Kim Mangle, Executive Director
Kim Mangle is proud to be taking on the role of Executive Director at the Golden Civic Foundation. Kim is a natural community connector and loves to build positive collaborations and relationships. She’s a familiar face around Golden, stopping to say hello to people she knows when she’s out and about town, and always excited to meet new people. She takes pride in having positive relationships with Golden’s nonprofits, business leaders, city staff, and members of the Golden community. She has worked hard and with genuine heart to give back to her community, and believes that everyone who lives or works in Golden has an important role to play in making the city such a special place. Kim brings over 25 years of diverse experience leading nonprofits and government agencies on complex fundraising, community engagement, and strategy projects. Prior to joining the Golden Civic Foundation, she owned her own nonprofit and government consulting firm for 15 years. Her firm provided consulting to dozens of nonprofit organizations and civic institutions, as well as several private companies. She voluntarily launched the Golden Nonprofit Leadership Roundtable (GNLR) in 2017, which is now a thriving networking and professional development group that resides within the Golden Civic Foundation. She also volunteered extensively at Shelton Elementary School, helping to establish their school and community garden and leading their School Accountability and Health and Wellness Committees. She served for two years as Shelton’s representative on the Golden Schools Foundation board. She has been a proud member of Golden Women in Business (GWiB), where she received the inaugural Eliza Boyd West Community Leadership Award in 2021, and her consulting firm was a member of the Golden Chamber of Commerce. Kim grew up in Golden’s foothills and attended Golden’s local public schools. She’s a graduate of CU Boulder (Go Buffs!) and she earned her master’s in public administration at CU Denver. She and her husband moved back to Golden in 2009 to raise their two children, after having lived in Denver and Ann Arbor, Michigan. They have been so thankful to call Golden home. When they’re not at work, you can find them out enjoying all of the wonderful things that Golden has to offer—often on a bike or in their hiking shoes, and with their two energetic Australian Shepherds in tow.
