Taproot Foundation's Campaign Initiatives

For over 15 years, Taproot Foundation has helped to define, build and advance the field of pro bono service around the globe. We have witnessed the transformative effect that pro bono service has on nonprofit organizations in helping them to increase their effectiveness and reach. We have seen the professional and personal development opportunities that pro bono service provides individual participants. And we know that human capital and professional expertise is an invaluable resource in addressing our society’s most pressing challenges. In 2017, we are piloting Taproot Campaigns. A Campaign is a statement of our commitment to deepening the impact of pro bono service. Through Campaigns, Taproot is able to: * Best leverage professional expertise to strategically address a critical social issue. * Maximize the individual development opportunities that are inherent within pro bono service * Respond to the ever-evolving needs of our nonprofit partners Our stakeholders range across for-profits, nonprofits, philanthropic organizations and individual community members, and we have successfully mobilized these diverse constituents behind a shared vision of social change success. We do not rest on our reputation or achievements. Our campaign work is indicative of our commitment to continue to lead, mobilize and engage professionals in pro bono service that drives social change.
