Lego Systems Establishes Lego Children's Fund to Support
Youth Creativity Programs

Deadline: Quarterly

Lego Systems, Inc. ( http://www.lego.com/ ), the Americas
(North America and Latin America) division of the Lego Group,
a privately held, family-owned firm based in Billund, Denmark,
has announced the formation of the Lego Children's Fund, a non-
profit foundation established to support organizations and pro-
grams dedicated to inspiring and encouraging youth creativity,
thereby improving their quality of life and preparing them for
the future.

The Lego Children's Fund was incorporated with an initial corpor-
ate contribution of $1.2 million dollars. The fund will make cash
grants to nonprofit organizations in the United States with pro-
grams dedicated to a child's exploration of creativity that cater
to children ages birth to 14, with priority consideration for
disadvantaged or at-risk youth. The fund's cash grants generally
will range between $500 and $5,000 each. Additionally, the fund
aims to make one $100,000 grant per year to a single organization
identified and selected by the fund's board of directors.

The fund will award grants to qualified 501(c)(3) tax-exempt
organizations, including educational organizations with specific,
identifiable needs, in these areas of interest: early childhood
education and development; technology and communication projects
that advance learning opportunities; and sport or athletic pro-
grams that concentrate on underserved youth.

The Lego Children's Fund also will provide monetary support to
those qualified local and national organizations to which Lego
employees donate their time, especially those which cater to
children and children's creativity. While the fund will not make
product donations, Lego Systems will maintain its play material
donations program to qualified organizations in Connecticut and
the western Massachusetts area.

The fund will provide grants quarterly. Applicants are invited
to submit proposals anytime throughout the year; however, to
ensure that a request is considered for a particular trustee
meeting, proposals must be received by the following dates:
February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1.

Grant program guidelines and application instructions are
available at the Lego Children's Fund Web site.
