Claremont Community Foundation

Claremont LogoThe Claremont Community Foundation (CCF) was founded in 1989 at the urging of the Claremont city council. At that time, the council was unable to support all the worthy organizations that approached it for funding. Therefore, the council along with the City Manager, decided to work with other concerned citizens to form an organization that could effectively address the needs of many organizations throughout Claremont and its surrounding areas.


The main goals of the foundation is to create a focal point for philanthropy in the community, and fill identified gaps in the areas of health, education, arts and culture, civic and societal needs. CCF also serves as your partner dedicated to helping individuals, families and organizations fulfill philanthropic desires necessary to make an impact today and for generations to come.

You can support your community through a donor advised fund that lets you enjoy the tax benefit now and distribute your gift over time, or you can contribute to one of several community impact funds.
