About the Foundation
The Lyone Foundation was established in 2013 by the Lyone family as a means of sharing the success of their national B2B operation COS, with Australians in need.
Founded in 1976 by Dominique Lyone, COS supplies a complete range of solutions for the modern workplace and schools Australia wide. Dominique is now joined by daughters Belinda and Amie, who form part of the executive team.
The Foundation is a Lyone legacy, enabling the family to reciprocate the support they received after arriving to Australia from Egypt in 1967, when Dominique was 13.
Support from charities such as St Vincent de Paul provided Dominique and his family with a platform to thrive in their new country and the foundation is a means of returning this kindness.
To date the foundation has contributed over $3million contributing to charities such as Cottage by the Sea, The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation, Spinal Muscular Atrophy Association of Australia, Dress for Success, Feel the Magic, Soldier On and The Gold Foundation.
