KLF was founded in 1999, formed to increase the level of community service and support through education, humanitarian, and charitable projects. Projects include the ALERT (disaster response) program, Lions Quest, Deaf and Hard of Hearing long term summer camp scholarships, Peace Poster contest, and Youth Exchange.
A new addition is the Kansas Lions Alert Team Emergency Grant Criteria and Application. The objective of the KLAT is to provide immediate emergency relief to the victims of a residence displacement. KLAT emergency funds are available for relief aid in the wake of any natural or manmade disaster that is not within the confines of a LCIF Emergency Grant where a person(s) is displaced from their home.
