Diapers, wipes and infant formula are vital to our Safety Net program, so donations of these items are always welcome. If you have other items you are interested in donating (clothing, toys, books, furniture, etc.), please call first before dropping them off! Unfortunately, as we have no storage or distribution space for these items, we cannot accept them unless we have families in immediate need of those items at the time they are available.
If you wish to donate items right away, we suggest the following organizations:
Community Projects provides grants to organizations throughout Napa, including Cope Family Center, from sales of clothing, toys, household items and more at their Thrift Shop.

Cope Family Center hosts a number of events for our clients, as well as fundraisers to support our essential services. To learn more about corporate underwriting opportunities or to find out how you can get involved in our special events, please contact Christina Mitchell at 707.252.1123 x 114.
To host a special event of your own for Cope Family Center, please read our "Hosting a Fundraiser for Cope Family Center" information sheet as well as our "Benefit Approval Policy Guidelines" prior to any event planning.
Gifts of Stock
Making a gift or fulfilling a pledge through a transfer of stock is often very advantageous from a tax point of view, especially if you own appreciated stocks. By making a gift of stock directly to a charitable organization like Cope Family Center, you can avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation of the stocks, and also realize an income tax deduction in the amount of the stock's fair market value on the date of the gift. Each individual's tax situation is different, so please contact a tax advisor about the best way to make a charitable gift. For more information about the process, contact us.

Legacy Society - Planned Giving
Leave a legacy for your community! All bequests large and small make a difference. Charitable estate planning is a "win-win" for donors and nonprofits. Donors get the satisfaction of taking care of their families first, while making lasting contributions made from estate assets and tax savings rather than current income. Nonprofits like Cope Family Center get a more predictable, longer term source of funds to support their operating budgets. If you've already included Cope in your estate plans, please let us know so we can acknowledge your generosity. For more information about estate planning options, please contact Michele Grupe at 707.252.1123 x 115.
Gifts of Time, Talent and Opportunity
The gifts of time and talent are always appreciated. Cope Family Center offers many ways for you to volunteer; see our Volunteer Opportunities page for inspiration, or contact Talent Management Coordinator Christina Mitchell at 707.252.1123 x 114. See this page for more details.
We are always happy to talk about our services and the needs of children and families in Napa County. For information about hosting a speaker for your company or service organization, contact the Development Department.
