Catchafire is a national capacity building organization that seeks to create a more efficient and effective social good sector and a world where it is commonplace to serve for the greater good. We are the largest online provider of pro bono, connecting talented individuals with purpose-driven organizations on well-scoped, discrete projects.


Pro bono--short for pro bono publico, "for the public good"—refers to professional services delivered without expectation of a fee to organizations serving the social good. It is both a form of support for community organizations as well as an increasingly core part of the ethic of business professionals from design to HR and technology, who believe that high-quality professional services are too important to only be available to those who can afford them.
