  • About

    The Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin, Inc., (LEBW) a nonprofit 501(c)3, is a team of professionals & volunteers dedicated to the mission of restoring the Gift of Sight through recovery & transplantation of corneas, research to advance the knowledge & treatment of eye diseases & education to increase donations of human eyes after death.

    LEBW is assisted by numerous dedicated volunteers from Lions, Lioness, & Leo Clubs throughout the State of Wisconsin. There are approximately 19,500 Lions Club Members across the state of Wisconsin ~ 1,500 of these individuals transport eye tissue each year. These members bring surgically removed eye tissue to the LEBW laboratory in Madison where further evaluation & preparation of donor corneas are conducted.

    The financial support of LEBW provides needed resources in the effort to restore sight & prevent blindness. The Knight of Sight award is given in recognition of monetary gifts of $1,000 or more.

    Serving the entire state of Wisconsin, The Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin fulfills this mission by procuring, processing, & distributing eye tissue to corneal transplant surgeons, researchers, & teachers.

    Equally important is our commitment to education through our network of medical professionals, Lions/Lioness Clubs, and other volunteers who give generously of their time, talent, & treasures.

    LEBW continues its commitment to people in the present who receive transplants & those in the future who will benefit from the research.

    Our ultimate goal is to improve people's quality of life through the Gift of Sight.

What Others Have Said

  • Kudos to the Chamber and the Small Business Advisory Council for the creation of the Road Construction Survival Guide. It connects the affected businesses with the city departments and the construction company in charge. The regular meetings and contact with the correct people makes a huge difference in coping.

  • My small business has a voice in local politics with the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, I have a voice here. We’re all business people and we look at the bottom line. The return on investment from my Chamber membership and the advocacy it provides is far above what I get from other organizations.

  • The Chamber has worked tirelessly to promote the interests of the local business community, and to create and preserve the conditions that allow businesses to thrive, for the good of the entire community. I can think of no organization that is better equipped to guide us through this time than the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, and we all owe it our full support, to our mutual benefit.
