Pro Bono Week (October 24-30) allows us to recognize the dedication of our volunteers who share their skills with nonprofits, along with the nonprofits striving to further their missions by collaborating with these volunteers.
As Common Impact reflects back on Pro Bono Week, we couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve accomplished together! In October 2021 alone, we worked with over 1,400 volunteers on 40 pro bono projects to generate nearly $500K in value for more than 50 nonprofits!
Happy International Internet Day! This week during Common Impact's Skills for Cities Fall 2021, CEO Danielle Holly moderated a Community Conversation exploring the role cross-sector partnerships can play in addressing the digital divide and advancing racial equity.
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.

Pro Bono Week is almost here! It's a special time of celebration when the impact of pro bono service is recognized globally. The week allows Taproot Foundation the opportunity to recognize the commitment of the volunteers sharing their skills, as well as the social change organizations harnessing that talent to move their missions forward.
Pro Bono Week 2020 came at a time of unprecedented difficulty and uncertainty, but in spite of that – or even for that very reason – it produced some of the strongest, most inspiring, and most necessary cross-sector collaborations we’ve ever witnessed. Corporate, public sector, and nonprofit professionals participated in everything from webinars and conferences to skills-based volunteering projects ranging a day or a week or several months, all in the name of better supporting their communities through COVID-19, racial injustice, and intractable societal challenges.
It’s Pro Bono Week! But this one looks unlike any other we’ve experienced before. Instead of large skilled volunteering events or gathering by the hundreds in event spaces for keynotes on social impact, we’re logging on to video calls from our homes or mostly empty offices. Handshakes have been replaced by waves on screens. Digital breakout rooms are the new space for collaboration.
