Opportunity Fund
August 19, 2008

I personally do not know where to begin about LCD, now called Opportunity Fund. Where do you start to explain how a company can allow you to put your dreams into action, when all you need is a financial boost? They have been more than helpful, proactive, and an honest company. LCD became our family and I cannot thank the staff enough for taking an interest in our events and ACTUALLY coming out to support. Thank you Opportunity Fund! It's about more than money!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

how we are able to conduct business and build relationships with other companies. LCD truly paved the way for us to network and align ourselves with other key businesses and community figures.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

host more events in San Francisco and research to find more feasible ways for artists to TRULY feel safe taking loans to advance their careers.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working WITH LCD on our events and allowing them to participate and provide financial insight to Independent artists in the Bay Area.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

genuinely interested in helping the community - no matter what color, orientation, gender OR neighborhood.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

TRULY provide not only loans, but grants to those who really need the funds AND afford a better outreach plan of action.

Ways to make it better...

my schedule worked better with the workshops they have planned in the city.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

1. outreach to the greater Bay Area (only thing I can think of b/c once you know about them and meet the staff, you are hooked!)

One thing I'd also say is that...

this organization is one of the best I've fun across and I can only hope my company's passion for what we do is felt as much as theirs.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
