How We Impact the Community

For many Napa Valley College students, a higher education would not be possible without the financial assistance provided by the Napa Valley College Foundation. We harness the power of community giving to ensure that no one is denied an education due to lack of financial resources.

We raise funds to fill the gap when state funds are not enough to meet all our students’ needs and assist with tuition costs, school supplies and living expenses. We have awarded more than $1M in student scholarships in the past five years.

Our commitment to providing resources and opportunities for our diverse student body is unwavering. Nearly half of the NVC student body is Hispanic, and many are first generation to attend college. Our graduates earn certificates and associate degrees, transfer to 4-year colleges, and gain workforce training needed to attain a better livelihood and contribute to the growing Napa economy.


Jumping into the world of higher education at the age of 24 was intimidating. I had to work less, which meant less income. The Napa Valley College Foundation’s scholarship program provided me with a lifeline.
