Community Grant

The Community Grant Program provides funding to local registered charities in Golden and Area A from the interest earned on our Community Endowment Fund, the Bud Stewart Memorial Fund, the Crandlemire-Keenleyside Family Legacy Fund, and the Golden Log Truckers Association Fund. Applications are accepted on Oct 21st of each year.

In 2017, $18,596 was granted to support the following projects:

  • Golden Community Social Services Coop towards the set up of a local housing advisory committee which will facilitate strategic alliances among groups with housing needs, and begin the process of ensuring that appropriate housing is available to community members.
  • Abbeyfield House towards the purchase of a propane hot water heater, addressing the sustainability of a key housing option for seniors in our community.
  • Golden Community Resource Society for the Peer-to-Peer Seniors Support program which focusses on ensuring that seniors have access to the support and the resources they need to live well in the community.
  • Golden and District Search and Rescue towards the purchase of mountain rescue and helicopter sling equipment. A significant portion of the total funding provided by the Foundation came from the Allen Williams Memorial Fund, a directed fund set up particularly to support search and rescue activities in Golden and Area A.
