About NVC Foundation
The Foundation office offers comprehensive fund-raising for scholarships, programs, instructional equipment, employee development and campus improvement. We work collaboratively with the 24-member volunteer Board of Directors, campus leadership and campus departments to advance the quality of the college’s academic endeavors. The Foundation has five active committees which meet monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly to accomplish the annual and long-term goals.
The Napa Valley College Foundation is a California nonprofit, public benefit Corporation and is tax-exempt as provided by IRS Sec. 501 (c.) 3. Organized in 1968, the NVC Foundation provides scholarships, supports development of improved methods of instruction, updates classroom and lab equipment, provides needed materials for the college, and supports student success programs.
The office accepts donations and distributes payments from over 200 different funds. The majority of those funds are endowed scholarships, but the Foundation office also has funds or creates funds as needed for grants, instructional equipment and program support.
The Foundation office provides assistance to other departments on campus with their fund-raising efforts, from determining businesses to target, logistically accepting gifts, to the stewardship of the donors.
