Improving the quality of life in the Clintonville area.
Grants from the Clintonville Area Foundation’s Community Fund come from fundraising activities and unrestricted funds that donors established intending that the boards of the CAF and the Community Foundation determine the best ways to use the grant money to meet ongoing community needs. The grants are intended to improve the quality of life for residents of the Clintonville Area School District.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, for its 2020 annual grant cycle the Clintonville Area Foundation is temporarily amending the annual competitive grant guidelines to more aptly respond to the crisis.
Traditionally, this fund has accepted applications for events, projects, and programs that benefit Clintonville residents.
The Foundation will continue to accept requests from charitable organizations for these types of activities as they have in years past. In addition, applicants may request assistance to respond to the COVID-19 crisis and/or for general operating support for organizations whose typical revenue streams have been negatively impacted by COVID – 19.
The Clintonville Area Foundation application (found in our grant portal) has also been shortened for greater efficiency and will be available starting Oct. 13, 2020.
In addition to the list of activities below that CAF has traditionally funded, this year, the Foundation will consider COVID - 19 crisis response activities and requests for unrestricted/general operating support to help sustain services important to Clintonville residents.
Range of grantmaking: Up to $3,000
Deadline: Dec. 1 at 4 p.m. In the event Dec. 1 falls on a weekend, the deadline will be the following Monday at 4 p.m.
