The Central Valley Community Foundation makes charitable giving easy. We drive strategic investments that benefit our community and donors.
We Make Giving Easy
Donors choose what to give, when to give, and what organizations they would like to support. We provide the administrative support for giving so our donors can focus on the joy of making the impact that is most important to them. Our online fund management tool is available 24/7 so donors can make grant recommendations, check fund balances, and review investment activity and giving history with a few clicks.

We Make Your Investment Count
The possibilities for making a difference are endless. We work with donors and their families to develop personalized philanthropic strategies, opening doors to community partners that align with their interests. Knowing that greater impact is made when we work together, we look for every opportunity to leverage our donors’ contributions with grants and donations from other local donors, state and national funders. Since 2017, the Foundation team has facilitated another $200m+ in charitable contributions and grants for the Central Valley, in addition to the $65m we have directly granted.
We Maximize Your Impact
We offer tax-advantages using seven different fund types to help donors accomplish their goals. As a public charity, donations received by the Foundation qualify for the maximum charitable deduction in a given year. While for-profit financial service firms may be able to manage donor funds, here at the Foundation, we are experts in the needs of our region and regularly source high impact giving opportunities that align with our donors’ interests. We do whatever it takes to ensure our donors have everything they need to foster big, measurable change in the Central Valley.
