Every year, Pro Bono Week serves as an amazing opportunity for those of us in this field to come together with a strong, collective voice and shine a light on the impact and importance of pro bono service. And never has the need for pro bono been more apparent. Nonprofits and other social good organizations are confronted daily with the challenge of meeting the increasing demand of critical social issues amidst declining charitable giving.
This Pro Bono Week, Taproot Foundation is spotlighting nonprofits, business professionals, and companies who are playing key roles in bringing the impact of pro bono to life in communities around the globe.

NEW YORK, October 14, 2019 / 3BL Media / – The pro bono movement is an ecosystem, a true community supporting a community. And each role in this ecosystem is vital in bringing the impact to life—from the nonprofit professionals on the frontlines fighting for those they serve to the business professionals and companies who are investing in their communities by working to strengthen the organizations that serve them.

How companies can create shared value between CSR and HR
Taproot has long made the case that a strong corporate pro bono program is a triple win—nonprofits receive the support they need, companies build deeper relationships with their communities, and employees have the opportunity to apply their skills in new and meaningful ways. While a good deal of evidence supports pro bono as a powerful social impact strategy, practitioners often struggle to articulate the business case for pro bono.
