It’s been a challenging year for so many and in so many ways. Our strength has always been our ability to come together and support the club. Now more than ever, we need that support. 

As a 501(c)3 sports non-profit there is a tax benefit for individuals and corporations that contribute gifts to the Village Lions. In 2019, nearly 60 Lions gave an average of $500 to support the club. That enabled us to put professional coaching in place for all of our men’s and women’s programs (7s and XVs) and to support 20 people who may not have otherwise been able to participate in Club events and activities.

Again in 2020 we offer several ways to support with a tax deductible gift through the Lions’ Fund program, for those that are in a position to do so:

– Monthly Subscriptions, starting at $25

– One Time Gift of any amount

– Multi-Year Pledge of any amount

– Matching Program with your company

Lion’s treasurer Ryan Tumelty has made it easy to set up a subscription or make a gift today via PayPal (PayPal fees may apply, indicate “I’m sending money to family or friends” option) Chase QuickPay and Venmo (one time gifts only).
