Volunteer pro bono
Contributing your professional skills is as crucial to helping high-potential charities as giving money.
Pro bono expertise is a significant component in our three-part support package. Professionals who volunteer their ‘day job’ skills help to build the capacity of our portfolio organisations – and provide them with the quality of expertise that they would otherwise not be able to access.
Our investment team identifies the most critical needs of our portfolio charities and then sources highly skilled volunteers from our extensive pro bono network to share their talent on strategic projects. Professionals contributing their skills can make a real difference to a charity – helping the organisation to develop its business plan, strategic review, financial systems, leadership coaching, fundraising strategy, IT systems and the like.
In 2016, over 40 firms and 80 individuals in our pro bono network donated over 6,000 hours to over 90 projects to our charity partners, worth £2.1m.
Find out more about joining our pro bono community – and make your impact on improving the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.
