Annual Foundation Contribution

Each year the Foundation asks Lions Clubs and our members for $100 contributions to support our grant program to Lions Clubs in MD-20. By contributing three (3) times ($300), a Club or individual Lion can earn the privilege to designate a Robert J. Uplinger (RJU) Award, which can be presented to a deserving Club member, non-Lion or community organization that embodies the Lions spirit of “We Serve”. Since the Foundation is an official MD-20 (state) project, a club may use activity funds to make these contributions. At the annual MD-20 convention, contributing Clubs and individuals for that year will be eligible to receive incentive awards from the Foundation.
