Detroit Lions Charities
Detroit Lions Charities was formed in June, 1990, and is a non-profit organization founded by the Detroit Lions to assist charitable and educational causes in Michigan with emphasis on programs that benefit the children and youth of Detroit.
Detroit Lions Charities assists a wide variety of activities and programs that benefit:
All grant recipients must be public charities exempt from taxation under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. While grant recipients represent a widely diverse range of programs involving all age groups throughout Michigan, the focus of Detroit Lions Charities is on programs that benefit the children and youth of Detroit.
Unfortunately, not all funding requests can be filled. Also, there are activities and programs that do not fit Detroit Lions Charities’ guidelines. Among those are requests for building and equipment, endowments, political campaigns and activities, religious programs of a strictly denominational nature, individuals (including loans and scholarships), raffles, banquets, graduation events, advertising, multi-year grant requests, and requests for grants from outside Michigan that do not benefit the citizens of Michigan.Grant requests will be accepted only between October 1 and December 31.
