TVNPA 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.
We are grateful to all our sponsors for your support!
The Power of Giving Celebration could not have happened without you!
