Who We Are
We envision a world where the workers and families of people who live in affected areas are provided adequate education, healthcare and safe work environments.
The Clean Futures Fund (CFF) raises awareness and provides international support for communities affected by industrial accidents and long-term remedial activities.
We identify and finance humanitarian aid projects and the exchange of information and experiences from affected communities in order to support long-term remedial activities around the world. We are dedicated to strengthening international relations and advancing the United States as a cornerstone of humanitarian aid and a contributing member of the global community.
Transparency and Integrity – We act transparently and with integrity in all relationships and operations.
Leadership – We are constantly working to advocate for men, women and children who have been affected.
Cooperation – Together with our partners we are able to impact the lives of so many who need it the most.

CFF personnel are held to the highest standards of fiscal responsibility
CFF humanitarian projects must have stakeholder support

In 2016, they established CFF and in 2017 human and animal healthcare programs were started that remain immensely successful. Lucas left the organization in late 2021 while Erik continues as co-founder and president of the board and says, “We remain committed to the community and population affected by the Chernobyl catastrophe. Our mission is even more important in light of the unjust aggression against Ukraine by the Russian Federation. We will be here for the long term.”
