Since every Lion in Kansas MD17 is a member of the Kansas Lions Foundation your club has a very important tool you can use to solicit more donations from area businesses and individuals for your club projects.
The Kansas Lions Foundation is a 501(c)3 Foundation and can set up a Club Project Account for your Lions Club. When you receive monetary donations for a club project from a company or individual they may be want to use the donation as a charitable tax deduction. Many individuals and companies require a 501(c)3 designation for your club to get a donation. We can provide this by having the check made out to the Kansas Lions Foundation. Note - Most Lions Clubs are not a 501(c)3 and cannot give this information to potential donors for donations.
The Kansas Lions Foundation can help. By setting up Club Project Account for a one-time service fee of $5.00 your Lions Club can have your donations sent to the Kansas Lions Foundation. When you set up the account you designate how your donation should be handled.
