The Clintonville Area Foundation (CAF), an affiliate of the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region, is accepting applications from eligible Clintonville area charitable organizations for grants.
These grants will come from the foundation’s endowment funds that support projects or programs that enhance the general community or improve the health and general well-being of people of the Clintonville area.
Grants support projects or new programs with clear goals and financial accountability, and for which a moderate amount of grant money can make a significant impact on an area of need. Grants are made for a broad range of purposes in the area of arts and culture, health and human services, historic preservation, community development, education, and environment.
The grants are awarded through a competitive process. Organizations eligible to receive grants are those determined by the IRS to be public charities. The application deadline is Dec. 15, 4 p.m.
Complete guidelines and a grant application form can be found by visiting the Clintonville Community Foundation website at www.clintonvillefoundation.org.
