The Napa Valley Vintners makes grants from Auction Napa Valley proceeds to agencies within Napa County that are meeting a documented, demonstrated, community need in the areas of community health and children's education.

Our goal is to invest deeply rather than broadly to have a meaningful, measurable impact on the community. The majority of grants support organizations providing programs for Napa County's neediest residents, focusing on strategies for prevention and early intervention.

Based on these priorities, NVV awards grants from its Community Support Fund to provide substantial and typically unrestricted funding to a core group of about 25 organizations that work within the long-term priorities. NVV funding is an investment in the mission of the organization rather than for specific programs or projects.
