Yountville School Foundation
The Yountville School Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to raising funds to ensure that Yountville’s neighborhood school remains a vital part of our community. Due to the state budget crisis and continued cuts in funding for education, the school district has closed some small schools in Napa Valley to save money. Concerned about the future of Yountville Elementary, a group of citizens approached the school board and reached an agreement that will make the school financially viable while in return receiving a guarantee that the school will stay open for years to come.
Active 20-30 Club of Napa
Provides young adults with an opportunity for personal growth, friendships and leadership development while improving the quality of life for the special needs children in their community.
The Active 20-30 Club of Napa #57 is unique from other service organizations in that we place a strong emphasis on an ACTIVE approach to community service—participating in a hands-on fashion.
Every year we offer our annual events—an “egg” hunt, fishing derby, Kids’ Day, parade, and Project Santa—all free to the community. Through our Birthday Buddies program, we provide birthday party supplies to families living at a local shelter to celebrate a child’s birthday. We also participate in special projects as they arise—playground construction and clean-up days, and Junior Achievement.
Pink Heals Napa Valley
A non-profit group dedicated to supporting women and raising awareness in Napa Valley. We support all types of cancer relief efforts and focus on women as a whole in whatever type of cancer they battle. As men it is in our nature to care for the women in our lives, this is just another way to show love and support. Our women are the most important people in our lives, whether they are our mothers, wives, daughters or sisters. The money raised in our community stays in our community and can continually be generated based on our shirt sales. We selflessly put our women first in the battle against cancer, at the very least we wear her color to let her know we CARE! We bring Love & Hope to our community and around the country in the form of Pink Fire Trucks. We sell t-shirts to help fund our mission and always accept donations.
