About Napa Valley Forum

Napa Valley Community Foundation is pleased to host quarterly meetings that bring residents, business owners, donors, civic leaders and nonprofit professionals together  in our community. These informal gatherings feature outside speakers who are experts and innovators in the field of philanthropy and social change.

This year, our theme is Finding Common Ground and Creating Community in Post-Election America.  Our goal is to spark constructive, respectful, nonpartisan conversations that reach more deeply – and more broadly – into our community than they have in the past, at a time when such conversations have never seemed so urgently needed.

Napa Valley Forum was created in coordination with Napa Valley Vintners and the Peter A. and Vernice H. Gasser Foundation.

20178 Forum events are open to the public, but pre-registration is required for admission.
