The Simón Bolívar Foundation was established in 2006 as the 501(c)(3) non-profit, private
foundation of CITGO Petroleum Corporation. The Foundation 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 Foundation supports a wide range of programming and direct support—creating
dividends to benefit the wider community for years to come.
