Choices We Make

Napa Valley CanDo seeks to inspire and facilitate action by alerting interested Valley residents about opportunities for service. If you participate as a volunteer in an activity that you learned about through Napa Valley CanDo, whether initiated by CanDo or another organization, please take personal responsibility for your involvement. Use common sense. Only you can determine whether the activity is a good fit, that is to say compatible with your interests and abilities.

 Napa Valley CanDo
A vibrant grassroots community service organization!

Napa Valley CanDo connects, inspires and empowers neighbors to take positive action in order to help our community thrive. We're strong, creative, all-volunteer and growing quickly. Through our weekly email newsletter, The CanDo Connection, we feature "done-in-a-day" and family-friendly volunteer opportunities. So many of you want to help; we figure it's our job to make it easy.

Some of these come at the request of local nonprofits seeking volunteers. Others are based on CanDo's own projects which grow out of the interests of our members as we identify unmet community needs. We also spotlight exciting community events. We have no dues and no required service hours.

The CanDo Spirit Award, part of Napa Valley CanDo's Give!Guide campaign, celebrates exceptional work performed by one young, full-time employee working in the Napa County nonprofit sector. Applications for this year's CanDo Spirit Award will be accepted through July 26. 

Every nonprofit agency in Napa County, whether they are involved in CanDo's 2019 Give!Guide or not, is eligible to nominate one outstanding employee. Nominees must be age 35 or younger as of November 1, 2019. Full-time is defined as working at least 25 hours per week for one year.

Since its inception in 2013, the CanDo Spirit Award has been generously sponsored by the Napa Valley Vintners. The winner receives a plaque and a check for $1000.00. They will be honored at CanDo's Give!Guide's Kick-off Celebration November 7 at the Hampton Inn - Napa. The event is free and open to the public.

The on-line application has two parts:  one to be completed by the nominating nonprofit employer and one for the nominee. Details and the two-part Spirit Award application may be found on the CanDo Give!Guide website.
