Established in 2001, the Chilton Area Community Foundation's mission is to enhance the quality of life for the people of the greater Chilton area.

We are a geographic affiliate of the Appleton, WI-based Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region.

Our donors support charitable work in our communities, across the state or around the world. Contributions to permanent endowments and other charitable funds provide for grants to 501(c)3 and other qualifying nonprofit organizations and projects.

Individuals, families and organizations establish charitable funds with us to give back to the community in ways that help others today and for future generations. It's easy to start a fund with a gift of cash, stock, real estate or almost any asset. We can help you plan a gift that meets your charitable goals. View our list of charitable funds.

Did you can plan for a future charitable gift today by naming us in your will? If you make this or another type of "planned" gift, we would be honored to welcome you into the Himebaugh Legacy Circle
