Charles Lafitte Foundation

The Charles Lafitte Foundation is a private family foundation founded in 1999 by Suzanne and Jeffrey Citron. The Foundation is committed to helping groups and individuals foster lasting improvement on the human condition by providing support to education, children's advocacy, medical research and the arts.

To fulfill this mission, the Foundation acts as grantmaker, innovator and volunteer for four main programs: Education, Children's Advocacy, Medical Research & Issues, and The Arts.

The Foundation has no deadlines or standard forms. They prefer concise, well-organized proposals. In no case should the body of the proposal exceed 10 double-spaced pages. The Foundation prefers proposals sent by e-mail. A brief letter of inquiry, rather than a fully developed proposal, is an advisable first step for an applicant, conserving his or her time and allowing for a preliminary response regarding the possibility of support. The Foundation will contact you if they desire a full proposal. Due to the large number of inquiries they are unable to respond to all requests.

If you have any questions regarding the process please contact Foundation president Jennifer Vertetis by email or mail (The Charles Lafitte Foundation c/o Jennifer Vertetis 29520 2nd Ave SW, Federal Way, WA 98023)
