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.
Through pro bono, local and national government can support employment and civic participation in the non-profit field, educate their population to social issues and reinforce solidarity and philanthropy.
Tackle critical and complex social issues. The right talent and skills are necessary in order for social organizations to succeed as they face a growing demand and more complex problems. Pro bono offers mission-based organizations the critical resources needed to achieve their mission and improve society.
Make a efficient use of resources. Pro bono builds the capacity of social organizations to ensure that grants and other non-financial supports are used in the most efficient means possible thereby increasing the impact of your grantees.
Support your community with a lasting impact. Pro bono is a highly effective tool to solve strategy and management challenges for a mission-based organization. Connecting social organizations to skilled volunteers will help them to develop and properly sustain their operations and infrastructure.
