Product Overview

A student-founded, student-led nonprofit organization dedicated to helping Hondurans escape from the cycle of poverty accomplished this by engaging college students in its projects from beginning to end. It operated with a yearly budget, augmented by student fundraisers and a grant from a private foundation. By the summer of 2008, it had three full-time employees living in Honduras and an ambitious business plan to expand its college chapters, increase its student-volunteer visits and summer service-learning internships, continue its three existing projects, and begin three new ones. Progress was slowed by limited resources?people and money. Having given money to the organization already to partially fund its operating costs for 2008-09, the foundation thought it had served its purpose and its funding was over. Faced with this financial reality, team leaders questioned the organization's future and how to proceed.
