Our Mission

Clark Associate Charitable Foundation

We recognize the value of our employees and the support we receive from the local community. Because our company's culture emphasizes responsibility and sharing with others, we are honored to give back to the cities that surround our offices and warehouse locations through the Clark Associates Charitable Foundation. The Foundation was formally organized in 2001 to emulate all Clark companies' principles and beliefs in giving back to the community.

Who We Help

Annual Giving

The Clark Associates Charitable Foundation annually gives over $5 million in grants to non-profits in our communities. These grants serve people in need including programs addressing homelessness, food insecurity, economic challenges, and individuals with physical, intellectual, and social/emotional disabilities. CACF also provides grants to charities serving veterans, senior citizens, and at-risk youth, those returning from incarceration, as well as organizations promoting innovative educational experiences and those supporting the performing and visual arts.

How We Help

Serving Our Communities

CACF evaluates and accepts grant applications for monetary donations each month. Requesting organizations must be registered 501(c)(3) non-profits and generally serve the communities of our businesses.

Grant applications come in two forms: general and employee. Employee grants are available to Clark Associates employees and their immediate family members who volunteer at a charity at least once per month.

Clark employees with family members receiving services from a non-profit are also eligible to apply. General grants are intended for larger donations and require specific information to be eligible for the application process.
