We Need Your Support!
A gift to NEWS is a significant way to help provide safety to adults and children in our community who are escaping domestic violence and/or sexual assault. Your tax deductible donation goes to support services such as emergency shelter, support groups for women and children, court advocacy, and transitional housing. Please join with us to support these life-saving programs.

Donate by Mail – Send a check in the mail to: 1141 Pear Tree Lane, Suite 220, Napa, CA 94558
Organize a Workplace Giving Program – Many employers have giving programs which allow you to select the charity of your choice and donations are made through automatic payroll deductions.
Planned Giving – Planned gifts ensure that our agency will be around for years to come to address the unique needs of our clients. Consider making a bequest to NEWS in your will or living trust. Bequests can be made in cash, securities, real property or personal property. You can also contribute a percentage of your estate. Your estate will receive a charitable tax deduction for the full value of the donation, so your estate will not pay estate tax on these assets. For more information we recommend you consult an estate planning counsel.
Become a NEWS Community Champion – NEWS seeks local businesses to make an annual investment and become NEWS Community Champions. Annual donors make a statement and take a stand to support domestic violence and sexual abuse survivors in the Napa community. If your company is interested becoming a NEWS Community Champion, learn more on our Sponsorship page and get in touch with the NEWS Development Director, Andi Grote, at AndiG@napanews.org
Non-Cash (In-Kind) Donations – NEWS is appreciative of every generous individual and/or organization that inquires about donating to our clients. While we understand the power of utilizing every available resource and we care deeply about making sure those resources end up in the hands of our clients, we also must balance the capacity of our staff and infrastructure to manage, store, and distribute those items as well as current health/safety concerns. As such, NEWS has implemented a policy and these guidelines concerning non-cash donations.
NEWS has a trusted track record for responsible use of funds: 85% of the funds NEWS receives go directly to services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Although, we think that without a safe building for victims to come to, and people who work at overseeing the best use of funds, we wouldn't be able to help like we do... so we believe that 100% of funds are used to help victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse!
Giving frees us from the familiar territory of our own needs by opening our mind to the unexplained worlds occupied by the needs of others. -- Barbara Bush
