Invest in Youth
We believe that all young people have the potential to become confident and contributing adults. However, while gifts and talents are evenly distributed, access and opportunities are not.
Our grants have helped to level the educational playing field since 2007. We identify and invest in the most effective nonprofits and public agencies that help students build academic and leadership skills to take them from preschool to college.

Stories of our impact
Leticia arrived from Mexico before 6th grade, without a word of English or a single friend. Daily summer sessions in the Aim High program, funded by Napa Valley Community Foundation, brought her supportive friends and teachers whose one-on-one coaching helped her understand class materials and activities. When she started at Silverado Middle School last August, she felt well-prepared academically and empowered to self-advocate when she didn’t understand. Leticia credits Aim High for boosting her confidence and helping her raise her grades from Cs and Fs to As and Bs.
