What can pro bono do for you?
Pro bono mobilizes professionals to donate their skills and expertise in support of social organizations with critical needs and a limited budget. Foundations play an integral role in the pro bono field in their ability to support social organizations two-fold – through direct monetary donations and capacity building support in the form of pro bono.
Social Organizations Lack Access to Resources. The right talent and skills are necessary in order for social organizations to succeed. Pro bono offers your grantees the critical resources needed to achieve their mission and improve society.
Multiply Your Investment. Pro bono builds the capacity of social organizations to ensure your donated funds are used in the most efficient means possible thereby increasing the impact of your grantees.
Go Beyond Direct Program Support. Social organizations report challenges to secure adequate funds to develop and properly sustain their operations and infrastructure. Pro bono is a highly effective tool to strengthen your grantees’ business structure.
