Enhancing and improving the social, cultural, educational, health and general well-being of people in the Clintonville area.
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.
The Clintonville Area Foundation is accepting nominations until July 31, 2019 for its annual Community Heroes Award.
This award was established in 2011 by Clintonville native Dan Olk to recognize and celebrate outstanding volunteer service that greatly enhances Clintonville area communities. The award, which comes with $2,000 for the winner to donate to local charities, is supported through the Clintonville Area Foundation. It will be presented during the Foundation’s 2019 annual fund-raiser, “The Art of Living/Giving” on September 14, 2019 at Clintonville Riverside Golf Course.
Nominees must meet the following criteria:
Nomination forms are available online and at these local places: Clintonville Public Library (75 Hemlock St.), Clintonville Public School District office (45 W. Green Tree Rd), and Clintonville Area Chamber of Commerce office (1 S. Main St.). Please send any questions by email to [email protected] or call Dan Olk at (515) 268-9207.
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.
In 2017, scholarships totaling $9,000 were awarded to (l-r): Nicole Seefeldt, Catherine Morse, Madelyn Didier, Taylor Zeinert, Ruchita Patel, Teressa Friedrich and Claudia Spreeman.

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 a list of our charitable funds.
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.
