Melvin Jones Awards and Progressive Melvin Jones Awards


The MJF Program was established in 1973 in honor of Melvin Jones, the founder of Lions Clubs International. The MJF is a recognition of unrestricted donations of US$1,000 to Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF). New MJFs receive a pin, commemorative plaque and a letter from the LCIF Chairperson. If the donor so chooses, he/she may use their donations credit to recognize another individual with an MJF.

For those who are already an MJF, the Progressive Melvin Jones Fellowship (PMJF) provides an opportunity to advance in the Fellowship program. For each subsequent donation of US$1,000 beyond the initial MJF donation, donors receive a new level of recognition, signified by a unique PMJF pin in accordance with their level of giving. The PMJF program has 100 levels, representing gifts between US$2,000 – US$100,000. Like MJFs, donors can honor another individual with PMJF donations.
