Created in 1992, the Foundation currently has an endowment of $204,175. Gifts from residents and former residents who believe in the future of the community have created a strong base of funding. But together we can do more. Each gift to the Foundation makes larger dreams possible. By working collectively, donors can achieve things that individuals cannot. Investments in the Foundation help to guarantee that the Clyde area will always be an amazing place to call home. Please consider adding a gift to the endowment. For more information email us at the link to the left. Anyone can become a member of the Foundation for just $15 per year ($30 per couple) to show support for community investment. The Foundation can accept gifts in many forms – cash, grain, land, stocks, or through a bequest. Talk to your financial advisor about the best way to leave a legacy through the Clyde Area Foundation.
