Since opening International Diamond Center’s doors nearly 30 years ago, Keith Leclerc’s ambitions have always gone far beyond the diamond business. “The Lord has blessed my family and our company,” he says, “and we will always live by the motto, to whom much is given, much is expected.” This spirit inspired Keith and his family to give back to all of the communities that IDC’s stores serve, in a consistent and authentic manner. Hence, Keith is very proud to introduce The Fifth C Foundation.
“The Lord has blessed my family and our company, and we will always strive to live by the motto, to whom much is given, much is expected.”
The purpose of the foundation is to create an intimate expression of the Leclerc’s family values and an extension of their traditions of philanthropy. The foundation is centered around philanthropic giving and a passion for helping others. The primary focuses leading the foundation’s vision include veterans of war, childhood education, human trafficking and pediatric oncology.
Many of the nonprofits IDC has supported over the years include Boys & Girls Clubs, UF Health Shands Hospital, Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, FARA Energy Ball, Save the Kids Foundation, Children’s Dream Fund, Dali Museum, Academy Prep Centers for Education , Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Operation Healing Forces, New Life Solutions, March of Dimes, Make a Wish Foundation and many more.
The board of directors of “The Fifth C” includes Keith and Peggy Leclerc, Brian and Ashley Stamey, Brian and Danae Leclerc and Chad and Danielle Masters.
