The Dallas Oak Cliff Lions Club was Organized and Chartered in April 1929.  For over 90 years, Oak Cliff Lions have supported a variety of local, state, national and international charities involving youth, vision, and other worthy causes and charities. It is estimated that the Club has contributed over $2 million to charitable causes through the dedicated efforts of Club members.    

From local Projects such as funding the Oak Cliff Eye Clinic facility in the 1950’s in cooperation with the City of Dallas, to a major contribution to the Dallas Zoo for the Bird and Reptile House in the 1960’s, a gift of $20,000 to fund the main hall of the new Oak Cliff YMCA Building on South Hampton Road in the 1970’s, a $10,000 contribution in the 1990's to help launch the tactile exhibit for the visually impaired at the Dallas Zoo, in cooperation with the Metroplex Mitsubishi Dealers, and in 2006, the Club contributed $20,000 to the Lions Sight and Tissue Foundation's Mobile Eyeglass Bus Project.  Our group of Lions Club Members have been ready and willing to meet the needs of our community.
