Napa Valley CanDo brings together people from all over the Napa Valley who want to help our communities thrive through volunteerism and community action.  


We couldn't do it without the Gasser Foundation.
Thank you so much for your support in 2014.
  Welcome to Napa Valley CanDo
A vibrant grassroots community service organization!
Napa Valley CanDo brings together people from all over the Napa Valley who want to help our communities thrive through volunteerism and community action. We're strong, creative, and growing quickly! We have no dues and no required service hours. We don't even meet on a regular basis as a whole.
What do we do? We feature "done-in-a-day" and family-friendly volunteer opportunities. Some of these come at the request of local nonprofits seeking volunteers. Others are generated out of the creative interests of our members. We also spotlight exciting community events.

Congratulations to this year's "Fab 40."

These are forty terrific nonprofit organizations serving the people of Napa County. Look for them in CanDo's 2014 Napa Valley Give!Guide.

These small, medium and large organizations support the arts, animals, community, education, the environment, health and wellness, seniors and youth. CanDo volunteers will continue to work diligently through the fall, side by side with teams at each of these nonprofits. Together, we'll seek to inspire a community of givers to raise funds during the months of November and December, 2014.

With your generous support in 2013, CanDo's GIve!Guide raised over $106,000.

If you're familiar with these groups, you know what excellent work they do. If they're new to you, CanDo's 2014 Napa Valley Give!Guide will offer an opportunity to "meet your neighbors."

Napa Valley Give!Guide

Honored with Community Award




More than 200 guests attended ceremonies at Copia to present the 2014 Community Awards. The Napa Chamber of Commerce and Mechanics Bank honored Hilary Zunin and the CanDo Give!Guide Team with an award for "Special Project Recognition" for the innovative project that helped raise over $100,000 in November and December for 40 local nonprofit organizations.


"We set out to inspire a community of givers. With a dedicated team of CanDo volunteers, including four member of last year's Leadership Napa Valley class, and a strong collaborative effort on the part of the nonprofits, we did just that," said Zunin.


"To work with the extraordinary Give!Guide volunteers was honor enough. To be recognized for our efforts by the Chamber and Mechanics Bank, well that's the proverbial icing on the cake."


The Guide's second edition and website will be launched on November 1 this fall. We welcome more volunteers to help make it and even mor stunning success. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. us.
