Years of Philanthropy
Thank you to everyone who donated through the Bacardi Family Foundation in support of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation! A total of $330,000 was raised through the Annual Gala, individual donations, and donations from the Bacardi Family Foundation. We are grateful to all who contributed through the BFF in support of the Casal Family and the JDRF! The Bacardi Family Foundation is now working with the Cuba Decide project, the citizen movement for plebiscite in Cuba, as our flagship program to support throughout the coming year!
Since its early days in Santiago de Cuba, the Bacardi family has demonstrated a belief that our great blessings come with a responsibility to be a positive force in our community. Individually, family members have carried on this tradition as our numbers have grown and as our community has expanded to encompass much of the globe. Since 1997, with the creation of the Bacardi Family Foundation, we have dedicated resources to augment the efforts of family members who wish to continue in the tradition of social stewardship.

The Bacardi Family Foundation is a 501(c)3  non-profit foundation.  The foundation has no affiliation with Bacardi Limited other than the fact that Bacardi Limited is a family owned company and that this is a foundation comprised of members of that family.  The bat device is a registered tradmark of  Bacardi Limited and is used with permission. The Bacardi Family Foundation does not have the support of the company to speak or act for the company. The Bacardi Family Foundation is a group of family members acting together to carry out our own philanthropic mission. The goal of the Foundation is to affect social good in long lasting ways.   We draw our inspiration from the example of our ancestors in Cuba, who served their society in myriad ways, including as public servants, philanthropists, artists, educators, industrialists, and employers.   

Our current mission focuses on three areas that can have lasting impact for social good:  the preservation of the natural environment – with special emphasis on oceans and coastlines; on human welfare, with special emphasis on health and education; and on preserving and enhancing the culture of the Caribbean, with special emphasis on Cuba.

We aspire to be global in our scope, but we begin at home, with a strong focus on the Caribbean and the surrounding region.

We strive to be a forum where the extended members of the Bacardi Family can join together, share experiences and opinions, and work together to maximize our resources and abilities in order to better serve the communities in which we live and work.  Our goal is to be an organization that creates a space where new members of the family can come to learn about the history of the family and the company, as well as meet other family members and engage in constructive dialogue and productive cooperation.  To that end, we select family members to represent us on the Foundation board, we participate in discussions about what initiatives to support and how, and we give of our time and resources to meet the goals we set for ourselves.
