TVNPA Power of Giving Celebration

TVNPA's 2022 Power of GIving Celebration

Save the date on Wednesday, November 16, 2022, to celebrate the Power of Giving as we salute amazing impact-makers in the Tri-Valley region at the end of the year! Along with recognizing our member organizations, TVNPA will be celebrating the dozens of regional nonprofit organizations that have been awarded with Tri-Valley Nonprofit Fund grants ranging from $1,000-$5,000 throughout each quarter of 2022.

Stay tuned! Registration information will be coming soon. Check back here for updates!

Building on the earlier successes of the Tri-Valley Nonprofit Fund that launched during the first year of the Pandemic and raised over $183,000 to support critical direct services organizations during the initial year of the crisis, TVNPA forged ahead to raise $100,000 in 2022 to be awarded to nonprofit organization grant applicants each quarter.

Seeded once again by very generous matching grants by our partners at the Community Health and Education Foundation (CHEF) and community donors Marti and John Sutton, TVNPA has successfully distributed $25,000 in grant awards each quarter so far; totaling $50,000 that has been distributed by June of this year in undesignated funding  to support nonprofits in their programs and services as they strive to achieve their missions.

For more information about the Tri-Valley Nonprofit Fund, and to make a donation and positive impact on a broad range of critically important nonprofit organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area, please explore: The Tri-Valley Nonprofit Fund initiative at TVNPA.

Highlights from our 2021 Power of Giving Celebration

Tri-Valley Nonprofit Alliance hosted our inaugural recognition event, “The Power of Giving Celebration” at the Bankhead Theater December 7, 2021. We honored the collective efforts of your teams, along with the benefactors and beneficiaries of the Tri-Valley Nonprofit Fund. The fund enabled continued service delivery by six safety-net service organizations during this challenging time.

Emceed by Dr. Dyrell Foster, President of Las Positas College, the Power of Giving event also offered entertainment by David Victor, formerly of the band Boston and Executive Director of the nonprofit Harmony & Healing, as well as student concert pianist, Michael Hong, who held an online “lockdown concert” to raise money for the Fund.

Representatives from the six safety-net service organizations shared powerful stories about the impact the funds received from the Tri-Valley Nonprofit Fund made.

Close to 250 attendees and volunteers enjoyed the evening, highlighted by moving stories of how nonprofits navigated the COVID-19 lockdown, and how contributions from community members of all ages and walks of life joined business, organizations, and corporations of all sizes in supporting their efforts.

The evening ended with an announcement
about the expansion of the Tri-Valley Nonprofit Fund
into an annual grant program.

“Now is the ideal time to expand the Tri-Valley Nonprofit Fund. “For the past eight years, TVNPA has had our fingers on the pulse of the nonprofit community in the Tri-Valley and beyond,” she said, adding, “Through our ongoing relationships with over 400 regional nonprofits and those who access our programs from 25 states, we understand the operational challenges nonprofits face in good times– whether they are established or startups. A grant program through the Tri-Valley Nonprofit Fund is a natural extension of our mission.”

“The success of the first campaign of the Tri-Valley Nonprofit Fund demonstrated the importance of providing unrestricted funds to nonprofits in support of program and service delivery,”. In fact, the immediate impact we saw inspired our grant program’s tag line:
‘Immediate Impact – Measurable Results.’” 

Kathy Young, TVNPA President & CEO

We are grateful to all our sponsors for your support!
