About DLF Foundation

DLF Foundation's vision is to transform the communities we work with through high-impact interventions in spheres of education, healthcare, social sustainability, and environment enabling a better quality of life and creating 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.

DLF Foundation transforms communities by delivering high-impact interventions in the following focus areas:


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 children to enable them to realize their true potential and become productive and responsible citizens of tomorrow. Under this Programme, we award scholarships to deserving students from low-income families and support their education in quality schools and institutions up to class XII and beyond. Since the inception of the program in 2011, close to 2000+ students from 19 states have been supported in their education and over 300 have gone on to pursue higher education. The scholars in addition to the academic interventions are also provided counselling and mentoring support through a dedicated Counselling cell established at the Foundation.

In addition to academics, the 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. Over the last 4 years, the Golf Excellence Program has worked with 19 promising youngsters who have won over 50 awards for first place at various regional and national golf championships in the country.

Social Sustainability

DLF Foundation understands that community development does not happen in a vacuum and ensuring that 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, prioritizing a sustainable environment for the larger public good.

Road safety and pedestrian safety is a crucial component of any sustainable ecosystem. Recognizing this, the DLF Foundation is planning safe pedestrian walkways on high-traffic and high-speed public roads that are prone to accidents.

In addition, the DLF Foundation also steps in to build and create public facilities to address development gaps where needed. The Foundation is planning the development of a first-of-its-kind eco-friendly crematorium in Gurugram in association with the Haryana Government.

Through such projects, DLF Foundation strives to make our cities more sustainable and improve the quality of life of all citizens in our urban and rural spaces. Additionally, in times of crisis, DLF Foundation has always stepped up to assist affected communities with multifold impact-driven interventions. The DLF Foundation distributed over 64 lakh cooked and dry meals to the poor and jobless migrants in partnership with ISKCON, Akshaya Patra, and DLF Clubs in NCR during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Along with this, the DLF Foundation donated Rs. 5 crores to the Haryana Government Covid relief fund and made contributions to Tamil Nadu and Telangana government Covid relief funds.


Healthcare is a crucial area of intervention for the DLF Foundation and there are multiple on-ground initiatives and projects in this area which are implemented in partnership with the leading healthcare providers and hospitals.

Facing the COVID-19 Pandemic, DLF Foundation established two fully equipped and staffed COVID-19 Facilities in partnership with “NH Narayana Super Specialty Hospital” and an NGO, “Care India” that have treated Covid-19 infected patients since 2021. Understanding the importance of vaccination as the key to beating this pandemic, the DLF Foundation has partnered with leading Indian hospitals and has so far vaccinated over 30,000+ persons across 5 states. Medical Helplines was started in partnership with Medanta and NH Narayana Super Specialty Hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic to provide online medical consultation with leading doctors.

DLF Foundation also provided COVID Medical and Safety Equipment to Government Bodies and Hospitals across several states to aid in the fight against the COVID pandemic. Medical and safety equipment including CT Scan machines, ventilators, face masks, PPE kits, oxygen concentrators, oxygen cylinders, and Hospital Beds were provided to district administrations of Delhi, Gurugram, Noida, Uttarakhand, Chennai, Bengaluru, Lucknow, Panchkula, and Indore.

Beyond the pandemic, DLF Foundation provides free ambulance services in Gurugram in partnership with leading hospitals and Ambulance Providers. The Foundation has also partnered with mental health experts and the district administration of Gurugram to provide free online mental health services through the platform ‘IWill Care”. The IWill Care platform has already helped over 35,000+ patients who have called the helpline for assistance on mental and emotional health. Furthermore, DLF Foundation is supporting Adharshila for a Family Health Centre in Gwal Pahari, Gurugram to make quality health care affordable for impoverished communities living in and around the area. Over 1,000 beneficiaries have been provided with 4,658 consultations through this initiative. The DLF Foundation has also collaborated with Fortis Healthcare to provide healthcare to underserved communities, with over 515 beneficiaries having been provided healthcare through this initiative till now.

DLF Foundation’s commitment to healthcare also extends to animal welfare and it supports the Pasha Wing of the CGS Trust Hospital which provides free healthcare to street animals, free vaccinations for strays and a feeding program that feeds over 7000 stray dogs every month. To ensure the availability of quality medical care for small animals in Delhi, this year a new branch of the CGS Hospital was established in Sarojini Nagar in partnership with the DLF Foundation. The new veterinary care centre in Delhi is equipped to offer surgical care, diagnostic services, daycare, and grooming services, and also offers separate OPD and IPD for dogs and cats. It has a dedicated team of experienced veterinary doctors alongside an in-house pharmacy and pet store as part of the facility.

Additionally, DLF Foundation also supports All Creatures Great and Small(ACGS) to provide shelter and healthcare to animals in Haryana with more than 7980 animals benefitted through this initiative in the FY 2022-23.

Greening initiatives are a vital component of environmental sustainability efforts as they play a crucial role in lowering carbon emissions, enhancing biodiversity, and improving air quality. Focusing on the environment, the DLF Foundation has undertaken plantation and greening initiatives to create green belts along several public roads across Gurugram, Delhi and Hyderabad.

As part of this initiative, over 51,588 square metres of green cover is being added to several parts of Gurugram in collaboration with the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA).

Working towards increasing the green cover in Delhi, the DLF Foundation has adopted two public parks in Greater Kailash-I, spread over 8 acres.

Additionally, DLF Foundation has partnered with Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation to develop and maintain green corridors in the city, with the plantation being undertaken on the central verge of a 1km long public road between IIT Junction to Radisson Hotel.
