The Lifesaver Foundation was formed in 1985, with a $200,000.00 donation from the original manufacturer of our Lions mints, Mr Harold Quinton, who wanted to assist in promoting the wonderful work done by Lions Clubs across Australia.

The founding Trustees were Harold Quinton, John Douglas, Jim McLardie OAM, Ron Reavley BEM and Ern Berge Phillips.

Initially the Foundation made grants to clubs for static displays at shopping centres, fetes and parades to help promote Lions work. Since 1993 the Foundation embarked on a series of innovative projects to achieve public awareness on all the wonderful projects the Lions Clubs are involved in.  For many years, the Foundation has produced and supplied promotional stickers to Lions Clubs around Australia.

Mr James MacLeod – Chair
