Visión Unida Community Building Institute has received a $5,000 grant from the San Luis Obispo County Community Foundation.

Visión Unida, a local nonprofit organization that promotes leadership skills and community engagement, particularly among Hispanics, says the grant will be used for its Alumni Mobilization Project.

The project will help increase civic engagement, resource development, mentoring and networking opportunities for the graduates of the organization’s program.

Visión Unida was chosen to receive this grant for its commitment to fostering leadership in service to the community.

In the past decade, the SLOCCF has given out more than $14 million in grants to assist nonprofit agencies.

VU encourages CBI Leadership graduates to forward any new contact information to Alumni Mobilization Coordinator Lorraine Dueñez at lduenez2@yahoo.com or by phone at 550-7076.
