Outright Gifts

on .

thank-youThank you for considering a charitable gift to the South Carolina Lions Foundation (SCLF)! Your donation will enable the SCLF to continue to provide the means for the SC Lions Charitable Services (SCLCS) to serve impoverished South Carolinians in a much deeper and meaningful way!

We know that by donating, you believe in the mission of SCLCS and you want to help make a difference in the lives of the visually and hearing impaired citizens of South Carolina. We also want to make sure that you benefit from providing such a generous gift. Because we are a 501(c)(3) tax exempt charity, all gifts made to the SCLF are eligible for tax deductions.

The most common donations the SCLF receives are "outright" gifts, such as cash, check, or credit card charge, which are used to attend to the immediate needs of those we serve. These outright gifts can be made anytime: in person, online, by phone or by mail.

The SCLF has several outright giving levels for individuals.

These gifts are eligible for a Dr. Franklin Mason Fellowship, a recognition that acknowledges the humanitarian efforts of either the donor, or an honoree of the donor's choosing.
