From those dollars raised we donate to a broad range of community activities. Roughly 60% of our donations are to local Paris and District groups or people. 30% of our donations go to provincial/national causes. 10% of our donations go to international interests.

In the last couple years, we have donated to the following:

  • Canadian Military Heritage Museum (Brantford)
  • Paris District High School Scholarships
  • Diabetes (Brantford)
  • Seniors Fall Lunch
  • Paris Youth Softball Association

Monies donated to provincial groups will often benefit local residents.

None of the money raised through “public fundraising” is used in the administration of the club’s affairs. Lions members through membership fees and internal club fundraising cover club administration costs.

If you would like to donate, please participate and support our many fundraisers. Alternatively, you can donate by sending a cheque payable to the “Lions Club of Paris” and forward it to our address at 139 Silver Street, PO Box 123, Paris, ON, N3L 3E7.

In the future, online donations will be accepted.

Thank you.
