Who we are and our aim
The LEGO Foundation aims to build a future where learning through play empowers children to become creative, engaged, life-long learners.
We are a Danish corporate foundation based in two locations – Billund, Denmark and Baar, Switzerland. Our core team of dedicated employees has several nationalities but one shared passion: to make children’s lives better – and communities stronger – by making sure the fundamental value of play is understood, embraced and acted upon.
Our work is about challenging the status quo by re-defining play and re-imagining learning. Re-defining play means changing the way people understand the importance of play –especially the huge value it has in helping children learn essential skills for life in the 21st century.
To re-imagine learning we want to work with parents, carers, school systems, institutions and governments to use the transformative power of play to improve learning for millions of children all over the world.
Our focus is on children aged 0-12, with a special emphasis on early childhood where children develop most rapidly, both physically and mentally.

Please note that the LEGO Foundation does not accept unsolicited requests. To deliver on our strategy, we have decided to focus our resources on seeking out programmes and partners who are tightly aligned with our vision and will advance it very directly.
