WHO DO WE SUPPORT?
Napa Valley charities that have a 501(c)3 status and serve our local community. We are open to all charities but some might include:
Teens Connect supports, engages, and empowers teens through programs centered around art and wellness, peer support and volunteer projects. We provide positive opportunities for youth to discover their self-identity, express their voice and create lasting social impact in their communities.
Be Kind Napa is a kid-driven and kid-led event that brings people together to spread and celebrate kindness. Be Kind Napa is not a protest or political or religious in nature. There will be no megaphones, just people walking, wearing their buttons and holding signs with messages of kindness.
The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Napa Valley is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us the most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. We serve 1,330 Napa and American Canyon youth every day after school at our Napa Clubhouse, American Canyon Clubhouse, Club 1515 Teen Center, and eight additional school-based locations.
Leadership Napa Valley (LNV) is a nationally recognized, award-winning program that provides leadership development for community-minded individuals who want to make the Napa Valley a better place to live, work, and do business.
Born out of a Leadership Napa Valley group project, ONE HUNDRED KIDS NAPA VALLEY joins an international network of youth organizations that are changing the world!
By engaging in the spirit of giving at a young age - they learn, by practice, the importance that involvement has on building stronger communities. That you don't have to be wealthy to give because “showing up” is what’s important! Making new friends and strengthening the bonds of existing friendships all while learning a democratic approach to decision making. They learn that giving is FUN!!
