Nonprofit Borrower Success Story: Visión y Compromiso - Strategic Growth Loan

Thanks to loans and donations from the LENDonate network of investors, the organization was able to pursue new projects to improve their financial outlook. They have now paid back the loan and are ready to enhance their services again!

LENDonate LOAN DETAILS

The team at Visión y Compromiso (Vision and Commitment) had a strong plan for their future — but no easy way to bring it to life. Traditional financing models were not accessible to them, and they needed help to fully pursue the earned-income opportunities that would transform the financial and programmatic future of the organization.


Established in 2000, Visión y Compromiso (VyC) is the leading organization in California providing training, leadership and ongoing advocacy and support to community health workers.


A strategic decision in 2018 was made to expand the client base to include private organizations, such as hospitals, to diversify its funding source from 100% public funding. While they have had exciting initial success in signing new contracts, the cost of growth outpaced receivables.

With the $100,000 bridge loan from LENDonate, VyC was able to maintain their staffing levels, get caught up on pending receivables, and have some breathing room to apply for additional grants and contracts. After stabilizing their financial operations, VyC is pursuing strategic growth opportunities, including expanding their client base to increase the number of community health workers who are prepared to advocate for the good of their communities in culturally relevant ways.
