About Us

Who we are:

 In 1917,  Melvin Jones, a 38-year-old Chicago business leader, asked a simple and  world-changing question – what if people put their talents to work  improving their communities. Almost 100 years later, Lions Clubs  International is the world's largest service club organization, with  1.35 million members in more than 46,000 clubs and countless stories of  Lions acting on the same simple idea: let's improve our communities.   Lions are members of the world’s largest and most active service club  organization in 206 countries carrying out the Lion's motto - "We  Serve."

The Bulverde  Lions Club was founded in 1969 and is classified by the Internal Revenue  Service as a 501(c)(4) - Civic league and Social Welfare Organization.  All funds raised by the Bulverde Lions Club from the general public are  used for charitable purposes, and administrative costs are kept strictly  separate and paid for by members. Funds raised by the Club are donated  toward projects that benefit the local community. The Bulverde Lions  Club Foundation also operates as a charity that qualifies as tax-exempt  under Section 501(c)(3) that provides scholarships and funding for  medical assistance. The following is a list of some of the ways that we  are able to provide assistance:

  · Scholarships to local High School Graduates

  · Vision Testing for Area Children

  · St Jude’s Ranch for Children

  · Equipment funding for the local Volunteer Fire and EMS Departments

  · Cub Scout Pack & Boy Scout Troop #548

  · The Comal County Junior Livestock Show

  · The Texas Lions Camp for Physically Challenged Children

  · The Texas Lions Eye Bank

  · The Bulverde Community Center

  · Anhalt Hall

  · Bulverde Spring Branch Activity Center

The  Bulverde Lions Club participates in a wide variety of service projects  that meet the international goals of Lions Clubs International as well  as the needs of the local community through its network of dedicated and  selfless volunteer members of the Club.  Membership is by invitation,  though individuals are rarely turned away, and meetings are conducted on  a bimonthly basis.  The Bulverde Lions Club works actively throughout  the year in planning and conducting their Annual Wild Game Dinner at  Anhalt Hall in Spring Branch, Texas.  The Annual Wild Game Dinner serves  delicious exotic food and hosts live and silent auctions consisting of  dove hunts, fishing trips, premium guns and many other assorted fishing  and hunting items. We are a small chapter of Lion’s doing big things  within our community since 1969!

We care, and demonstrate that caring through our service to our Community and to our Nation - LIONS!
