Clayton Community
Recreational Foundation

The Clayton Community Recreational Foundation was formed in 1983 as a 501(c)(3) organization whose primary mission is to provide opportunities for individuals and corporations to contribute to the recreational opportunities in the Clayton Community.

Since its founding, the CCRF has funded a variety of projects to support the ongoing operations of the Clayton Parks and Recreation Department. In 2014, the Clayton Community Recreational Foundation took on its largest fundraising activity to date when it entered into a public-private partnership with the Clayton Town Council to build an inclusive playground to meet the recreational needs of children of all abilities. The Harmony Playground will be located on two acres of land at East Clayton Community Park. The CCRF is leading the funding, design and construction of the playground and is committed to a fundraising goal of $800,000.

The project offers business and industry, individuals and organizations a tremendous opportunity to support the Foundation in its goal to make Clayton a leading community for recreational activities for all populations.
