Pendleton Lions


Our Purpose


The Pendleton Lions Foundation is a non-profit corporation that supports the charitable activities of the Pendleton Lions Club.   The Foundation assists the Pendleton Lions in financing and providing resources for the many charitable operations undertaken by the Club. The Internal Revenue Service has classified the Foundation as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. This means all donations to the foundation are tax deductible under IRS regulations.

The foundation augments the Pendleton Lions Club's ability to conduct charitable activities. You can directly support these activities by donating to the foundation.  Your donation is tax deductible and one hundred per cent of your donation goes to support charitable operations.  From helping a homeless person obtain glasses to supporting our National Guard families whose loved ones have been deployed, your donation can make a difference in the lives of others.

About the Foundation

The Pendleton Lions Club Board of Directors manages the Pendleton Lions Foundation. Officers of the Foundation are elected annually and may be different than officers who mange general club activities. Lions clubs in the United States are classified as social welfare organizations and as such direct donations to the clubs by the public are not tax deductible under IRS laws. However, donations to the foundation are tax deductible. Since administrative funds collected internally by the club for club administration are used to manage the foundation, all money's donated to the foundation are used for charitable purposes.

We strive to be fully transparent in the management of the Pendleton Lions Foundation. Annual receipts are expected to be below $50,000.00. Therefore, the foundation uses the e-Postcard system of reporting to the IRS in lieu of Form 990. Corporate and tax documents may be accessed below. Questions concerning the Pendleton Lions Foundation may be addressed to the Pendleton Lions Club. See ourContact Uspage for more information on contacting the club.
