Deloitte is delighted to share the news that A Billion + Change announced it has signed up 100 companies to take the pro bono pledge! That adds up to a combined total of $1.7 billion and at least 11.5 million hours of time and talent to nonprofits. The goal is 500 companies by the end of 2013 so the march is on! 

“A company can have a profound impact on its communities by donating knowledge and skills to help nonprofits become stronger, more sustainable organizations. We are proud to encourage other companies to take the A Billion + Change pledge and help make skills-based volunteering the ‘new normal’ in their workplace,” said Evan Hochberg, national leader of Deloitte’s community involvement initiative. Deloitte is a founding member of A Billion + Change’s Leadership Committee and has committed to perform $110 million in pro bono work for leading nonprofits.
