Pro Bono Week 2021: Doubling Our Impact
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. It also marks a time when Taproot challenges ourselves to find new and innovative ways to get nonprofits the support they need, for free.
This year, we’ve set an ambitious goal for Pro Bono Week. With your help—Taproot is striving to double our community's average weekly impact by forging 100+ pro bono connections during the week of October 24-30.
How will we do it? With your support! Our innovative virtual volunteerism platform, Taproot Plus, connects social change organizations to a global network of volunteers who are ready to step up and support them. There are hundreds of opportunities to work alongside nonprofits, small businesses, and public schools currently live on the site.
