Do more GooD

The Golden Valley Community Foundation uses philanthropy, community initiatives and funding support to address the changing needs and interests of Golden Valley neighbors and friends.


Artist Showcase 21 is back for an encore event - this time at Westwood Hills Nature Center in St. Louis Park.  The Gala opening event is September 24th, 5-8pm and features live music, VR demos from REM5 VR Lab, dinner by Rustic Chef  and of course artwork from our local exhibitors. 

This special FALL edition of Artist Showcase features works from the original Artist Showcase 21 exhibit last winter.  We'll also launch the Call for Art for next year's Artist Showcase 22 show coming up January 14th!

Philanthropy: How it Works

A community foundation is a tax exempt, non-profit, publicly supported philanthropic organization with the long term goal of building permanent, named funds, for the broad-based public benefit of the residents in a given area. 

The common mission of every community foundation is to enhance the quality of life in the local area. Community foundations carry out this very broad mission by building permanent endowment funds and using a portion of the annual income to support a variety of local nonprofit organizations through grants and special projects.



GVCF works to assist many local organizations through our grant programs, including COVID19 Grants and Small Sparks Grants#DoMoreGood

We encourage you to support the below list of local organizations in whatever way you can.  To keep it easy and help the entire community of local organizations, consider an investment in the GVCF Foundation Fund to do more good right here in Golden Valley.
