Purpose and Activities

The foundation supports programs which enhance quality of life and sustain the environment. Fields of interest include the arts, education, economic development for charitable purposes, health and human services, nutrition and shelter, recreation and the environment. Environmental sustainability guides the foundation's action in all its undertakings. Every year the foundation also gives scholarships to each of the high schools in Napa County as well as Napa Valley College, and the Napa Valley Adult School. Most grants are for $1,000.00 and with a preference given to aging out foster children. In September, the foundation invites elementary and middle school teachers in Napa County (public, private and religious) to apply for grants up to $500.00, which can be used for a variety of purposes (i.e.: new projectors, field trips, musical instruments and planting school gardens). Grants are limited to two per school.
