We help givers feel like a force for good

You want to make a difference. We have the knowledge and expertise to help. Even when our national dialogue seems divided, your local giving makes progress on key issues, builds resilient communities, and makes our Valley more cohesive and prosperous. Join our network of Napa Valley donors and we’ll connect you to programs and people making powerful, positive changes.

“NVCF understands the kinds of charitable projects our company wants to support, and they also understand community needs. That’s why we established a charitable fund with them.”

A bird’s eye view of needs and opportunities

In the nonprofit sector, perspective is a luxury good. And we are fortunate to have it. As a donor, you benefit from our deep giving experience and sweeping knowledge of the Valley’s charities. We know where there are great leaders, new ideas, critical gaps, and looming issues. We share what we know with you. The result: keener focus and well-informed giving.
