The Lions Vision Rehabilitation Foundation (LVRF) is a private, nonprofit foundation that secures and manages its own funds. It is governed by a 23-member Board of Trustees elected from the Multiple District 22 Lions membership, plus three Wilmer faculty. The Board oversees the Foundation's activities and finances, and informs Lions throughout the Multiple District of advances in research and patient care at Wilmer.
The primary purpose of the Lions Vision Research Foundation (LVRF) is to support low vision research and rehabilitation to minimize the disabilities caused by low vision and blindness. The objectives of the LVRF are being met through its partnership with the Lions Vision Research and Rehabilitation Center (LVC), at the Wilmer Eye Institute of The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, Maryland.
