Charles Schwab Pro Bono Challenge Spotlights

Charles Schwab Pro Bono Challenge Spotlights

Common Impact interviewed three nonprofit organizations that participated in Charles Schwab's 2016 Pro Bono Challenge to understand the underlying organizational challenge, how the team addressed the challenge and what the ultimate impact was. We will be sharing their stories over the course of Pro Bono Week 2017 that all demonstrate the unique and sustainable impact that skills-based volunteering can have on the nonprofit community. We look forward to having these nonprofits join us again for the 2017 Pro Bono Challenge!
