History

Founded in 1919 as the Downtown Grand Rapids Lions Club, our members have established an unprecedented track record of service to the Grand Rapids community which now extends more than nine decades. While many of our efforts and programs have centered on support for the visually impaired, we’ve also worked hard over the years to provide needed assistance to many other individuals and groups.

Many of our current and past projects are highlighted in the “Projects We Support” section of this web site.
