When disaster strikes the Australian Lions Foundation is amongst the first to offer disaster relief.
When Cyclone Tracey decimated Darwin in 1974, to the devastating bushfires that impacted areas of South Australia and Victoria in 2015, the Australian Lions Foundation has been on the ground providing financial assistance and support to local communities in times of need.
We continue to fulfil this need not only in Australia and Papua New Guinea, but also internationally where our emergency relief and community welfare projects contribute to global understanding and cooperation. Formed with the sole purpose of assisting people in times of need, these are just a few of our current initiatives:
- $150,000 to assist people impacted by the 2015 Hunter Valley floods
- Bicycles for children at the Jacana School for Autism
- A Cancer clinic in Colac, Victoria
- The provision of Liberty swings for disabled children
- Funding of Men’s sheds
Personal gifts to the Australian Lions Foundation are welcomed, and gifts of $2.00 or more are tax deductible. To donate either click on the ‘Make a Donation’ button, or send donations to:
Award Chairperson, David Triffett, PO Box 465, Glenorchy, Tasmania, 7010.
Annual Honorary Gifts
Each year, when Lions clubs receive their semi-annual dues account, they are asked to make a voluntary donation to the Foundation. These funds are vital to ensuring that we continue to serve communities both at home and overseas, and we urge clubs to respond favourably to our request.
