Lions Vision Services partnered with the South Carolina DHHS for state-wide vision screenings between 2014 and 2018, receiving grant funding from the SC General Assembly. The final funds from this government grant were disbursed in January 2019, reflected in the revenue chart below. A fundraising gala was held in May 2019. These two sources of revenue do not appear consistently in LVS financials because government and special event funding are not routine segments of our fundraising program.
Lions Vision Services maintains thorough and transparent financial records to emphasize to our community our commitment to prudent financial practices, accounting standards, and stewardship. This responsible stewardship of our fiscal resources ensures that we are positioned to excel in times of prosperity and prepared to weather changes in the economy at local and national levels.
Lions Vision Services maintains a 2020 Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, the highest rating available which is held by only 0.5% of nonprofits ranked by GuideStar.
Thank you to the patrons and partners who generously support our work.
