Chilton Area Community Foundation

Enhancing quality of life for the people of the greater Chilton area

Our Story

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.

Charitable Funds

Individuals, families and organizations establish charitable funds with us to make a difference 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 create a fund that generates grants to benefit your favorite charitable causes today and long after you’re gone. View our list of charitable funds.

Did you know…

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.


Charitable funds within the Chilton Area Community Foundation have awarded more than $386,000 in grants since the CACF was established in 2001. Most grants are awarded through funds for which the donors recommend recipients or have dedicated all grant money to specific charitable organizations or causes. Competitive grants from funds directed by the CACF Board are awarded through an annual application process. Applications are due January 31.

More than $36,000 in Community Fund grants were awarded in 2017. See the recipients.


Scholarships are available to students from Chilton-area high schools. Most applications are due March 1. Search by school.
