DRIVING SOCIAL CHANGE THROUGH PRO BONO SERVICE

Most organizations tackling social problems don’t have access to the marketing, design, technology, management or strategic planning resources they need to succeed. Taproot connects these organizations to skilled volunteers through pro bono service. From one-on-one consultations to team-based long-term projects, we offer in-person and virtual engagements. LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR PROGRAMS

We design and implement pro bono programs that help forward-thinking corporations leverage employee skills and talents, going beyond traditional employee engagement to the leadership development and team-building that support recruitment and retention, community commitment, and innovation.
