The Lyone Foundation has been established to create a legacy that will empower Australians to build a safe and positive future.
Created in 2013, the Lyone Foundation was the legacy of the Lyone family after their journey from Egypt to Australia. The ultimate goal of the Lyone Foundation is to contribute $1 million to Australian charities each year.
With a focus on human welfare, our area of impact is small to medium sized registered charities that support disadvantaged, vulnerable and marginalised people across Australia. Donations have recently been made to the following organisations:
- The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation – Assisting six carers obtain their certificate to support children with learning difficulties
- Cottage by the Sea – Funding a camp for children from disadvantaged backgrounds
- Spinal Muscular Atrophy Association of Australia – Purchasing three Cough Assist machines to prolong the lives of sufferers (see attached email for more info)
- Dress for Success – Funding the addition of a new staff member
