STRENGTHEN YOUR NONPROFIT BOARD WITH PRO BONO

The annual financial gifts your board members make can be just a fraction of their potential contributions. The strongest nonprofits in the country are governed by board members who apply their core professional skills to support their organization's business infrastructure--covering as much as 10-20% of budget with pro bono.
