The SML Foundation is a registered 501 c3 non-profit entity within the Scandia Marine Lions Club. The goals of the foundations are to continue the efforts of the Lions Club to benefit the communities that we serve. In past fiscal years, the Scandia Marine Lions has contributed over $80,000 towards community needs. The foundation welcomes donations from both individuals and businesses. All donations are returned to the community in the form of grants. Requests for Foundations grants are reviewed by the Foundation Board of Directors for approval.
Our Vision was to create a foundation within our community that serves current needs and builds on the future. Tax deducitble donations from community members like you will stay in the community.
