Grant Priorities

  • Early childhood education
  • Increasing academic proficiency and success
  • College and/or career access and preparation
  • Youth leadership development
  • Vocational training

Proposals must be submitted by April 12, 2024, following the grant guidelines available on our website.

In 2007, NVCF launched our Invest in Youth Initiative, aimed at addressing educational disparities among Napa County’s low-income students. Through this initiative, we are dedicated to partnering with local organizations to empower children and youth—particularly those from low-income or immigrant families—enabling them to thrive in their educational journeys and lay the foundations for a future where they can be confident and active contributors to society.

We welcome inquiries and are available for discussions before submission.
