Why donate?

Give!Guide logoYour donation supports our work to restore habitat, monitor watershed condition, and provide environmental education to agricultural and urban land users. Cash donations support a variety of things, including scientific equipment, environmental field trip busing and supplies, office technology, or staff time. Donations of goods and services are also welcome; we would love to learn more about what you are able to offer.

But don’t you receive funding from the government to do your work?

Less than 20% of our annual operating budget comes from County property tax income. The remainder of our budget comes from competitively-sought grants, contracts, and donations. This grant funding is used for District outreach programs, providing technical information to the public, and on-the-ground conservation projects.

Make a tax-deductible donation to the Napa County RCD.

RCDs are authorized by California Public Resources Code Section 9403 to receive gifts and contributions like any other research, educational, or public charity. Contributions to RCDs are tax deductible under Internal Revenue Code Section 170(b) and (c)(1) up to 50% of the taxpayer’s adjusted gross income. RCDs may accept all forms of contributions, including but not limited to gifts, services, property, cash, stocks, and securities.
