ABOUT THE FOUNDATION
Inspired by their tremendous humanitarian needs, as well as wanting to give back to the country that produces the best cigars in the world, in 2001 the Fuente & Newman families created the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation.
The Foundation partnered with the Instituto Dominicano de Desarrollo Integral (IDDI). A dominican-based nonprofit organization that for the last 30 years has been fighting poverty by providing training & the skills necessary to make a positive change for those living in both urban and rural regions of the Dominican Republic.
Through education, disease prevention and most importantly, empowerment, lives of both the children and families are changing. Students and parents now have access to clean drinking water, quality education, vocational programs and much more. Thanks to the efforts of CFCF, IDDI and generous people like you, for the first time , these children are able to dream of a future.
