The Saratoga Springs Lions Club foundation established in 2003, is the 501(c)3 component of the Saratoga Springs Lions Club, allowing tax deductible gifts and donations to assist The Lions Club in pursuit of the goals of Lionism; sight, hearing diabetes and youth activities.
Community participation is vital to allow Lions to broaden the scope of our outreach to those in our community who need and deserve help and compassion to improve their quality of life.
Our funds come from

While we do have an annual fundraising event, (Our Duathlon) a significant portion of our grants are made possible from the generosity and support of individuals and businesses from The Saratoga Springs and Albany New York Capital Distric Area.
