About Lions Clubs International

Who We Are

Lions Clubs International have been an integral part of the City of Hope family for more than 62 years.
As volunteer leaders, they play a key role in helping fund development of internationally recognized medical and scientific programs.

What We Do

Lions Club International President Jung-Yul Choi
At virtually every turn on the City of Hope campus there is a ready evidence of Lions' generous support to City of Hope.
The Lions Clubs International Japanese Garden, located in the center of the City of Hope campus, has been a shining beacon of the Lions commitment to helping people in need. The Japanese Garden serves as a place of respite for the patients undergoing difficult treatments, which is very important in the healing process.
In 2018, with an official ribbon cutting ceremony, the Lions Clubs International Family Center at City of Hope was officially unveiled. The completion of the Lions Clubs Family Center fundraising program, provided a vast restoration of this crucial part of City of Hope's campus that enables patients to remain close to medical treatment and supportive care services while continuing their outpatient care.
In 2019, the Lions of Multiple District 4 embarked on a journey with City of Hope to end the war against Diabetes. With a goal of $1 million over 5 years, the Lions Clubs International Diabetes Innovation Fund will consist of projects that are diverse in aims, with studies identified and prioritized by their potential to advance research on type 2 diabetes and its many complications.
The Fund would support the most promising new ideas through a competitive selection process that would award two or more seed grants up to $100,000 per year, with the potential for renewal. The selection process and oversight would be conducted by a team of expert City of Hope researchers.
