LIN Center for Community Development

LIN's mission is to provide support services to local NPOs, skilled volunteers and donors who are committed to building strong communities. The LIN Center for Community Development serves grassroots not-for-profit organizations (NPOs) and individual and corporate philanthropists located in and around Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. By helping local people to meet local needs, LIN aims to promote a healthy environment for philanthropy in Vietnam and strengthen the communities in which we live and work.
Narrow the Gap - Help Nonprofits in Vietnam
 
Every year, local not-for-profit organizations (NPOs) in Vietnam continue to fight an uphill battle to build a better future for their communities and bring equal opportunity to disadvantaged groups, but who is fighting to make sure the NPOs have the knowledge and resources they need to stay afloat? Since 2009, LIN's Narrow the Gap Community Fund has brought together resources to support projects that address the most pressing issues. Will you join us in creating a brighter future for Vietnam? project reportread updates from the field
Build Home for Vietnam NPOs
 
Vietnam not-for-profit organizations (NPOs) are understaffed, underfunded and relatively new, which limits their ability to help disadvantaged groups. The Build a Home for NPOs project will fund LIN's core services aimed at educating & empowering local NPOs. This includes creating a shared community resource center for NPOs to operate from, something many desperately require for survival. project reportread updates from the field
Skilled Volunteers Help Empower Vietnam Nonprofits
 
NPOs typically have one staff doing the work of many. In this scenario, pro bono volunteers are a great resource. LIN is working to recruit, orient, support and sustain NPO-Volunteer relationships. project reportread updates from the field
Brown Bag Lunch Day for Kids in Vietnam
 
How much does it cost to go out for lunch? About $15? Now, if I told you that at least 5 kids in Vietnam could eat a nutritious lunch for $15, what would you say? This summer, LIN is focusing on the needs of children, and we need your help. Would you consider packing a lunch on June 12th and donating your lunch money to help vulnerable children in Ho Chi Minh City? On this day, GlobalGiving will match 30% of your donation - enough to buy each kid a milk box to accompany their lunch. project reportread updates from the field
