History

The Chauncey F. Lufkin III Foundation is a charitable organization founded in 2006 dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals around the world.  Chauncey F. Lufkin III is its Founder and Principal.

The Foundation's focus is on fighting poverty through better education and by finding faster cures for diseases that affect loved ones. Our strategy is to comb the globe for private independent foundations effectively working on these issues, supporting them with financial injections that make a difference. 

To date the Chauncey F. Lufkin III Foundation has lent its support to numerous organizations including The Robin Hood Foundation, The Milken Institute, The Aspen Institute, The Boys and Girls Club of Palm Beach County, Quantum House of Palm Beach County, Apex for Youth, The Joe Torre Safe at Home Foundation, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and BizWorld.  The Foundation seeks to enlarge its circle of giving by proactively adding to its list of annual fund recipients.

Additionally, Mr. Lufkin has also established The Chauncey Lufkin Endowment for Academic Excellence at Southern Methodist University and is a major contributor to St. Lawrence University.
