Lions Club Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta • Riviera Nayarit 

Señor Salvador Cordero, General Manager of Hotel Paraíso, founded the Lions Club on November 2, 1958. The inauguration ceremony took place at the Ballroom of Paraíso Hotel.

The Board of Directors of the new Lion’s Club were, Señor Alfonso Uribe, President, Adolfo Curiel Quintero, Secretary, Cecilio Becerra, President of Banco de Comercio, and Treasurer.

Whenever a Lions Club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.

Our humanitarian service is enormous, and our Lions Club members are always present when natural disasters occur in the country.  We also support education, health, blindness and the environment.

Lions are groups of service-minded men and women who are interested in doing volunteer work to improve their communities. We are young people, families and Baby Boomers alike. To become a Lion is to become an active volunteer, a member of a respected international organization, a leader in your community and a friend to people in need. Learn more about what we do.

There are many reasons to become a member. As a Lion, you'll:

  • Help your community and gain valuable skills
  • Make an impact on people's lives – locally and internationally
  • Learn to be a leader – and lead a respected organization
  • Network with business people in your community and around the world
  • Energize your life and have fun

You'll grow personally and professionally. And you'll know that the community volunteer work you perform is worthwhile and appreciated.

How You Can Help Lions Club Puerto Vallarta

For more than four decades, the Lions Clubs International Foundation has relied on the generosity of individuals to carry out our humanitarian work. Donations make our worldwide efforts to restore sight, provide disaster relief, support youth and address other humanitarian needs possible.

When you give to the Foundation, you can be sure that your contribution is making a difference in the lives of people in need because 100 percent of every donation goes to our projects; all administrative costs are paid through interest earned on investments. LCIF receives no part of club dues.

Donating online is easy, and there are several other ways to contribute.  When donating online, please specify that your donations are credited to the Puerto Vallarta Lions Club.

Recognition programs for Lions provide one way for us to honor the generous dedication Lions have to supporting LCIF. Recognition varies depending upon level of support, and is available to individuals, clubs, districts and corporations. It can include pins, plaques, acknowledgement cards and other forms of appreciation. Recognizing Lions' kindness is one small way LCIF can say a big thank you.

What do nearly 46,000 Lions have in common each year? They become Contributing Members by donating at least $20 USD to LCIF. The Contributing Membership program is an annual program that recognizes three levels of support: $20 USD, $50 USD and $100 USD.

The LCIF Honor Roll recognizes individuals who donate $100 USD to LCIF or in whose name a donation was made by others. Recipients receive an Honor Roll certificate and their names are added to the Honor Roll at International Headquarters.

LCIF recognizes individuals who donate to the Foundation in the memory of another. The donor receives an acknowledgement card, and the family of the deceased receives a card informing them of the donation.

Thank you for supporting LCIF.
