- About Us
Recognizing that the community's challenges and needs will change, donors have established community endowment funds to address the changing needs of Clinton County now and forever. Donors can entrust the Foundation with the selection of the most needed programs to receive grant funding based on a competitive process.
The Clinton County Community Foundation has awarded $65,677 in competitive grants and $38,990 in rapid response grants for 2020.
Donors may identify one or more charitable organizations to receive an income stream forever. If at some time in the future the named charity is no longer recognized as a 501(c)(3) organization, the Foundation Board of Directors has the variance power to select another organization with a similar purpose to benefit from the fund.
In 2020, the Clinton County Community Foundation distributed $282,979 in designated/agency grants to organizations as identified by donors.
Donors may be actively involved in the grantmaking process by recommending which qualified charitable organizations should receive grants from their donor advised fund. These flexible funds enable donors to address a wide variety of issues as their charitable interests and priorities change over time.
In 2020, the Clinton County Community Foundation distributed more than $111,901 in donor advised, special projects and non-permanent grants.
The Clinton County Community Foundation was established in 1996. The purpose of the Foundation is to serve the interests of donors, to make grants, and to act as a catalyst around issues of community importance in Clinton County.
