Grants Awarded to Organizations Serving the Chilton Area

Our Chilton Area Community Foundation partner recently awarded $49,400 in grants from its Chilton Area Community Foundation Fund to 12 nonprofit organizations to improve the quality of life in the greater Chilton area.

The purpose of the Chilton Area Community Foundation Fund is to meet ongoing community needs and improve the quality of life for residents of the Chilton Area School District. Grants are awarded annually in spring through an application and evaluation process involving Chilton volunteers and Fox Valley region community foundation staff.
