The Lions Community Service Foundation (Singapore) (LCSF) was registered as a Charity and District 308-A1 entity in 2003.

VISION
To be the leading source of philanthropic giving for the conduct of humanitarian services in Singapore from funds raised by Lions Clubs from the public.

MISSION
To be the central organization for fiscal resources generated by Lions fund-raising activities and to extend the scope of tax exempt donations to Lions causes in Singapore beyond services to the elderly.

It was formed:

  • To establish a central organization for fiscal resources generated by Lions’ fundraising activities
  • To raise funds accumulated as an Endowment Fund, for the support of any relief work and community service projects carried out by Lions Clubs in furtherance of their club charter objectives.
  • To raise funds for the support and continued management by Lions of the Lions Home for the Elders and Lions Befrienders Service Association.
  • To receive and administer funds raised by Lions Clubs and employing same for the relief of disaster and calamity or for carrying out of humanitarian or educational or other service activities which in the opinion of the Board of Directors and Trustees warrant such actions.

As the District Foundation, its main purpose then was for emergency disaster relief. However as the District Foundation was not a registered body, funds could only be raised from Lions and not the public. Hence its only source of income was the RM10 per year subscribed by each Lion in the District. Thus the proposal to establish a duly registered Foundation with tax exempt fund raising privileges was recommended by the Long Range planning Committee during the term of PCC Dr Winston Koh, when he was District Governor 308A, FY 1997/1998 as in the following year Lions Clubs in Singapore were to form a separate District 308-A1.

The resolution to register the Lions Foundation under the Societies Act was unanimously approved and adopted at the 4th District 308-A1 Convention held in Singapore, in April 2002. The Constitution and By Laws of Lions Community Service Foundation (Singapore) was approved, and the first Board of Directors of the Foundation elected at the 5th District 308- A1 Convention in April 2003. The Foundation was registered with Registrar of Societies and Commissioner for Charities in the same year.
