Mission

The Charles Lafitte Foundation (CLF) supports innovative and effective ways of helping people help themselves and others around them to achieve healthy, satisfying and enriched lives.  The Foundation supports organizations working in four main areas: education, children’s advocacy, medical research & issues, and the arts.  The Foundation underwrites programs that can become self-sustaining with long-term commitment and measurable impact.  In determining grants, CLF looks for solutions that lead to independence and self-empowerment for individuals, and to the establishment of effective, long-standing programs and organizations.
