Play a role in Golden's largest annual granting program! Print Article Font Size
The Town of Golden’s Community Funds Local Selection Committee needs members!

This Council Committee is responsible for adjudicating the annual granting process for over $300,000 into our community from the Columbia Basin Trust’s Community Initiatives Program.

This very rewarding role requires just 5 mandatory meetings a year, a measure of confidentiality, a commitment to review funding applications and participate in adjudication sessions, and the delight in helping community residents and groups reach their dreams.

Required meeting attendance includes once in early December,  once in mid-February, two consecutively in early March, and one in late March.

The committee of 9 includes a member from Council, the Electoral Director (or designate), two directors from the Golden and District Community Foundation and five other members ‘at large’ from the Golden area.

The 3 vacancies are for ‘at large’ members.  At least 1 of the three candidates must live within the Town of Golden and at least 1 must live in Area ‘A’.
