General Donations

Happy Holidays from the Amherst Lions Club!

We want to thank Amherst Garden Center for their beautiful greenery!  Lions club members met with John and he quickly helped us identify how much we needed.  It was easy after that and we chose from a great selection.  Our community is blessed with caring individuals.   We all hope that everyone is staying safe and Covid free.  Enjoy the little things and remember we'll get through this.  


Lions Linda Ribolini, Reed Flowers and Pat Harrison helped create the planters for the bridge.

Go Fund Me Update

A big THANK YOU goes out to an anonymous donator who graced our GoFundMe with a $1,000 donation yesterday!  This is particularly helpful during this holiday season since we have more people in need than ever.  We also want to again recognize the Amherst Fire Department Association for their substantial donation.   With these and numerous other donations from community members, we have raised Just over $2,500 toward our goal of $20,000.  Please help us help others!  Please see more information below and click on the GoFundMe to donate now!

Want to make a difference in Amherst as we recover from COVID-19?  In normal years,  Amherst Lions Club raises substantial funds for local charities and provides hundreds of volunteer hours for our town through various community events.   

Unfortunately, for the safety of our members and the public we have canceled most volunteering and fundraising. The many needs we serve have not gone away, however, especially during this economic disruption.  So we are asking all LIONS supporters to keep our charity funding strong so we can help those who've been hit hardest.  

The LIONS motto is "We Serve" and the Amherst LIONS have taken that motto to heart for almost fifty years.   Though we can't organize our normal fundraising events this year, we are determined to serve our community through this online fundraising effort.  Please contribute what you can by clicking
Go Fund Me.

Please note tax deductions for donations given to charities:  An important feature this year, courtesy of the CARES Act, is that you can deduct up to $300 above the line from your taxes for amounts given to charity. ($600 for married couples)

This is for those taking the standard deduction.

More info here:

So you can donate to the Amherst Lions and deduct it from your taxes for 2020! It's a good deal!
