The River Hills/Lake Wylie Lions Community Foundation was founded in 2004 by the River Hills/Lake Wylie Lions Club with the express purpose of supporting philanthropic individuals in our community in achieving their long-term giving goals.

The Foundation seeks to build assets for the long-term benefit of the community. The Foundation fund acts as an endowment wherein all donations’ principle amounts are preserved and only the earnings are used. Donations to River Hills/Lake Wylie Lions Club Charities are used annually whereas donations to the Foundation go to its investment account to provide an income stream For Ever. The Foundation is a separate 501(c)(3) charity within the River Hills/Lake Wylie Lions Club umbrella.

Our investment policy adopted from the beginning has been to achieve long-term total returns that are in excess of the average returns for a balanced portfolio. The investment strategy involves underweighting and overweighting various asset classes based on the assessment of risk and return potential of each asset class at any point in time.
