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.

Why a Foundation?
Although the state assists the college, it is not enough to adequately fund the educational excellence that Napa Valley College strives to maintain and enhance.
The Napa Valley College Foundation supports the college and its goal of excellence by building and promoting essential partnerships between the college and community. By seeking individual and corporate involvement from the community, we place ourselves in a winning situation for all. Successful employees are developed from top-notch programs and those successful people become part of a community workforce that builds thriving businesses and provides community service.
Together, Napa Valley College and the Napa Valley College Foundation support students to help them reach their educational goals and career dreams.
Napa Valley College prepares students for evolving roles in a diverse, dynamic, and interdependent world. The college is an accredited open-access, degree- and certificate-granting institution that is committed to student achievement through high-quality programs and services that are continuously evaluated and improved. The college serves students and the community in the following areas: transfer courses, career-technical education and training, basic skills, and self-supporting contract education and community education classes.
