The San Francisco Fil-Am Lions Club was chartered on July 17, 1971 as the first Lions Club of Filipino ancestry in the United States. Since then, it's members have gone out far and wide to start and revive numerous other Filipino American clubs within the San Francisco Bay Area, but the club still perseveres, holding to it's roots as a service organization for our communities in San Francisco and the Philippines.
Due to the novel coronavirus and local health restrictions, our meetings have switched to virtual video conferences (via Zoom). For more details on how to join, please visit the specific event page on our calendar.
Physical service projects are still going on, with precautions such as social distancing, open air/outside venues, requirement of own transportation, usage of exposure notification mobile applications, and limitations on the number of volunteers present at the event.
Lions Clubs International
Our 46,000 clubs and 1.4+ million members make us the world's largest service club organization. We're also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat and with people we may never meet.
