Napa Valley has a CanDo attitude.

Napa Valley CanDo believes in the power of many small actions to make a really big difference. We connect, inspire and empower Napa Valley residents like you by making it easy to work together to create a strong, caring, inclusive community.

You can volunteer for one of our dynamic projects, even for just an hour or two, or help one of the many local organizations we support. Each individual action connects to others. Together, we‘re making our Valley and world better.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

— Margaret Mead
