Mission Statement of the Gold Country Fair Heritage Foundation

The Gold Country Fair Heritage Foundation is a charitable non-profit 501(c)3 corporation comprised of local community citizens, business owners, and civic leaders. The Foundation’s mission is to enhance the Gold County Fair by providing financial support for educational projects that helps our community develop an appreciation for agriculture and our natural resources; that increases awareness of our county’s history; and that provides cultural enrichment, through arts and entertainment. The Foundation is dedicated to projects benefiting the Gold Country Fair and the 20th District Agricultural Association and improving its facilities in the belief that the fairgrounds is an invaluable asset to the community and that a viable fair association enables local civic and social groups to enjoy these benefits of the Foundation’s support.
