Where there’s a need, there’s a Lion.

Our Impact

Lions Clubs throughout Australia and Papua New Guinea are involved in establishing and managing a range of national projects, activities, foundations and initiatives. Through community fundraising, last year alone we raised more than $28 million that went towards funding medical research, health care, assisting adults and children with disabilities, emergency response, and other purposes to help the community.

Focus Areas

Insight is often more valuable than instinct – if we aren’t informed about what’s happening around us, our impact may fall short. So, we cultivate an awareness of local needs and how they connect to a larger global narrative. We seek new information and turn it into insight. Learning positions us to be effective.

Our mission is service, and service is visible. Its effects are measurable. Equipped with insight and inspired by opportunity, we practically support our communities, our regions, and our world together. Through action we fulfil our mission.

We align with Lions International’s Global Causes

Every journey begins with a single step. One act of service, one encouraging word, one gift of generosity is often all it takes to bring hope where it’s needed most.

Over the last 100 years, the kindness of Lions and Leos has multiplied across borders, oceans, and continents. With over 1.4 million members, we now have an opportunity to truly change our world.

That’s why we’re uniting our global service around areas of need.

These Global Causes present significant challenges to humanity, and we believe it’s our turn to meet them.
