In 2001, the Fuente and Newman families, longtime business partners in the cigar industry, came together with the vision of improving children's lives in the Bonao region of the Dominican Republic. What began as a simple dream of adding a wing onto the local elementary school has evolved into Cigar Family Charitable Foundation's 23-acre complex that includes: primary and high schools; health center; sports and recreation facilities; and an organic farming area. Today, the Complex serves well over 5,000 families and has achieved tremendous results.
Prometheus International, Inc. and God of Fire, Inc. have raised over $1 million for Cigar Family Charitable Foundation since 2000.
Because the Fuente and Newman families pay all administrative expenses such as accounting and legal, 100% of the donations benefit the children and families served by Cigar Family Charitable Foundation (www.cf-cf.org).
