ONE EVENT, TWO CAUSES

Proceeds from Harvest STOMP supports the Napa Valley Grapegrowers mission to preserve and promote Napa Valley's world-class vineyards.  During the live auction, Lot #11 is our fund-a-need that supports the Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation and its mission to provide education and professional development opportunities to Napa Valley vineyard workers and their families.


NAPA VALLEY GRAPEGROWERS

WHO WE ARE

Representing the vineyards of Napa County, the Napa Valley Grapegrowers is a community of wine industry leaders committed to working together to advance the heritage and reputation of the Napa Valley appellation.

WHAT YOUR SUPPORT MEANS

Almost 50 years ago, Napa Valley growers enacted the nation’s first Agricultural Preserve, ensuring that Napa’s farmland would never be subdivided or developed, and agriculture would officially be the highest and best use of the land.  The Ag Preserve forms the foundation of this community and its principles are the guiding force behind our focus on quality and sustainability. In California, 54,000 acres of prime agricultural land are lost each year and 2 acres per minute are lost throughout the United States to development and urbanization.  This makes our work to protect Napa’s 45,000 acres of planted vineyards critically important for the long-term sustainability of our community.  Contributions made at STOMP allows us to continue this important work.


NAPA VALLEY FARMWORKER FOUNDATION

OUR MISSION

To support and promote Napa Valley’s vineyard workers through education and professional development.

WHAT YOUR SUPPORT MEANS

Opportunity and education are the keys to success.  We can all remember that person or opportunity that “gave us a shot”.  The Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation was created to provide just that for all farmworkers in the Napa Valley.  Through your support, we are able to develop high-value education and professional opportunities that contribute to the success of not just individuals, but to entire communities.  Your donation directly provides opportunities for growth and development to thousands of farmworkers and their families each year that give them the tools they need to become successful leaders, vineyard workers, and a bigger part of the Napa Valley community-at-large.  Your support will change a family’s life.
