We give legs to innovative social enterprises that benefit the community. Community-benefit projects sometimes need a place to incubate their ideas without having to become independent nonprofit organizations. We support, champion, and provide services to unincorporated nonprofit projects that benefit the community.
North Valley Community Foundation (NVCF) helps new community charitable programs without nonprofit status get off the ground by providing fiscal and administrative support as well as insurance coverage.
NVCF helps to identify and launch the next generation of high impact social ventures. We invest in genuine and bold ideas, providing them with a comprehensive set of innovative resources to profit the world.
One of our greatest contributions to the community is our ability to bring people together to engage in public discussions and problem solving.
NVCF has identified a few community priorities where we have helped give leadership to community initiatives to address baseline community needs.
Community leadership requires collaboration and we partner with other foundations, corporations, nonprofits, donors and government agencies on cross-sector solutions that multiply our reach and impact.
Each of us has an important role to play in making our organizations and communities all they can be. NVCF offers the knowledge, skills and tools to help community members be as effective as possible in working with others to create the future together.
Whether you are an established or emerging leader or work in business, government, education, or public service, NVCF is dedicated to invigorating and strengthening your intention and ability to make a positive difference in your world.
