Jeffrey Citron and Suzanne Citron believe in the power of the individual and how one person can inspire a group and then a community to realize even greater goals.

Our Mission

Established CLF in 1999, 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.

Diverse in scope, The Charles Lafitte Foundation (CLF) supports four primary causes: education, children’s advocacy, medical research & initiatives, and the arts. The foundation is flexible in its approach, sometimes giving a one-time grant to initiate a specific project while also making annual contributions.

It looks for a solid track record of setting and meeting objectives, and an inventive approach to problem solving. Understanding the tremendous personal satisfaction derived from volunteering and giving back, CLF hosts annual events such as its golf tournament, with all donations plus a match by the foundation benefiting a single charity.
