HERE COMES THE 2015 Napa Valley Give!Guide

Get ready. Get set. Give!

 

In 2013, CanDo's Give!Guide helped raise $106,000 for 40 nonprofits serving Napa County residents. In 2014, donations grew to an astonishing $235,000. 


Give!Guide Team volunteers gather twice each month for a "marty." That's something between a meeting and a party. Our goals? To ever more creatively orchestrate a year-end campaign to raise funds and awaremess for terrific, local nonprofits while encouraging collaboration and helping cultivate a culture of giving.  FFI:   This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

  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.

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.
