The Lyone Foundation was established by the Lyone family as a means of sharing the success of their national B2B operation COS, with Australians in need.
COS supplies a complete range of solutions for the modern workplace and schools Australia wide. Founded in 1976 by Dominique Lyone, Dominique is now joined by daughters Belinda and Amie, who form part of the executive team.
Established in 2013, 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 exists to return the kindness they were shown.
“It came down to our personal story… So we support Australian charities that are focused on human welfare. The majority of our giving all comes back to that.” Belinda Lyone, Generosity Mag 2017
