Finis Davis Fellowship

Finis Davis

The Finis E. Davis Fellowship has been created to honor the memory of Kentucky’s first and only President of Lions Clubs International.  PIP Finis served as President in 1960-1961.  Then in 1967-68 he was President of the Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation.  He spearheaded the drive to raise the first two million dollars to build the Kentucky Lions Eye Research Institute, which is now a world-class center, and dedicated his life to Lionism.

The fellowship is available to everyone, not just Lions, Lioness or Leos. It may also be given as a memorial.

 

The Davis Fellowship may be obtained by a contribution of $500 or more to the Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation.  The contribution may be made over a period of time by making payment of not less than $100.  The Fellowship will be presented upon receipt of the final payment.  Checks should be made to the Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation.  The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. 

 

The recipient of the Finis E. Davis Fellowship from the Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation President, a personalized plaque, patch & pin.
