Financial Assistance to Golden Businesses

The Golden Civic Foundation was organized as a 501(c)(3) public foundation in 1970 to operate for charitable and civic purposes for the citizens of Golden.  Throughout its history, the Foundation has provided loans to charitable organizations, businesses, and governmental agencies in the City.

The Foundation has provided loans to various small businesses when they were unable to obtain conventional financing. The funds were used as bridge loans until permanent financing could be obtained, to provide working capital, or to cover building improvements.

The purpose of each loan must be to advance the charitable purposes of the Golden Civic Foundation.  Funds are loaned only to people, businesses or organizations that are or will be operating within the city limits of the City of Golden.  The Foundation does not make loans to organizations whose primary purpose is to influence legislation or to participate in any political campaign.
