NVCF builds and energizes a community of engaged citizens who strengthen the common good. We are a neutral convener—a nonpartisan “action tank” committed to regional problem-solving and collaborative impact. We act as a bridge, uniting neighbors and organizations that together can make a real difference in our community.
The North Valley Community Foundation helps new community charitable programs without nonprofit status get off the ground by providing fiscal and administrative support as well as insurance coverage.
NVCF helps identify and launch the next generation of high impact social ventures. We invest in bold ideas, providing changemakers with a comprehensive set of innovative resources to profit the world.
One of our greatest contributions to the community is our ability to bring people together to engage in public discussions and problem solving.
Community leadership requires collaboration and we partner with other foundations, corporations, nonprofits, donors and government agencies on cross-sector solutions that multiply our reach and impact.
NVCF offers the knowledge, skills and tools to help community members be as effective as possible in working with others to create the future together.
Whether you are an established or emerging leader or work in business, government, education, or public service, each of us has an important role to play in making our organizations and communities all they can be.
