Our Giving Strategy

We have invested $170 million in Napa County’s nonprofit organizations.

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

Thanks to the generosity of our members in creating outstanding lots, the bidders who come from all over the world to experience Auction Napa Valley, the contributions of our strategic partners in helping underwrite our costs and our dedicated volunteers, we have invested $170 million in local nonprofit organizations since 1981.

Our goal is to invest deeply, rather than broadly, in the areas of community health and children's education to create a positive 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.
