Ways to Donate


Donate through the Napa Give!Guide and funds go directly to the Outdoor Connection, our trailside learning center. The Outdoor Connection, a program of the American Canyon Community & Parks Foundation, is Napa County’s first mobile classroom dedicated to nature and environmental education. Launched in spring 2023, The Outdoor Connection serves youth and families at the Napa River Wetlands, schools, community events and summer camps. Donations help empower youth through nature and the expansion of environmental education in Napa Valley.

Ecology Center Donation

With environmental concerns at an all-time high, ACCPF is leading the way for community conservation efforts. The newly envisioned Wetlands “Eco Center” is poised as a hub for environmental education based on close proximity to the Wetlands opportunity for hands-on learning. Your donation to the Wetlands Ecology Center will:

  • Provide a home for environmental education, nature art, and science programs for students and community members in Napa County and beyond​​
  • Strengthen American Canyon as a leader in environmental leadership, research, and programming
  • Harness the power of our diverse community to further the conservation movement.
  • “Root” our families in nature and develop the next generation of nature lovers who will help solve our most complex environmental issues.

Stock Donation

Gifts of appreciated securities such as stocks and bonds offer substantial tax advantages, such as forgiveness of the tax on capital gains and a charitable income tax deduction for their fair market value. In order to maximize your capital gains savings, we encourage you to transfer securities directly to ACCPF rather than selling them and then making a cash donation.

Car Donation

ACCPF has partnered CARS to assist with car, boat, truck, or motorcycle, or RV donations! Call CARS at 1-855-500-RIDE to schedule a free pick up from anywhere in the US, then advise them that the American Canyon Community and Parks Foundation is the designated charity. You can learn more or make your donation online.

​Vehicle donation pick-up is always free to you and most vehicles can be picked up within 24-72 hours. You’ll receive an initial car donation receipt up pick-up and then the CARS team will work to turn your car into cash to support our work. Once your vehicle is sold, they will provide your tax receipt.

Donor Advised Funds

Donor advised funds allow you to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax section and then recommend grants from the fund over time, you can contribute to the fund as frequently as you like, and then recommend grants to your favorite charity such as ACCPF at a time that makes sense for you. Consult with your financial advisor about the best choice for your unique circumstance.

Matching Gifts

Double or triple the impact of your gift to ACCPF! Many companies have a matching program that matches part or all their employees’ gifts to charities. Contact your Human Resource Department to see if your company offers a matching gift program.

IRA Donation

A special opportunity for those 70½ years old and older.

You can give any amount (up to a maximum of $100,000) per year from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as ACCPF without having to pay income taxes on the money. Gifts of any value $100,000 or less are eligible for this benefit and you can feel good knowing that you are making a difference at ACCPF. This popular gift option is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover, but you may also see it referred to as a qualified charitable distribution, or QCD for short. Contact your IRA administrator for more information or contact Janelle Sellick at 707-363-1915 or janelle@acparks.org for more information.


Support the long term sustainability of the Foundation with a gift to the ACCPF Endowment. An Endowment is a source of income that is permanently set aside for the long-term benefit of ACCPF. Gifts and bequests given to the Endowment Fund remain intact as principal to be invested. As the fund grows, earnings from the principal become an ongoing source of funding that can ensure the growth and advancement of programs and initiatives of the Foundation for future generations. Individuals or organizations may wish to contribute to existing endowment funds by giving a considerable donation in honor or memory of someone special over an extended period of time.
