We have invested more than $120 million in Napa County’s nonprofit organizations.

NVV’s Giving Strategy

The mission of our annual community fundraiser, Auction Napa Valley, is to use the worldwide reputation of Napa Valley wines to enhance the wellbeing of the Napa County community.

Since 1981, NVV has invested more than $120 million to local nonprofit organizations in the areas of healthcare, youth development and affordable housing.

Beginning with the distribution of proceeds from Auction Napa Valley 2012, we refined our giving model to focus on two long-term strategic priority areas: community health and children's education. Our goal is to invest deeply, rather than broadly, to affect the greatest impact on our community. Our nonprofit partners serve residents in Napa County from American Canyon to Calistoga with programs as varied as Adult Day Services for those suffering from Alzheimer's disease, to programs using the latest technology to prepare English language learners for kindergarten.
