The Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit organized by the Lions of Kentucky. Our mission is to provide vision services through education, detection, prevention, treatment and empowerment. Through collaborative partnerships, we enable greater independence and increased quality of life for all Kentuckians while focusing on children and adults in financial need. Our motto is, “Your Vision is Our Mission.”
The work of our Foundation touches the lives of over 40,000 Kentuckians who annually receive one of our free vision services. The Foundation’s activities are supported through funds contributed by Lions & Lioness Clubs, individual members, businesses, benefactors, memorials, bequests and the funds raised during our annual fundraiser, the Mr. and Miss Kentucky Basketball Awards Ceremony.
