SCVF Gives Back to Sonoma County
Sonoma County Vintners Foundation (SCVF) is an accredited 501c(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1988. Its purpose is to consistently support local nonprofit organizations to help those in our community who are most in need. SCVF elevates lives to cultivate a vibrant and diverse Sonoma County with proceeds from year-round philanthropic giving by its community of SCVF Changemakers and its annual Sonoma County Wine Auction. SCVF’s two main initiatives, Community Grants and the Emergency Relief Fund, impact needs ranging from the immediate to the long term.
Community Foundation Sonoma County aids SCVF in the grant application process and more, providing a valuable service to the community as a liaison for nonprofits.
