Apply to be our next nonprofit beneficiary

Established in 1957, NVAL has raised and distributed over $900,000 to more than two dozen local nonprofit organizations. Our primary fundraiser is our annual Holiday Luncheon in early December and fashion show in early December. We have given gifts as small as $1,000 and as large as $50,000 in previous years.

Applications are currently being accepted in October for the funds we raise in 2024-25. The deadline for applications is November 30, 2024. Our philanthropy committee will review the applications and will invite selected groups to present to the entire NVAL membership in early 2025. Our members will then vote to select the beneficiary of our primary fundraiser. Our presenting applicants will be notified of the results in spring, 2025.
