Critical to improving the lives of our communities is the CITGO support of initiatives that help improve and save the lives of people in need.
Simón Bolívar Foundation
The Simón Bolívar Foundation (SBF) was established in 2006 as the 501(c)(3) non-profit, private foundation of CITGO Petroleum Corporation. The SBF serves as a catalyst to transform lives by connecting and networking community members to take community action. Initiatives leverage existing resources and invest in organizations to meet the immediate and long-term health needs of the most vulnerable in and from Venezuela, the United States and other countries. The SBF supports a wide range of programming and direct support—benefitting the wider community for years to come.
Muscular Dystrophy Association
Leading the Way for a Cure
Since 1986, we have supported the Muscular Dystrophy Association and its noble work of making life better for individuals with neuromuscular disease and their families. To date, CITGO employees, contractors, marketers, retailers, family and friends have helped raise more than $250 million through a variety of fundraising events, from golf and bowling tournaments to walk-athons, shamrock sales, and auctions.
