The author and cultural critic, Dwight Macdonald, famously described the Ford Foundation as "a large body of money entirely surrounded by people who want some."
At Napa Valley Community Foundation, we are lucky to be surrounded by a large body of people who want to put some money into our coffers, instead.
With support from hundreds of local donors like you, we are able to fund the most effective nonprofit programs in our community, and pay attention to Napa Valley's biggest needs.
In this season of gratitude and reflection and hope, I extend to each and every one of you our very sincere appreciation.
We couldn't do our work without the scaffolding of your generosity.
With best wishes for the holidays and the New Year ahead,
Terence P. Mulligan
