Accelerate Change - Taproot Foundation's Hunger Initiative

For over 15 years, Taproot Foundation has helped to define, build, and advance the field of pro bono service around the globe. We've witnessed the transformative effect that pro bono service has on nonprofit organizations. 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. Taproot's ACCELERATE CHANGE initiative is contributing to ending hunger and food insecurity by leveraging a person’s highest level skills to tackle one of the world’s largest problems.
