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

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 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 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.

CanDo is proud to welcome these remarkable, local nonprofits to the

2016 Napa Valley Give!Guide.


With 60 applicants, we knew that the decision-making process would be

challenging.  A committee of CanDo volunteers and community members

worked hard to balance size, geographic location, categories and more.


Even though we've enlarged the number of Napa County nonprofits

from 39 in 2015 to 43, 18 fine organizations - including both new applicants

and veterans who've appeared in the past - did not make this year's Guide.


Together, let's make this year's Give!Guide the strongest one yet!
