Philanthropy

The Alpha Omega Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to inspire and encourage charitable giving in the next generation of Napa Valley’s leaders. The Foundation supports organizations and initiatives that energize the Valley with a sense of responsibility for building on a strong tradition of goodwill and aims to empower all people and visionary companies to realize their value to philanthropic causes. The Foundation does not use any donated funds for administrative or fundraising costs; therefore, 100% of all monies raised go directly towards our mission.

Over the past decade, Alpha Omega has supported hundreds of charitable organizations each year. The Foundation’s giving focuses on organizations that strive to make a difference in community healthcare services, early intervention programs for children and music and art education.

 


Below are the Foundation’s core California charities:
