engage in community support projects via volunteers and financial assistance.

Activities: The specific activities the organization will undertake are as follows:

  1. Community service projects
  2. Other key activities

 

Community service projects

As part of community service activities the organization provides funding and volunteer labor for local work projects in or near Lodi, CA. In addition, the organization provides financial assistance to local non-profit groups and organizations that benefit the city of Lodi.

The work project must positively affect the organization’s ability to deliver these services. Additional emphasis is given to organizations that provide relief assistance to the local poor, disabled, blind, distressed, or underprivileged; offer personal counseling; are engaged in the advancement of education or erection of public monuments or works; or combat community deterioration and juvenile delinquency.

Funding priorities are based on the following criteria:

  1. Community or humanitarian services;
  2. Aid for the blind and disabled;
  3. The organization's resources or property involve a work project that is visible from Lodi City streets;
  4. Funding levels of support (the maximum grant amount that may be requested is $12,500; this amount is for a one year use period only);
  5. Lodi Lions Club Foundation’s portion of work project labor will not exceed 100 man hours. Man hours and labor are in addition to $12,500 maximum grant funds for expenses.

The grant award is prioritized by a proposal that demonstrates the group's reach and amount of services provided in Lodi in one or more areas of emphasis outlined in the grant criteria.

Eligible projects are determined based on the following requirements:

  1. Addresses an important humanitarian need;
  2. Provides long term benefits and visibility;
  3. Serves the City of Lodi residents and immediate surrounding area;
  4. Project involves Lodi Lions Club’s members in hands-on activities and labor;
  5. Grant funds can be applied to purchase equipment, materials, third party services/contractors or other project related expenses;
  6. The planned project must be permanent, preferably visible to the public, and will allow the applicant to carry out their charter in a more effective way. The project location must be within the City of Lodi's immediate sphere of influence.

Applicants must be a Lodi based non-profit group or organization. Further consideration will be given to 50l (c)(3) designated organizations.
