Every day, we receive a lot of applications from groups and individuals all over the world who request money and/or LEGO products for various kinds of charities and projects, and we are indeed honored and flattered by this manifestation of interest in our products.
But unfortunately, we cannot oblige all of these requests. Therefore, we need to focus on a number of well-defined areas and purposes.
For more than 80 years, the core values of the LEGO Group have been Fun, Creativity, Imagination, Learning, Quality and Caring, and we want to make a positive impact on children’s lives through play.
- projects that are 100% charitable.
- charitable organisations which promote children's play, learning and creativity.
- charitable organisations which support marginalised and vulnerable children.
We do not:
- give financial support
- do sponsorships
- provide donations for lotteries, fairs, prizes, parties, festivals, team building events or the like
- donate products to summer camps, waiting rooms, students projects, libraries or the like
If your project meets the criteria listed above and you wish to enquire about a product donation, please write to: Charity@LEGO.com.
For all charity and sponsorship requests from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, please use the following e-mail address: sponsoring@LEGO.com
