The foundation believes personal empowerment lifts the human spirit, encouraging individuals to discover pathways to better themselves and contribute positively to society.

This begins with children, imbuing them with confidence and knowledge. It means investing in and discovering solutions for seemingly intractable challenges. It allows for enlightenment and provides inspiration so people continually strive toward healthier and richer lives.

CLF often helps smaller organizations that are not in the spotlight but are doing good work, and prefers projects that may be modest in size but have high impact. We look for programs that promote diversity and inclusion, and counter discrimination and exclusiveness. The aim is to find permanent solutions and to constantly appeal to greater goals.
