WE WORK WITH
Pro bono offers an effective way for companies to extend their operations beyond core business interests, into other areas that engage with social and environmental concerns.
Pro bono is an area where foundations are able to play an integral role by supporting the social sector through direct funding, and the capacity building that it brings.
Through pro bono, the public sector can support various social programs and civic participation, while raising awareness about social issues and encouraging philanthropy.
