Three Valleys Community Foundation (3VCF) works with a variety of donors – individuals, families, businesses and organizations – to enable funding for nonprofit organizations that are working on the front lines to address important issues and opportunities in our community. We connect donors and nonprofits to better serve those in need in our Tri-Valley region. 

The Power of Three

Three ways we support the nonprofit community:

We connect nonprofits with donors and community leaders to enable informed giving and sustained impact. We are proud to collaborate with organizations like Tri-Valley Non Profit Alliance (TVNPA) and others to facilitate meetings and valuable connections. We also partner with Las Positas College and TVNPA on The Philanthropy Institute – providing ongoing professional development opportunities to nonprofit leaders.

Our goal is to support nonprofits as they wish – and not get in the way of their good work! On grants, we will strive to make the application and review process as streamlined and efficient as possible. Our Foundation is also able to help with impact reporting to ensure donors are inspired to sustain support to address the key issues in our region. 

We are committed to the Council on Foundations’ national standards for transparency and efficiency in all our grantmaking and use a nationally recognized grantmaking platform, Foundant, to facilitate applications, payments and impact reporting.
