Napa Valley Education Foundation supports the dreams of more than 20,000 students, and we can’t do this without you. Of the 25 schools in Napa County, 50% of students are from low-income households, and 60% are from minority backgrounds. These kids are our future.
It’s simple. Tomorrow’s adults are our underserved kids today.
The programs we fund are the first to be cut. And they’re vital.
Join with your neigbors to change our schools today.
Every day, NVEF supports the district’s work by providing critical extra programs students need to perform their best: music and arts, health and wellness, career preparation, and teacher innovation grants. To do this, we need to raise $1.8 million annually. And we can’t get there without you!
