Often these donations are made by a group or district on behalf of an honoree. Created in 1973, the fellowship is named for the founder of Lions Clubs International, Melvin Jones. The fellowship represents humanitarian qualities such as generosity, compassion, and concern for the less fortunate.

The PDG Paul Frederick Spark Plug Award is given to the club with the greatest percent increase in membership. An example would be if there are 10 members in a club at the beginning of the year and at the end of the Lion year they have 15 members they had a net gain of 5 members but a 50% gain in membership.
