On January 1, 2018, Minnesota Lions Eye Bank changed its organization name to Lions Gift of Sight! Several reasons compelled the change, including:
Minnesota Lions Eye Bank, now Lions Gift of Sight, serves a large area that is outside of Minnesota, and a name that is not state-specific will be more-inclusive of these areas.
The word "bank" often leads people to believe that we are involved in finance. The new name will not prompt the same misconceptions.
As eye banks diversify, their services to surgeons include resources that do not fall under traditional "eye banking."
The Lions Gift of Sight relationship with the University of Minnesota and with Minnesota Lions club members is unaffected by the change. New name. New look. Same trusted service.
