Donor advised funds and donor advised foundations at Napa Valley Community Foundation allow donors to recommend grants to their preferred charitable causes, with approval by Community Foundation staff and Board of Directors. Most donor advisors already know which projects they want to support, but some do not. All are curious about the impact the nonprofit sector is having in Napa County.
Connecting with donor advisors
Grants from donor advised funds and foundations are based on recommendations from individual and family donor(s). Formal grant proposals/applications are not accepted.
The role of our staff is to consult with individual and family donors, and to make them aware of projects that my be of interest, where appropriate.
If your organization is not already in conversation with us about a donor-recommended grant, please review the eligibility guidelines and the process for contacting us. We'll do our best to involve fund holders where appropriate.
