How do I become a Luminary Society Member?
The Luminary Society Membership is an individual giving program of Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation. A Luminary Society Membership is an honor presented to those who donate at least $1,000 per calendar year or to people for whom a donation is made by other individuals. As a Luminary Society member, you will be recognized in our annual report as well an invitation to our annual special event. Donations can be made online as well.

I made a $1,000 donation to Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation a few years ago. Am I a Luminary Society member?
The Luminary Society is now an annual giving program. Individuals are honored for their pledges and contributions each calendar year. So, individuals who made contributions in past years solely will not be recognized as current Luminary Society members.

Who can make contributions to the Luminary Society?
Contributions must be made by individuals. A group of individuals can submit donations on behalf of someone else, but this donation must come from individual accounts and not from a Lions Club. Contributions can be made in one sum, or in installments of any amount over a period of a year.

Do I have to be a Lion to be a member of the Luminary Society?
No, you do not have to be a Lion to be a Luminary Society member.

Can I designate my gift for a particular purpose?
Yes!  Any individual gift designated for White Cane, Regular Contributions, or in memory or honor of a loved one.

White Cane

White Cane is an annual fundraising initiative promoted and supported by the Lions Clubs. All funds raised through the White Cane Initiative support clients of Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation who need vision surgeries, lack insurance coverage and cannot afford to pay for the surgery themselves.

White Cane Safety Day has also been nationally observed since 1964. The October 15 date is set aside to celebrate the achievements of people who are blind or visually impaired and the important symbol of blindness and tool of independence, the white cane.

Lions Club International also supports White Cane Safety Day and has a whole program available to Lion Clubs on its website.

Georgia Lions may elect to promote the White Cane initiative at any point in the year that works optimally for their community.
