Description: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 and initiatives, and the arts. CLF helps individuals gain access to schools, from preschool through college, by issuing grants and taking an active role in exploring new approaches to education.

Ways to improve teaching results include providing computer-based and technological education, promoting leadership skills, and offering programs about the arts. In addition, opportunities for ongoing education, such as research projects and conferences, promote continuing education as a goal for people of all ages. Within the CLF education initiatives, it supports programs that:
• Aid students with learning disabilities.
• Target at-risk populations and integrate all learners.
• Provide equal access.
• Offer quality programming using innovative methods.
• Apply data-driven approaches.
• Educate the whole child.
