Lions International District 27-A2Lions Gifting Opportunities Page

With so many different Lion's projects, there are just as many opportunities to give support.

The first thought when "Donate" is mentioned is money and money is a commodity that is always in short supply. While there are many different ways to make financial donations, what about donating your corneas is you pass? You could show off your support for Lionism by purchasing a Lions license plate. Last year, a major portion of the support for our Wisconsin Lions Camp came from deer hides donations. So read on and find your way to support Lions.
