Napa Valley Education Foundation

Napa’s students deserve best-in-class education, that’s why Napa Valley Education Foundation invests in enrichment programs that support Napa’s public schools with music, career readiness, wellness, and classroom innovation!

We are the Foundation for the Future!
Supporting all students in Napa County.

We are the foundation for our kids' futures.

Napa Valley Education Foundation supports the dreams of more than 20,000 students, and we can’t do this without you. 50% of students in Napa County's public schools come from low-income, underserved communities. These kids are our future.

Dollars in Action

It’s simple. Tomorrow’s adults are our underserved kids today.

What We Fund

The programs we fund are the first to be cut. And they’re vital.

Make Your Donation

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!
