Pro Bono

Pro bono—short for pro bono publico, “for the public good”—refers to professional services delivered without expectation of a fee to organizations serving the social good. It is both a form of support for community organizations as well as an increasingly core part of the ethic of business professionals from design to HR to tech who believe that high-quality professional services are too important to only be available to those who can afford them.

Taproot Foundation

Taproot Foundation, a national nonprofit, connects nonprofits and social change organizations with skilled volunteers through pro bono service. Taproot is creating a world where organizations dedicated to social change have full access—pro bono—to the marketing, strategy, HR, and IT resources they need to be most effective. We power collaboration that connects communities and drives social change. Since 2001, Taproot’s skilled volunteers have served 3,300 social change organizations representing 1.5 million hours of work and over $141 million in value.

Taproot is located in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.

BMW Foundation

The BMW Foundation brings together leaders from across communities, cultures, and countries to drive Social Innovation, promote Global Dialogue, and encourage Responsible Leadership. We are convinced that our approach breaks down barriers between politics, business, and civil society and allows society to benefit from the creativity and diversity that result from cross-sector collaboration.
