Cuba

Beginning in 1995, the Foundation began to financialy support work for U.S. policy with Cuba in a number of ways. A key way in which the Foundation has done this is in paying for both Congressmen and women, and the staffers of Congressmen and women to take diplomatic trips to Cuba. Reasons given for these trips include "fact-finding, study effects of U.S. embargo", "improving U.S./Cuba relations" and "meeting with officials to discuss embargo & human rights". The total cost of the 29 trips the Foundation has sponsored so far comes to $47,483.11. The following is a list of those whom the Foundation has sponsored to make a diplomatic trip to Cuba:[3]
