What We Do
We create a thriving community by prioritizing environmental sustainability, economic vitality, social equity, and cultural appropriateness.
In 2021- 2022, Golden CED co-created a plan with residents, a strategy, based on the priorities defined by the community.
This strategy will inform Golden CED’s annual work plans and will provide structure for businesses and organizations to become involved in CED initiatives. To be truly successful with the strategy, it will take the entire community; engaged residents, local governments, and other community organizations to step up and work on initiatives within their scope, or interest.
Highlights on some of our initiatives:
Golden Community Economic Development is a backbone organization in our community. In addition to our own projects, Golden CED staff offer additional capacity to individuals and organizations that have ideas for the betterment of the community.
CED staff can help to convene stakeholders, facilitate meetings, advise on fundraising and grant writing efforts, help people network in the community, and more. We believe in the value of collective impact and the strength of community partnerships.
