Mission Statement

The mission of the Golden Civic Foundation is to invest in the economic and cultural vitality of the Golden Community.

Organization History

In late 1960's several business leaders saw that Golden had many needs for which tax revenues were not available. They founded the Golden Civic Foundation. The Foundation was incorporated on April 14, 1970 under the Colorado Non-Profit Act to raise funds for the betterment of Golden.

Since then, the Foundation has been an instrumental partner in nearly every major building project in downtown Golden, most notably, the Colorado Mountaineering Center, Table Mountain Inn, the Golden Hotel, Gateway Station, and Clear Creek Commons.

The Foundation has also been a strong supporter of Golden's struggling families, first by conducting the capital campaign to build the Christian Action Guild Food Bank, and then providing continuing support through the Barbara Foss fund.

Golden's schools and nonprofit organizations eagerly anticipate the award of over $100,000 in grants, which are the result of the annual Golden Civic Foundation Dinner and Auction held in November.

Testimonials

Those of us who serve on the board of the Golden Civic Foundation do so because we care for Golden and wish to see it remain a strong and vital presence in the lives of our residents. We want to launch Golden's children into the world with the knowledge of what it means to be part of a community, so that they can find it or create it elsewhere. We welcome your gifts of time, talent or treasure as we endeavor to "build a better Golden!"
