About DLF Foundation

DLF Foundation was established in 2008 as the philanthropic arm of the DLF Group. The DLF Foundation's vision is to transform communities we work with through high-impact interventions in spheres of education, healthcare and social sustainability with the resolve of enabling a better quality of life backed by sustainable ecosystems for all stakeholders within the immediate and extended communities.

We accomplish this through the creation of customized programmes and innovative institutions that address India’s current development challenges and by providing a platform for the foundation to collaborate with other institutions, professionals and subject matter experts to deliver sustained, magnified impact across communities of interest.

Education:DLF Foundation is committed to driving excellence along with inclusivity in education, helping shape the next generation of India. DLF Foundation’s flagship education programme 'DLF CARES' was established with the premise that every child has the right to quality education and the primary objective is to nurture and handhold them to realise their potential and become productive and responsible citizens of tomorrow.

In addition to academics, DLF Foundation also believes in nurturing the leaders of tomorrow in the field of sports. In line with this vision, the Foundation set up the Golf Excellence Program in partnership with DLF Golf Academy in 2017 to encourage the next generation of golf champions in India.

Social Sustainability: DLF Foundation understands that community development does not happen in a vacuum and ensuring sustainable ecosystems are created is a crucial social commitment that impacts our development as a society.

Keeping this in mind, we work towards the goal of sustainable cities, prioritising a sustainable environment for the larger public good.

Additionally, in times of crisis, DLF Foundation has always stepped up to assist affected communities. During the first wave of Covid-19 in 2020, DLF Foundation distributed over 64 lakh meals to those in need.

In the past, DLF Foundation has also significantly contributed to disaster relief for marginalised communities impacted by devastating natural disasters.

Healthcare: Healthcare is a crucial area of intervention for the DLF Foundation both through on-ground initiatives as well as in partnership with healthcare organisations and hospitals.

DLF Foundation’s commitment to healthcare also extends to animal welfare with our partnership with CGS Hospital, providing free healthcare to street animals and through community outreach programs.

Awards and Recognitions: DLF Foundation has been acknowledged nationally and internationally for its work in the social sector. From appreciation and citations from government bodies to various CSR awards and trophies, we have been honoured for our work on multiple platforms.

Chairperson's Message

DLF Foundation - Mrs. Pia Singh - Chairperson

The DLF Foundation has responded to the changes in the environment with care and concern towards communities and families. Rapid social divides have reaffirmed our endeavours to empower youth, nurture innate talents and develop sustainable social institutions, which will serve communities in the future.

We remain committed to driving high-impact transformation across communities, and interventions in spheres of education, health care and social sustainability with the resolve of enabling a better quality of life for all.

While combating Covid innumerable initiatives were taken to augment health care capacities both at the city and state level.

Our educational initiatives focus on vulnerable sections of society, which include learning programmes for the under-privileged and street children across the country.

In the area of social sustainability, from crematorium grounds to ecological parks, we dignify the lives of people through mental health, educational support and health drives. We continue our commitment to ensure pedestrian safety and security. The Foundation has endeavoured to magnify its impact and involve itself in the challenges of the nation.

For us at the Foundation, CSR is sustained engagement with quality which will create opportunities, strengthen a free and flexible environment and leave a legacy of sharing, caring and empathy.

As we continue our efforts, DLF Foundation pledges to transform lives, build communities of care and step into a new world by strengthening our human capital.
