Our Children. Our Future.

We are increasing the number of philanthropic dollars at work across the Valley and making those dollars as effective as possible.

The Next Chapter.

Central Valley Community Foundation has been a trusted leader in philanthropy in the Valley for more than 50 years. In 2015, we changed our name and developed a new brand and logo to better reflect the region we serve.

Valley Strong.

We offer meaningful and effective ways to invest locally and our donors are making a difference — in the lives of children and families, in the quality of our air and water, in the health and well-being of our most vulnerable citizens.

Partner With Us.

We work closely with donors to fulfill their philanthropic vision and encourage families to create permanent legacies in the community.
