White Cane FAQ
What is the difference between regular club giving and White Cane giving?
When your club gives a “regular” contribution it goes into the Lighthouse’s general funds. From there it can be used for eye clinics, eye glasses, the hearing aid program, the eye surgery program, or administrative costs. Your Lighthouse operates at 10% overhead, so $0.90 of every dollar donated goes directly to programs and services. When your club donates to White Cane, 100% of the donation are used for the eye surgery or vision clinic program to help save a Georgian’s sight. When you give to the Lighthouse, be sure the check is designated “White Cane” or “regular.” The designation will help ensure that your funds are used the way you intend.
Can my individual gifts count toward our White Cane total?
Yes, any individual contribution automatically counts toward your club. Just be sure to include your club’s name on the check, and whether you want the contribution to go toward White Cane or regular club giving.
Can we get posters or other printed materials from the Lighthouse for White Cane days or other events?
Yes, we have 3 posters per club that we would be happy to send to you for White Cane. We also have bookmarks, pamphlets, brochures, and a short video that help explain what your Lighthouse does throughout Georgia. To request any of those items, please contact Kelcie Lewis.
How can we make sure our donation goes toward White Cane?
Checks we receive from Lions clubs are considered "regular" club gifts unless they are otherwise indicated. Ensure that your White Cane check gets credited the way you intend by writing "White Cane" in the "for" section of your check.
