Volunteer for Sight
Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin (LEBW) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to restoring sight through the recovery and transplantation of corneal tissue. Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin provides 100% of Wisconsin’s corneal surgery needs for corneal transplant surgeons throughout the state; no cornea leaves the state until every Wisconsin patient’s needs are accounted for. Every step of the donation process committed through LEBW is 100% not-for-profit, from recovery to transplant. We maintain the altruistic spirit of the gift and each donation is handled with the utmost respect
A strong backbone of our work is the volunteers who make some of our work happen. From the Wisconsin Lions Club Transporters that relay tissue across the state, to our speakers and event volunteers that tell the stories of how their corneal transplants changed their lives, LEBW is grateful for the hard work and dedication that our volunteers put in to make the gift of sight a reality for our neighbors. LEBW is always looking for volunteers to help bring awareness to eye, organ and tissue donation.
