Napa Valley CanDo

Napa Valley CanDo

What We Do:

CanDo connects, inspires and empowers neighbors to take positive action through volunteerism. For instance, we create this Give!Guide to raise funds and awareness for local nonprofits, grow organic produce and collect non-perishable food donations year-round through our green bag project for the Food Bank. You want to help. We make it easy.

CanDo has no membership requirements, dues, or mandatory service hours. We stay connected via a weekly email that highlights done-in-a-day volunteer opportunities and community events. Projects are based on members’ interests and a commitment to addressing genuine community needs. When ideas arise, we educate ourselves and research efforts that may already be in place. Why duplicate others’ activities? If we identify an unmet community need, we move forward with purpose.

CanDo led successful efforts to limit single-use plastic bags county-wide and our Napa Valley Food Project has delivered more than 175,000 pounds of non-perishable food to the CANV Food Bank since June 2016.

Other Ways to Help:

  • VOLUNTEER: Sign-up  to receive our weekly email with volunteer opportunities both for CanDo projects and for other local nonprofits. Most are done-in-a-day.
  • ATTEND A CanDo GATHERING: Simply listen or share your thoughts/ideas. Learn how we keep moving forward. They’re listed in our weekly email.
  • INVITE US: We’ll present a bit of the CanDo story to your professional, faith-based, service, school or social group.
  • PARTNER WITH US: Business partners make a tangible difference! They supply volunteers, funds, distribute catalogs. We always return the favor with shout outs in social media and on our website.

Business Partners:

Mechanics Bank, a valued supporter of CanDo and a Give!Guide Guardian, will match the first $500 dollars in donations through the Guide.

AUL, a brand new Give!Guide Guardian, will match the first $200 dollars in donations through the Guide.


CanDo provides fertile ground and support to those with the seed of an idea. Because it's not a single-focused group where ideas need to be animal or education or healthcare driven, any seed is welcome … No one else in the Napa Valley does such a thing.
