Pro Bono Today

Pro Bono Today: What’s New,  What’s Working

We know why we do pro bono–to help nonprofits thrive and to develop employee talent. What LBG Associates and LBG Research Institute wanted to know more about was how we do pro bono today.

So we went to the companies with reputations for having solid pro bono programs. We interviewed the company and a nonprofit partner to hear both sides. The result is a 60-page report that reveals all the ways that companies are moving the practice of pro bono forward.

The report covers the trends, practices that address barriers to pro bono for nonprofits, the elements of success, and 10 case studies. 

This report wouldn’t be possible without the support of our sponsors:

Gold: Andeavor, Booz Allen Hamilton, JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Balancing Pro Bono Supply and Demand

Balancing Pro Bono Supply and Demand: Challenges and Solutions from the Nonprofit Point of  View

While pro bono is the fastest growing employee engagement program, according to CECP’s 2015 Giving in Numbers report, anecdotally it appears that the supply of volunteers is outpacing the demand for their services. If corporations want the promise of pro bono to be fulfilled, it is critical that the companies that supply these volunteers understand why nonprofits don’t take advantage of corporate talent.

LBG Associates and LBG Research Institute went directly to nonprofits to ask them why. With the support of corporate sponsors, including Platinum Lead Sponsor JPMorgan Chase, LBG surveyed nonprofits about their experiences with pro bono volunteers, what the challenges were and the solutions they had found for these challenges.

The study identified five top challenges nonprofits face when taking on a pro bono volunteer and suggests solutions that corporations can employ to help the nonprofit use their volunteers more effectively and guarantee the creation of a successful pro bono program for itself.
