About Us

The Christian Lebanese Foundation in the World (CLFW) is a non-profit, tax-exempt, 501 (c)(3) organization affiliated to the Maronite Foundation in the World. It was established in Washington, DC in November 2013 in order to reach out to all Lebanese in the USA and help them re-connect with their Lebanese roots. CLFW’s main objective is to preserve Lebanon’s specificity: its pluralistic society, its confessional conviviality, and its cultural diversity, through preserving the demographic balance among the different religious communities in Lebanon. For that purpose, it strives to register, through Project Roots, all Americans of Lebanese descent in the official registry of the Lebanese administration.
