The Clear Lake/Ventura Area Community Foundation is a local, non-profit, charitable affiliate of the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa. We were established to improve the quality of life right here in the Clear Lake/Ventura Area by making grants to support local non-profit organizations and projects now and in the future. The Community Foundation is here to help people make tax-deductible gifts in accordance with their interests.
