We are going back to our roots this week and talking about our raison d’être: skills-based volunteering. Common Impact has been in this line of work for fifteen years and in that time we’ve seen a true evolution in corporations’ and nonprofits’ understanding of pro bono work. We’re thrilled to see both sides coming around to the bottom line benefits of skills-based volunteer engagements and we’re excited by the innovative new variations on the skills-based model that are cropping up each day.

Among those things to celebrate is the exciting work being done across America to align the complementary interests of business and society to strengthen the communities in which we live and work.
