Clio Area Community Fund

The Clio Area Community Fund supports a broad area of interests including arts and culture, community development, health and human services, and recreation.

A local advisory committee meets throughout the year to review grant applications and advise funding to nonprofits that exclusively benefit the City of Clio, Thetford Township and Vienna Township.

In 1991, the Clio Area Community Fund was established under the leadership of Alice Boyse, John Engelhart and Otis Stout. Miss Boyse was the first woman mayor of Clio and also served as a Community Foundation trustee from 1994-1995. Together, Alice, John and Otis conducted a fund raising drive that netted over $5,000 to establish the Clio Area Community Fund.
