‘Tis the season of giving in Yountville and the Napa Valley! Our community has been hit hard this year by the COVID-19 and recent fires. It is more important than ever for us to come together as a community and give back to our local nonprofits.
Giving Tuesday is Tuesday, December 1! Giving Tuesday is a great opportunity to make the most of your donation to our local non-profits.
Below are Yountville Chamber of Commerce’s non-profit partners.
The Art Association Napa Valley is a private, nonprofit arts organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for the Napa Valley by supporting arts and culture throughout the county. We provide funding, advocacy, marketing and exhibition opportunities for local artists. A large portion of member dues and a percentage of art sold contributes annually to the AANV Scholarship Fund, which benefits local high school and college students who wish to pursue artistic careers.
The mission of Crush Cancer Napa Valley is to assist local cancer fighters during treatment. By providing funds for life’s basic necessities, groceries, utilities, childcare and transportation, we hope to ease the burden for patients and their caregivers and allow them to focus their energy on the fight.
NAPA HUMANE SOCIETY
We believe that the answer to the problem of homeless, abandoned, and neglected companion animals lies in changing attitudes and practices that lead to irresponsible pet ownership. Our programs and services are designed to address the needs of companion animals – but also to provide support, education, and assistance for the people who care for and about them. Because the humane treatment of companion animals is such an important indicator of healthy communities, we’ve grown to consider Napa Humane a community service organization.
Donations to the Museum support our arts, education and preservation programs.
Membership dues currently make up less than 10% of our annual operating budget.
The Napa Valley Museum is dedicated to enriching the cultural fabric of our community through exhibitions, collections, educational programs and creative activities that promote knowledge and understanding of art, nature and history.
We’re what happens when artists take the lead: a joyous adventure of whimsical creation. Located in the California Wine Country, Transcendence is a nonprofit musical theatre company like none other. Our shows take place outdoors in Jack London State Historic Park, nestled in the ruins of a winery destroyed by the 1906 earthquake. At its back are rolling vineyards, and when the sun sets, it’s the most beautiful place to be. We call it our Field of Dreams.
The Yountville Kiwanis Club is a small but mighty club made up of 28 very dedicated members! We are always looking for new members who have a desire to give back!
We are a 3-2-1 Club making it easy for busy people to still give back. We meet once a month for dinner on the 2nd Thursday!
In this year when flexibility and resilience have been so essential, CanDo’s Napa Valley Give!Guide 2020 is creatively meeting the challenge. Our online only campaign, December 1-31, has been designed to make it easier than ever for local nonprofits to participate. This year 57 local non-profits are featured!
