(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) October 14, 2010 - Before your company embarks on a pro bono project for a good cause, it’s important to explore the right model. In the latest Best Practice Network webinar from VolunteerMatch, Taproot Foundation’s Carol Guttery will provide an overview and case studies of eight different ways that companies can contribute their services to social benefit organizations.

Effective pro bono service comes in many shapes and sizes. The ideal situation for any corporation wishing to develop or expand a pro bono program is to find a solution that marries its goals for social sector impact with its goals for corporate engagement.

In this webinar, Carol Guttery, Director of Program Development, Advisory Services, for Taproot Foundation will examine eight proven models of pro bono service. Ms. Guttery will offer case studies that describe and illuminate each model, and discuss each one’s particular characteristics and potential for bringing benefit back to the social sector and the corporation.

At the Taproot Foundation, Carol Guttery helps companies to assess, develop and scale their own effective pro bono programs. Through its Service Grants, Taproot Foundation brings together skilled volunteers to contribute pro bono services as a team to qualifying community organizations. Ms. Guttery has had a leadership role in growing the national nonprofit organization’s Service Grant initiative from a two-city program to one that currently supports over 350 pro bono projects in five cities, and Ms. Guttery has developed tools, processes and best practices that helped to establish the standard for quality delivery of pro bono services to nonprofits.

In addition to the Taproot Foundation, Carol has spent time in the nonprofit sector working for the Sierra Club, helping to grow its National Advisory Council and also as a pro bono consultant for Wildlife Conservation Network. She also worked for 18 years in the corporate sector.
