Pro Bono Week

Pro Bono Week 2014

Pro Bono Week is a global celebration of the pro bono ethic across all professions that use their talents to make a difference. Inspired by the American Bar Assocation's National Celebration of Pro Bono, Taproot works with partners around the globe to focus attention on the pro bono movement each year during the third week of October.


Highlights from Pro Bono Week 2013:

Pro Bono Hall of Fame

Taproot Foundation has inducted the inaugural cohort into the Pro Bono Hall of Fame as part of its Pro Bono Week 2013 campaign. These four individuals have set the bar for what it means to adopt a pro bono ethic in their respective fields. We are proud to honor these trail blazers who are leading the charge in the global pro bono movement.
