The Duke of Edinburgh's ambition when he founded the DofE in 1956 was to enrich young people’s lives. Since then, millions of young people in the UK and around the world have done their DofE – discovering new passions and vital skills, building their confidence, resilience and self-belief, making a positive difference in their communities, and having life-changing experiences.
The Living Legacy Fund
Donate to The Duke of Edinburgh's Award's Living Legacy Fund in memory of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.
After The Duke’s death in April 2021, the DofE charity launched the Living Legacy Fund in his memory to support its aim to reach a million young people by 2026. That work is well underway, with a focus on reaching those who face barriers to taking part, such as young people with additional needs, who live in deprived areas or who are in prison.
More than a year on from The Duke's death his legacy - the DofE - is needed more than ever. As young people navigate the challenges left by the pandemic, the DofE’s relevancy and the need to sustain the Duke's vision for young people has never been greater.
With your generous support, the DofE can continue to empower young people to discover new passions, equip them with vital life skills so they are ready to take on life’s challenges and fulfil their potential.
