Community

Clos Du Val is proud of its philanthropic efforts throughout Napa Valley and the greater community. 

Adopt-A-Charity

As part of our efforts, we run a program called “Adopt-A-Charity”, which allows employees to nominate a local non-profit to sponsor for a charity drive.  Our Philanthropy Committee reviews all suggestions and ultimately selects six charities for any given year.  For a two-month period each, Clos Du Val employees will collect and donate essential items on the selected charity’s behalf. 

Our recent charities of choice include Napa Valley Food Bank, North Bay Teacher Resource Center, River Ranch Farmworkers’ Center and Napa Humane.

1-to-1

Along with in-kind donations from employees, Clos Du Val equally strives to create an environment that encourages employee involvement and volunteerism, and building a workforce of women and men who understand the value of giving back.   In support of that, we started our “1-to-1” Program, which allows Clos Du Val employees to donate anywhere from 1 day up to 1% of their annual hours worked to a qualified charity of their choice (roughly 8 to 20 hours per employee per year). 

Clos Du Val employees are paid for their volunteer time, alleviating any financial impact on our employees while allowing a non-profit of the employee’s choice to reap the benefit of a day (or more) of active volunteer work.

Donation Policy

We are proud to support a variety of non-profits, particularly those causes which are important to Clos Du Val employees, members of our “Club Du Val” wine clubs, and our trade partners.

We do receive a high number of requests for donations every year and as much as we would like to support every deserving charitable request, we must limit ourselves to a smaller number of charities that we can successfully and meaningfully support. If you would like your organization to be considered, please review our donation policy below.

  • The request for a donation item must be submitted via our (online form) and must be received by Clos Du Val at least six (6) weeks prior to your event (e.g. the day your organization needs the donation). This allows us time to carefully review your request and determine if we are able to donate. Incomplete forms, or any donations submitted not using this form (e.g. phone or in-person solicitations), will not be reviewed.
  • Your organization must hold a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. You must enter the organization’s tax ID number on the online form.
  • All donation requests must be accompanied by a formal letter of request and donation form.
  • Donations for live and silent auctions items may include wine or gift certificates for tours and tastings.
  • Clos Du Val does not provide cash donations.
  • If a donation request is accepted, Clos Du Val will provide a description of the donated item(s) and indicate the market value of the item(s).
  • We give priority to organizations located in Napa Valley or the greater San Francisco Bay Area.
  • Organizations are limited to one donation per calendar year.
  • If you reside in the Bay Area, donated items should be picked up by your organization at the winery, by arrangement, prior to the event.
