...   Finance & Accountability

Charity Navigator evaluates a nonprofit organization’s financial health including measures of stability, efficiency and sustainability. We also track accountability and transparency policies to ensure the good governance and integrity of the organization.

No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit an Finance & Accountability score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for the following reason:

This organization cannot be evaluated by our Encompass Rating methodology because it files Form 990-N, as allowed by the IRS for charities with less than $50,000 annual revenue.

The lack of a rating for this reason simply means that the organization does not meet our rating criteria. It does not indicate a positive or negative assessment by Charity Navigator.

...   Impact & Results

Charity Navigator assesses how well a nonprofit delivers on its mission. To issue an Impact & Results score, we estimate the actual impact a nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determine whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact.

No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit an Impact & Results score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for one of the following reasons:

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet gotten to scoring it.

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet developed the specific algorithms to estimate the impact of the type of service it delivers and so cannot issue a score yet.

  • The nonprofit does not primarily deliver services directly to beneficiaries or it is not reasonable to expect the nonprofit to measure impact for its primary activity. The impact analysis framework that we use is not well suited to these nonprofits.

  • The nonprofit is not heavily reliant on individual donors because beneficiaries fund a majority of its costs or it does not receive any private charitable contributions.

What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

VIA seeks to be an ideal venue for voluntaryists to live their values, non-voluntaryists to learn about voluntaryism, and to show by example that force isn't necessary for people to help one another. Where people usually turn to the government for assistance with humanitarian aid, urgent needs, disaster relief, community development, and education initiatives, we want to assist them and empower them to rally their own communities for these needs.

What are your strategies for making this happen?

Through outreach, education, partnerships, and local events, VIA will grow its influence to enable us to reach more people across the globe who need our help or want the tools to help others.

What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?

Our organization has already demonstrated great capabilities in rallying our social media followers to voluntarily donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to our causes. A host of individuals have signed up on our website to donate skills to our team or to volunteer in their local communities. Our philosophy is appealing to people from all walks of life and is ideal in drawing together all sorts of individuals, excluding no one. Our team has shown growth and adaptability through all of our endeavors, and will continue to ford any future challenges.

How will your organization know if you are making progress?

We will know we are making progress when we can expand our reach globally in extending assistance and become more well known outside of the online liberty community. We will continue to work and build relationships to that end!

What have and haven't you accomplished so far?

VIA has grown tremendously since its founding. Our team never stops looking for ways to improve our approach and add value to the assistance we offer. We don't want to just give people a handout--we want to offer a hand up, so that people are empowered to help themselves and others. For every major global crisis since VIA's inception, we have been here doing our part to help. When the cause demands expertise we don't have, we partner with other non-profits to better address the need at hand. We continue to move forward with optimism that our philosophy can change individuals and the world!
