Our History

Discover the history of the Minnesota Lions Hearing Foundation (previously known as the Lions Multiple District 5M Hearing Foundation). We fund hearing services in Minneapolis, Minnesota, as well as hearing research projects.

For almost four decades, we have fostered a partnership with the University of Minnesota, and the Minnesota Lions Hearing Foundation has raised more than $7 million in funds for equipment, capital improvements, and hearing research. Together we have established:

  • The Lions 5M International Hearing Center
  • The Lions Voice Clinic
  • The Lions Children's Hearing Center
  • The Lions Affordable Hearing Aid Project

In addition, our foundation has funded a newborn hearing screening program throughout Minnesota in all 111 hospitals. We ensure that little ears can hear.
