Giving Beyond the Grant: Do You Pro-Bono?

Monday, September 29, 2014

Ever wish you could provide your grantee with more than just your grant? You can!

Providing pro-bono services offers your grantees something just as valuable as grant money—expertise. 

Communications strategy, information technology, leadership development, organization effectiveness—developing in-house expertise in any of these areas takes time and money. As many nonprofits don’t often have a surplus of either of those two resources, a pro-bono expert can provide much-needed services while also helping a nonprofit develop the skills needed to do the work themselves.

But where do foundations fit in?

I’m glad you asked because as part of the upcoming Pro-Bono Week, NCG is partnering with the Taproot Foundation to present a special program that will highlight how funders can complement their grantmaking with pro-bono services.

You should be there. Why?

Because you have more resources at your disposal than just grant money.

Because expertise is just as valuable as a grant.

Because complementing your grant with pro-bono services can increase the effectiveness of your work.
