EMERGENCY GRANT

Emergency Grant Allocations

During the Pinery Fire of November 2015, Mallala, Gawler, Gilbert Valley and Balaklava Lions Clubs were involved in seeking emergency grants for approximately 100 families. These are the monetary grants given to individuals and families in cases of extreme emergency…unfortunately usually following a devastating disaster. This amounted to Approximately $300,000.
And also earlier in 2015, the Sampson Flat fire emergency grants of $53,500 for 18 families through Torrens Valley Lions Club.

It has been reported that 12 homes were lost yesterday as a result of the Yorke Peninsula Fire. I will be following up with local YP Clubs, such as Maitland, Stansbury Dalrymple and Minlaton in the next couple of days to see what help is needed.

COMPASSIONATE GRANT

Compassionate Grant Allocations

At the National Convention in Canberra in 2013 Dick Smith donated one million dollars to the Australian Lions Foundation..one of his reasons for choosing Lions was because he knew that all money donated would be used in the way he specified, and not taken up with wages and expenses etc. His stipulation in giving us this money is that it be used for Compassionate reasons to families or an individual who may be suffering financial hardship through illness or other circumstances beyond their control. This money cannot be used for any other type of Grant Application. In the first instance the decision lays with the Chairman of the Foundation, who then consults with the other Directors to form a final decision.
