Our Partners

Hospitals/Hospice

Iowa Lions Eye Bank works closely with healthcare professionals and Hospital Donation Committees to educate on the process of donor management and promote donor awareness within hospitals and hospice facilities.

Iowa Lions Eye Bank offers a free CEU presentation on eye, organ, and tissue donation to all healthcare professionals and provides many different tools and materials to assist the process of donation. Please contact us to discuss and customize a program that fits your educational needs.

Funeral Homes

Iowa Lions Eye Bank values its partnership with the Iowa Funeral Directors Association and with local funeral homes to meet the donation wishes of the deceased and their families.  Making the decision to donate has given comfort and meaning to many families by knowing that their loved one was able to give the gift of sight. Iowa Lions Eye Bank will work with your funeral home to streamline the donation process and provide donor families the highest level of compassion and care.

Iowa Donor Network

Iowa Lions Eye Bank partners with Iowa’s only Organ Procurement Organization, Iowa Donor Network, to facilitate donation and transform lives through eye, organ, and tissue donation throughout the state of Iowa.

Lions Clubs of Iowa

The Lions Clubs of Iowa are an integral part of the Iowa Lions Eye Bank operations. Volunteer Lions who participate in the Lions Transport Program transport donor corneal tissue from the western half of the state to Iowa Lions Eye Bank in Coralville almost daily to be processed for transplant. 
 

The Lions Clubs International has been dedicated to aiding the blind and visually impaired since 1925 and the Iowa Clubs continue to donate funds for multiple pieces of research equipment for the Iowa Lions Eye Bank research team.
