Our Impact

Golden Valley is a thriving community with many individuals and organizations actively seeking to improve our neighborhoods and our city. The Golden Valley Community Foundation (GVCF) is unique as a nonprofit public charity created by and for the people of Golden Valley.

Schaper Park Challenge Course

Compete with your friends or make new ones.

Golden Valley recently celebrated the opening of the state’s first outdoor fitness challenge course in Schaper Park, just west of Theodore Wirth Park off Highway 55. The course allows kids and adults to race against time - and each other - through a 40-yard dash and an obstacle area. This project was supported by generous donors to the Golden Valley Community Foundation.

Sweet Potato Comfort Pies

Bringing people together for Story Circles around race and understanding.

With a grant from Golden Valley Community Foundation, Rose McGee expanded her Comfort Pie project - baking and delivering Sweet Potato pie to communities who have been impacted by violence and racial unrest.
