Located in the heart of the nation’s capital, Taproot’s Washington DC office is  home to a vibrant nonprofit sector. Since opening its offices in 2008, Taproot has awarded over 170 Service Grants and has channeled more than $9 million in resources to local nonprofit organizations.

These pro bono consultants use their professional expertise to help a nonprofit organization better function. Anyone with 3-5 years of professional experience in design, technology, marketing, human resources or strategy is encouraged to apply.
