The chart below gives a high-level summary of the Lions Club of Easton Foundation Community Grants approved by the membership via the Fund Screening Committee through April 11, 2016. 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 eye research and the Easton community. Easton organizations are invited 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.
The Fund Screening Committee is budgeted to distribute $20,000 in the 2015-2016 Lions’ year. Fund Screening grants do NOT include scholarships to Oliver Ames High School, toolships to Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical High School, Mass. Lions Eye Research Fund distributions and other approved distributions by the Board of Directors.
