The DHL UK Foundation is a UK registered charity that believes all children and young people should be supported to reach their potential and grow into the best person they can be.

To achieve it’s mission, the DHL UK Foundation works in partnership with the DHL businesses in UK, likeminded charity partners and DHL employees nationwide.

Further information about The DHL UK Foundation:

  • Founded in 1988, we encourage all DHL employees to get involved in the communities in which you live and work, through fundraising and volunteering.
  • As a charitable company limited by guarantee and registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales, the DHL UK Foundation is independent of DHL, but strengthened by close ties with the company.

By working in partnership with national charities and through our own programmes we focus on:

  • Education
  • Employability
  • Engagement

The range of programmes run by the DHL UK Foundation are only open to UK-based employees of DHL. We do not make grants or donations to individuals in the form of sponsorship or funding.

We work hard with our partner organisations to deliver our charitable aims and we are fully committed to our current projects, so we cannot make grants to other charities or organisations who contact us directly.
