Clintonville Area Foundation

Enhancing and improving the social, cultural, educational, health and general well-being of people in the Clintonville area.

Our Story

Established in 1995, the Clintonville Area Foundation’s mission is to enhance and improve the social, cultural, educational, health and general well-being of people in the Clintonville area. It became a geographic affiliate of the Appleton, WI-based Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region in 2000. Grants from our community fund strengthen the Clintonville area.


Make a gift to the Clintonville Area Foundation, and support our mission to strengthen your community! You may donate online here, or send a gift by mail to P.O. Box 244, Clintonville, WI, 54929-0244.


Most grants are awarded from charitable funds for which the donors recommend the nonprofit organization recipients. However, the CAF accepts applications annually by Dec. 1 from local nonprofit organizations for grants from the Clintonville Community Fund.   Learn about the grant application process here.
