Honoring some of Golden’s special niches

Civic foundation gives awards to grant recipients at luncheon

It’s a wonderful process getting to see all of the outstanding things that go on in the Golden community. And the Golden Civic Foundation is proud to help support these efforts, said Dr. Rick Goad, president of the Golden Civic Foundation.

A couple hundred people representing Golden-based nonprofit organizations attended the Golden Civic Foundation’s grant recipient luncheon,March 6.

This year, 40 organizations were awarded grants, funding a variety of efforts — arts and entertainment, community events, recreation, service clubs and schools. For example, the Golden Police Department will use its grant money to help fund the 18th annual Golden Night Out event in August, and the Coral Creek Music Project will use the funds to expand its pilot program at one school to all Golden elementary schools.

In addition, the Golden Civic Foundation gave out a couple of special grants this year. One went to the Foothills Art Center to help renovate its gallery. Another was a $16,695 donation to fund replacing the front steps of the American Mountaineering Center.

All of the Golden-based clubs, groups, organizations and individuals have a special niche in the community, Goad said.

“When you add all those niches up,” he said, “it makes Golden a very special place.”
