The Larry L. Hillblom Foundation

The Larry L. Hillblom Foundation is a California non-profit public benefit corporation funded through a bequest from Larry L. Hillblom, a respected international businessman who was one of the three founders of DHL Worldwide Express.

By virtue of Mr. Hillblom’s will, substantially all of the Foundation’s funding should be used to support medical research with particular attention to research programs conducted by the University of California in the areas of diabetes mellitus and diseases associated with aging.
