The Golden & District Community Foundation (GDCF) recognized the support of one of their longest running and largest supporter.
The supporter is not a wealthy individual or family. The supporter is the Columbia Valley Credit Union.
The Columbia Valley Credit Union believes in being very involved in the community that surrounds the branch and supports bursaries, corporate sponsorship and donations to worthy causes. Their support of the GDCF comes in the form of preferred interest rates on their investments. This keeps over $1 million of the GDCF’s permanent endowment invested locally, providing the Golden & Area A community with funds for approximately $50,000 in bursaries, scholarships, and grants each year.
Nola Milum, GDCF Board Chair, and Ryan Watmough, GDCF Executive Director, met with the entire Credit Union team on Wednesday, March 20 to thank them for their help and support. The Golden & District Community Foundation’s mission is to attract and effectively grow permanent funds; provide leadership and administration that helps in addressing significant community needs; and help donors fulfill their philanthropic interests.
