WHAT IS A MELVIN JONES FELLOWSHIP?
The Melvin Jones Fellowship is the backbone of LCIF, providing 70 percent of the foundation's revenue. A recognition of humanitarian work, an MJF is awarded to those who donate US$1,000 to LCIF or to people for whom a donation was made by others. Melvin Jones Fellows receive an attractive lapel pin, a plaque and a congratulatory letter.
Melvin Jones Fellows who make additional US$1,000 donations to LCIF, or in whose name US$1,000 donations are made, become part of the Melvin Jones Fellowship Progressive program. Progressive Melvin Jones Fellows are awarded a new lapel pin and congratulatory letter for each subsequent US$1,000 donation. (The first lapel pin is a one-diamond yellow gold pin. For each US$1,000 donation thereafter another diamond is added to the pin.)
To apply for a fellowship, complete the MJF
Application form (LCIF-42M). For the recognitions available, download the LCIF
Recognition Programs form (LCIF-42R).
It is possible to make a donation and choose the MJF recipient later. Write "Melvin Jones Fellow to be named later" on the check or bank draft.
When an individual's or group of individuals' personal donation(s) are accumulated for a club's use to select a Melvin Jones Fellowship recipient, LCIF needs the signed consent of the donors. When a club's donation(s) are accumulated for a fellowship recipient to be selected by the district, LCIF needs the signed consent of the club. Please include such documentation with the completed MJF application that is sent to LCIF Donor & Financial Services.
Melvin Jones Fellows are honored each year at the Melvin Jones Fellow Luncheon on Thursday during the International Convention. The luncheon also typically includes a presentation of awards to 100 percent Melvin Jones clubs and to individuals who have supported LCIF and the showing of a LCIF video.
