Help clients elevate their giving

Whether your client has a clear philanthropic path or is just starting to chart their course, we’ve got a Fund type to meet their needs and expert staff to help them make an impact.

Donor Advised Funds for active grantmaking

Personal service, NVCF expertise, and professional management make donor advised funds the go-to choice for many givers. Donors recommend grants to organizations they care about, and we take care of the rest.  Based on donors’ areas of interest we can help them amplify their impact with suggestions of vetted Napa Valley nonprofits and emerging needs.

Starting at a threshold of $25,000, donor advised funds offer immediate tax-deductibility and can be added to at any time, including through their estate.

“The scholarship fund I established at NVCF is helping to shape young lives, which is very gratifying. I described the kind of students I was hoping to support, and NVCF took care of everything else – like guidelines, applications, and legal and tax issues.”
