The Foundation was formed in 2004 by the Clemmons Rotary Club and was named the “Clemmons Rotary Foundation Inc.”
In 2011, the name was changed to “Clemmons Community Foundation Inc.” to reflect its wider base of contributions and its larger scope of people being served. At the same time, its Board of Directors was expanded to include non-Rotary members. The Board is comprised of 13 local business and civic leaders, each with a history of positive community involvement.
The Foundation is recognized by the federal government as a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit charitable organization and most donations are tax deductible.
In addition to funding its own charitable projects which often relate to the health and safety of area residents, the majority of grants go to support projects managed by other non-profit groups serving the Clemmons area. The Foundation has also provided a financial conduit between the Clemmons Village Council and other non-profit organizations.
