Volunteer Your Professional Skills

 

Give what you know, grow professionally and make a difference!

About This Opportunity

The Taproot Foundation is a nonprofit organization that engages teams of Copywriters, Marketing, Branding, Web, HR, IT, Project Management, Strategic Management and Analysis Professionals to volunteer on Pro Bono service grants for local nonprofits. Rather than writing a check to a local organization, Taproot Foundation lets you “give what you know” - your time and professional skills - so you can make the strongest impact in your community while developing valuable future connections and growing professionally. Nonprofits have the greatest potential for addressing our communities’ most challenging social and environmental problems, but often lack the operational resources they need to thrive. The Taproot Foundation exists to close the gap.

Volunteers dedicate about 3-5 hours a week over the course of a 5-6 month project which is designed to produce tangible deliverables for a nonprofit organization in need. Taproot Foundation screens the nonprofits, recruits top professionals to get involved, and provides project management so the time you give is used effectively.  The flexible project model, and detailed blueprints accommodate your work schedule, enabling you to leverage your volunteer time effectively to have a real impact on the success of a local nonprofit.

Since 2001, as the country’s largest nonprofit consulting firm, the Taproot Foundation has engaged close to 3,000 business professionals in rewarding Pro Bono work, delivering more than $70 million worth of services to over 1,300 projects for nonprofits in Chicago, New York City, San Francisco Bay area, Washington, DC and Los Angeles.
