The money will be available in the form of $1000 grants to projects that make a difference to the community in the fields of youth, vision, hunger or the environment.

The Lions Club of Booragoon is one of more than 100 of Australia’s clubs chosen to form “Team 100”, which will help to roll out the grant opportunity locally.

Local organisations, initiatives and projects in the Melville region and the surrounding areas are encouraged to make the most of the $1000 grant opportunity offered by the club.

Lions Australia executive officer Rob Oerlemans said the Community 100 program provided local clubs with the opportunity to reach out to communities and create new partnerships.

“If you can think of a community need, the chances are there’s a Lions club doing something about it,” he said.

“For almost 100 years Lions have shared a core belief that community is what we make it and the Lions Australia Community 100 program celebrates this belief.

“The program brings together our clubs in a campaign designed to drive awareness, while also helping to fund new projects in the communities we serve.”

The program is open for submissions until June 30 and entrants should apply online via this link.

Booragoon Lions will then select three finalists, from which Lions Australia will nominate a winning project by mid-August.
