The purpose of LISC is to foster and develop the avocation of stamp collecting among Lions, Leos, Lionesses and their families and to increase international goodwill among Lions.The group formed during the 34th Lions International Convention in Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA, in 1951.

Members can participate in activities such as Stamp Exchange and Used Stamp Collection Programmes for charitable and community service, New Issue Services or just the collection of Stamps and First day Covers which bear the Lions emblem.

More than 100 countries have issued Lions logo postage stamps in recognition of Lions club activities. The first Lions stamp was issued by Cuba during the 24th Lions Clubs International Convention in Havana in 1940.
