About SVF

Our mission is to strengthen our community by increasing the level of philanthropy and legacy giving.

More specifically, SVF’s goal is:

  • To increase the number of families and individuals who make a legacy pledge to philanthropic causes; and,
  • To sustain and encourage an increased quality of life in Sonoma Valley.

The Sonoma Valley Fund (SVF) works to strengthen its community through philanthropy and legacy giving. It is the bridge between donors and the nonprofit organizations they support, ensuring the prudent investment of funds and the achievement of legacy gift objectives. The SVF Grants Committee manages local grant programs that directly benefit Sonoma Valley residents. SVF has a wide variety of funds established by donors and nonprofit organizations to serve their philanthropic goals.

Donors giving through the Sonoma Valley Fund can make a significant impact in the Sonoma Valley by choosing from a variety of creative giving vehicles tailored to meet individualized interests and objectives. Nonprofit organizations benefit from SVF’s ability to support new legacy gifts to support their programs and projects, providing flexibility and responsiveness to changing local needs.
