About the Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation

The Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation (GLLF) was the dream of a blind man, Atlanta Lions Club member Tom Bingham. In 1949, the Atlanta Lions Club led by Bingham, along with Moultrie and Albany Lions, each contributed $1,000, and the Lighthouse was born. Since then, Lions Clubs have served as the cornerstone of the organization and maintain a vital role in the growth and reach of our mission: to create a better Georgia by bringing individuals into a world of sight and sound. Together we continue to set the standard for service and equal access vision and hearing care for Georgians in need.

Nearly 2 million Georgians are uninsured. GLLF is committed to filling the gaps that still exist for underinsured Georgians by providing access to low-cost vision and hearing services.

GLLF partners with a statewide network of optometrists, ophthalmologists, and audiologists to provide vision screenings, eye exams, eyeglasses, eye surgeries, and hearing aids to over 7,000 Georgia residents each year.
