The chart below summarizes the fiscal year 2015-2016 total donation amount (and percent) by major areas of giving to the Easton Community.  All grants were reviewed by the Lions Club of Easton Foundation Fund Screening Committee and the Board of Directors and approved by the Easton Lions general membership.   We are very fortunate to have a community that supports our many activities in Easton, the Thrift Store, and a lot of active members raising funds for the Easton community as well as eye research.   Easton organizations are invited to apply for grants that align with our giving causes.  Details on our Club’s Community Grant Guidelines are available online at www.eastonlion.org/grant.
