Foundation

Board of Directors

The Napa Valley College Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. These community members who invest in the college, generate donations and govern the Foundation bring with them a diverse background. This varied combination of members is one of the foremost strengths of the Foundation. Board members serve a three-year term and meet quarterly throughout the year, as well as serve on committees.
