Grants

Donor Grant Request

The objective of the Donor Grant Request Program is to provide the donor with an avenue to direct their donation, via the Colorado Lions Foundation.

If the ultimate destination is other than a 501(c)(3) Organization (ie: Lions Club or local Colorado emergency), the purpose must meet the IRS requirements for a donation to a 501(c)(3) Organization. The Colorado Lions Foundation Board of Trustees has final approval of such donor requests.
