Healthy Harvest/Cosecha Sana

The Healthy Harvest Program was created to give workers and employers in the Central Valley resources to stay safe, prevent the spread of infection, provide access to COVID-19 tests, and other resources for those who have come in contact or tested positive.

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.
