Grant Guidelines:

The LEGO Children’s Fund will provide quarterly grants for programs, either in part or in total, with a special interest paid to collaborative efforts and in providing matching funds to leverage new dollars into the receiving organization. We will give priority consideration to programs that both meet our goals and are supported in volunteer time and effort by our employees.

The Foundation awards grants to qualified tax-exempt organizations (as determined under section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue code) including educational organizations as defined in USC 26 § 170 (C) with specific, identifiable needs primarily in these areas of support:

  • Early childhood education and development that is directly related to creativity
  • Technology and communication projects that advance learning opportunities

Grant-seekers must also be aware of what the LEGO Children’s Fund does not support as identified in the Areas of Exclusion.

Interested parties must complete an eligibility quiz, be approved and invited to submit a grant proposal as specified in our Application Procedures.

Grant Amounts:

There are no restrictions on grant amounts up to the quarterly allocation. Typical awards, however are between USD $500 and USD $5,000.

Funds not allocated in a given quarter will be available for grants in subsequent quarters.

Grant Time Limit:

Each grant will be subject to a specified time frame for completion. One appeal to this time frame may be requested due to mitigating circumstances.  This appeal will be to the Grant Administrator.

Geographic Limitations:

While our main interests are local, there are no restrictions based on geography. The LEGO Children’s Fund supports local and national programs in the United States.  Applications from Connecticut and Western Massachusetts may be given preferential consideration, as this is where we have established North American headquarters and where our employees live, but applications from other geographical areas will not be excluded.
