Celebrating Over 28 Years of supporting underserved youth

The mission of The Livermore Valley Winegrowers Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, is to raise funds to improve the quality of life for underserved local children. The Board of the Livermore Valley Winegrowers Foundation works all year to plan the Livermore Valley Wine Auction. Since 1995, the Auction has raised over $5 million for worthwhile local organizations.

In 2012, The Livermore Valley Winegrowers Foundation and The Wente Foundation for Arts Education began working together to present the Livermore Valley Wine Auction. The mission of The Wente Foundation for Arts Education is to raise money to support arts education programs in the Livermore Valley. This partnership enables both organizations to more effectively meet the needs of children in the East Bay.
