Cigar Family Charitable Foundation

About

The Cigar Family Charitable Foundaton was founded in 2001 by the Fuente and Newman families to help children in the cigar producing region of the Dominican Republic. This initiative has developed into a complex serving five surrounding communities.
 
Company Overview
The Cigar Family Charitable Foundation (CFCF) began in 2001 when long time cigar industry business partners, the Fuente and Newman families, formalized the dream of improving people’s lives in the mountainous Bonao region of the Dominican Republic. By focusing on families, they hoped to give the children in this cigar producing region an opportunity for a better future. Consisting of five rural communities, the region suffers from extreme poverty, an overcrowded and inadequate educational system, poor water quality which greatly affects the population’s health and additionally, there is little or no means of transportation for sustainable employment in the area.

What began as a plan to add a wing onto an existing school has grown into the 23 acre Cigar Family Complex. This Complex includes a primary and secondary school a health center, an organic farming program, and a sports and recreational facility. Through the Cigar Family Complex, children and families are being provided with the resources and tools they need to help themselves create opportunities for their future. The founding families are committed to ensuring a positive and productive future for the children of the area. That commitment translates to 100% of the administrative costs being underwritten, allowing the Foundation to say with complete confidence that all contributions made to CFCF will go directly to those children and families served; a statement few charities can make.
