To be the leading source of philanthropic giving for the conduct of humanitarian services in Singapore from funds raised by Lions Clubs.
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 needy and aged sick.
The Lions Community Service Foundation (Singapore) (LCSF) was formally registered as a Charity in Singapore in 2003 to succeed the then District Foundation to fulfil the above Vision & Mission Statements. It is also an approved Institution of Public Character (IPC) entitling it to receive tax-exempt donations.
Through LCSF, Lions Clubs in Singapore are encouraged to be united in their fund-raising efforts to support our community service programmes with minimal public misunderstanding or confusion arising from individual Clubs and Lions programmes competing amongst each other in fund-raising.
Duly registered societies with a Lions Club Charter in District 308-A1 are members of LCSF by passing a club resolution to abide by LCSF Constitution & By-laws.
LCSF aims to build an Endowment Fund from donations raised by its member clubs from the public which income would fund Lions community programmes, including the Lions Home For The Elders (LHE), Lions Befrienders Service Association (LBSA), Lions SaveSight Centre (LSSC) and other Lions service projects including the new Lions Prostheses Center.
Lions Clubs, as well as non-Lion Voluntary Welfare Organisations, may apply for grants from LCSF to support their community services in accordance with established guidelines for the disbursement of LCSF funds. All applications by Lions Clubs must meet the pre-requisite grant criteria and be endorsed by the incumbent District Governor. Grants from LCSF are approved by its Board of Directors, Trustees or members in general meetings depending on the amount of grant applied for.
