To maximize our positive impact in the community, the Claremont Community Foundation develops, supports, and implements programs and initiatives on an on-going basis.
Key needs throughout the community are identified, and by raising funds and serving as stewards of personal philanthropy, CCF is able to respond with resources to support programs that enrich the lives of youth and adults throughout Claremont, and local area communities.
CCF programs range in size and scope, some programs are a result of donor-advised funds, and other programs are supported through the Community Impact or Arts field of interest funds.
Grants from the Claremont Community Foundation (CCF) have provided support for hundreds of programs and organizations that serve Claremont and local surrounding communities.
Funds for CCF grants are mainly generated by donor-designated and unrestricted contributions from caring individuals, businesses, and organizations in and around Claremont.
Artist of the Month
Our Artist-of-the-Month program features the work of a new artist each month. The Chamber offices are open for the artist’s reception during the Claremont Art Walk, every first Saturday of the month. This program celebrates the work of local artists and continues to fulfill our mission of supporting the arts in the community.

Public Sculpture Project
In 2008, the Claremont Community Foundation in partnership with the City of Claremont, established an on-going public sculpture project. The project was created to enhance the aesthetic and cultural quality throughout the community by featuring a sculpture in the park located at the corner of Indian Hill Blvd. and Harrison Avenue.
The program provides public exposure to the visual arts, and is intended to inspire a sense of place among the residents of the community. The sculpture is owned by the artist and displayed at the site temporarily, after which it is returned to the artist.
Since the project was created, local artists Jim Mitchell, Barbara Beretich and Christina Cassaro have displayed their works. Artists wishing to be considered for this project are invited to submit their resumes and proposals to the Claremont Community Foundation.
