Vision.  Hearing.   Hope.


The South Dakota Lions Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that supports the charitable efforts of Lions Clubs and Members throughout South Dakota.  The Foundation has been partnering with Lions to help people with their vision and hearing needs since 1964.  Because we're local, we can serve the unique needs of the communities we live in.  And because we're global, we can address challenges that go beyond borders with our eyeglass recycling program.


Our Vision...

The vision of the South Dakota Lions Foundation is to create a permanent vehicle for the development and delivery of programs and services to the visually and hearing impaired.


Our Mission...

Partnering with Lion clubs to assure a legacy of vision and hearing related services for South Dakota citizens.


"It is for us to pray not for tasks equal to our powers, but for powers equal to our tasks, to go forward with a great desire forever beating at the door of our hearts as we travel toward our distant goal."
