Supporting Big Brothers, Big Sisters
Big Brothers, Big Sisters (BBBS) of the North Bay, a beneficiary of Auction Napa Valley funding, has a longstanding history of serving the Napa Valley. The first chapter of BBBS of Marin began...
NVV makes grants from Auction Napa Valley proceeds to agencies within Napa County who 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 will allocate significant funds to one or two major initiatives that fall within the long-term strategic priority areas that can meaningfully impact the community. The 2013 Strategic Initiative will focus on closing the educational achievement gap in Napa County by providing greater access to quality preschool to prepare children for Kindergarten and educational success.
