Special Gifts Campaign

The Foundation launched a Special Gifts Campaign in the fall of 2006 to support the campus bond-funded projects.  Naming opportunities are available for donors at all levels. 

Chris McCarthy & Dan TerAvestMeasure N Bond
Napa County voters approved the Measure N Bond of $133.8 million in 2002. The bond provided for major renovations, as well as new construction. It was the first bond approved since the original campus construction.

Former College President Dr. Chris McCarthy & Director of Campus Planning Dan TerAvest show off the 5,000 panel solar field.

Why the bond isn’t paying for all the projectMaterials and construction costs increased 30% over the planned inflation. Additional funding is needed to supplement and enhance the bond-funded projects.

This is an excellent way to have an organization or individual recognized for their commitment to education, the arts, health care or the environment.
