Community Vision was selected to be a participant of the Social Sector Solutions 2013 program, which is part of the Center for Nonprofit and Public Leadership at the Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley in partnership with McKinsey & Company. The team will create a strategy to increase investors, which will help Community Vision grow its lending capacity and help it serve more nonprofits.
