Financial Hardship Assistance

Children & Youth: The LCSF administered Lions Education Fund was established by the District in 2008 for the purpose of establishing scholarships, bursaries and other schemes to provide financial assistance to needy and deserving students. Lions Education Fund currently grants annual bursaries, book prizes, food and transport allowance schemes to schools and institutions at all levels of learning in Singapore, covering primary, secondary, junior colleges, ITE and other skill training colleges, polytechnics as well as universities. LCSF grants also support the organisation of special annual holiday camps for less fortunate youth, such as those with paediatric cancer, who cannot participate in normal youth holiday activities.

Recognition

Many Lions Clubs have raised funds for LCSF since it was registered as a charity with IPC status. It is hoped that more Lions Clubs will favourably consider to channel their fund-raising efforts through LCSF tax-exempt donation facility as well as to benefit from LCSF grants for their projects that promote and achieve the objectives of the Lions movement in Singapore. In appreciation of the efforts to raise funds for LCSF charitable causes, an Award Scheme was established to recognize donors and fund-raisers from the public, corporations and individuals as well as Lions and Lions Clubs..
