Pro Bono Week is an annual global celebration of the impact of pro bono and the people who make it all possible. This year, Taproot Foundation is honoring the week through service. From October 24-30 our team is creating 100+ connections between business professionals and great causes who are in need of support.
We can’t celebrate Pro Bono Week without you! Here are 3 ways to take action with us:
If you work at a charity or NGO, you probably find yourself putting off projects and plans due to shortages in budget or expertise. With the support of volunteers donating their professional marketing, technology, strategy, HR, and finance skills for free, you can make those plans happen.
Planning and executing a successful #GivingTuesday campaign can be daunting. You need inviting graphics, compelling messaging, an engaging email strategy, and stand-out social media. Don’t panic: all this is achievable even without a budget or in-house expertise.

After 30 years of managing people in the corporate world, I've learned that the best employees are happy employees. Not just happy because their job is challenging and the salary is great, but because the company that they work for recognizes the importance of giving back to one's community. This concept is not new, even Ben Franklin referred to it long ago, and there are many studies available on the topic.
