The Lion Foundation is one of New Zealand’s oldest and most respected Charitable Trusts. Since 1988 we have returned over $850 million back to the community, supporting thousands of good causes all around New Zealand. We have many Lion Foundation venues and gaming machines across the country and we consistently return millions of dollars into the community. Last year that equated to over $36 million through over 3,500 grants for community-based organisations across New Zealand. That is 10 good causes every day – causes as diverse as the people who live in those communities: from Northland to Bluff, east coast to west, rural to urban. In fact, there are few Kiwis whose lives have not been touched by a Lion Foundation grant. To reinforce our commitment to our local communities The Lion Foundation has introduced Regional Grants Committee’s which operate across the country. These committee’s ensure that we have local people making local decisions about local funds.
To build the sort of capital required, the Foundation needs significant funds. Your donation can help hundreds of young people to experience the life-changing programmes at the Mistletoe Bay Eco-Village. The more we can raise, the more we will have available each year. This is where we hope you can help.
