The Clinton County Foundation is a community foundation providing charitable investing and local grants that enable people and nonprofits to make a lasting and positive impact in our community.
As local citizens committed to stewarding and investing charitable gifts, we thrive on supporting the people, projects, and places that make our piece of Ohio unique and attractive to families and businesses. We see the potential of Clinton County and are passionate about aligning the connections and resources to make our home the best it can be.
The Clinton County Foundation facilitates local solutions to local issues. Charitable giving is the most direct and effective investment we can make in building thriving, resilient local communities. We are actively engaged in mobilizing generosity and aligning connections and resources to continually improve and enhance our county. Our financial resources are stronger than ever, and we have the resolve to match.
We provide support where it’s needed most. The Clinton County Foundation encourages a focus on three areas that deliver the greatest impact for charitable giving.
We support educational needs throughout the learning journey, from pre-school to high school to trade school to college for our entire community.
Supporting the health and wellness of our neighbors is important because good health is a significant component of any community’s effectiveness and ability to serve its citizens.
The Clinton County Foundation believes that economic development is a key factor in building a financially strong and overall healthy community and therefore supports funds in this area.
Community foundations are tax-exempt charitable organizations that are dedicated to improving the lives of people in a defined local geographic area. They bring together the financial resources of individuals, families, and businesses to support effective nonprofits in their communities and play a key role in identifying and solving community problems.
