As a region, we have experienced disasters before. The Napa Valley Vintners helped establish the Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief fund with a lead gift of $10 million following the South Napa earthquake. Since that time, it has been bolstered by additional NVV fundraising efforts.

In response to this current epidemic, the Napa Valley Community Foundation (NVCF) has approved distributions from the Relief Fund of up to $3.5 million to address the public health and economic impacts of the COVID-19 virus in Napa County. Funding will be distributed over the next eight to 12 weeks in two specific areas:

  • Support for immediate community health needs, such as front-line medical response, childcare for health sector and public safety-first responders and safety-net services like food for the Valley's most vulnerable residents.
  • Emergency Financial Assistance (EFA) for low to moderate-income workers facing serious financial hardship because of the dramatic disruption of the local economy.
