What is A
Community Fund?

The Community Fund is a permanent charitable resource designed to support local causes and organizations. Through individual donations – large and small – a local advisory board is able to make grants to meet the needs and vision of the community. We partner with individuals, businesses and nonprofits to make Clark County a better place to live, learn, work and play.

Spotlight: Doing Good
In Clark County

Clark County Community Foundation Grantmaking will impact students across the county!

The Clark County Community Foundation, a geographic affiliate of BGCF, is making big strides to aid Clark County nonprofits and students across the county. CCCF has awarded $14,500 for start-up costs of the new Mentors and Meals program as well as a $78,000 grant, divided across three years, for the Clark County Community Foundation Scholars Program.

Mentors and Meals is an afterschool program that will work with students from Baker Intermediate School to provide homework help, tutoring, STEM and health education sessions as well as dinner. The pilot year of the program will run from October 2016 to May 2017 and will serve approximately 20 students a day, three days a week. The intergenerational project will bring together Baker students, George Rogers Clark High School students and adult volunteers.

The Clark County Community Foundation Scholars Program will utilize the services of AGS College Planning to provide support to students who face obstacles to obtaining a postsecondary education. Up to ten George Rogers Clark High School juniors will be selected to participate in the program. AGS College Planning will provide professional services to aid in collegiate and trade-school preparation, including aid with applications, finding scholarships, applying for financial aid and choosing a postsecondary path that best fits the students’ career and educational goals.

These grants follow CCCF’s 2015 grant of $100,000 to provide laptop access to all 5th and 6th grade students in the district.
