August 14, 2013 /3BL Media/ - The Taproot Foundation highlights four key partners who have signed up to champion Pro Bono Week 2013. Through a series of key initiatives Deloitte, Capital One, Citi Foundation,  and Washington Gas are celebrating pro bono programs.

Deloitte is a long-time leader in the pro bono field and a key partner of Taproot Foundation. In addition to their financial support, they have provided leadership and advisement to Taproot over the years; Evan Hochberg, National Director of Community Involvement is a Taproot board member emeritus. Deloitte is sponsoring Pro Bono Week 2013 to help raise awareness and drive the marketplace forward, accompanying its recent commitment to providing $60 million in pro bono services to nonprofits over the next three years.

Capital One, as part of its ‘One Week’ national community service initiative, has partnered with Taproot to sponsor Pro Bono Week 2013 and host two ScopeAthons – 3-hour events in which Capital One employees will unleash their expertise to diagnose challenges faced by nonprofit partners in their Chicago and Dallas markets, and then translate those challenges into an actionable scope of work that set nonprofit up for a successful capacity-building projects.

Citi Foundation has a deep commitment both to driving the pro bono service movement forward and to supporting the New York City nonprofit network. As part of its’ Pro Bono Week commitment, Citi Foundation is hosting Pro Bono Day NYC – an event bringing pro bono providers and nonprofits together, catalyzing the pro bono marketplace in NYC and connecting passion to purpose.

Washington Gas has a reputation as a strong supporter of social change organizations in the National Capital Region and, as part of their Pro Bono Week commitment is facilitating local programming highlighting the pro bono efforts in the region


Since 2001, Taproot Foundation has proven that pro bono service is a viable and reliable tool for strengthening nonprofit organizations. Today, Taproot continues to lead nationally by acting locally, and seeks to build a pro bono marketplace that, like philanthropy, is large, accessible, professional and transparent. By taking lessons learned from our award-winning Service Grant Program and applying them to our innovative new program areas, we work to stimulate the supply of pro bono resources through our corporate Advisory Services practice, as well as demand for these services by giving nonprofits the tools and training that sets them up for successful pro bono engagements. Our work has evolved to include thought leadership and international field-building, convening global leaders in the social sector to guide the design and direction of the pro bono movement while focusing on infusing a pro bono ethic into business professions, professional schools, companies and nonprofits in communities across the country and around the world.

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.
