Get the Right Support to the Right Nonprofit at the Right Time
It's a common misconception that the bigger and more complex a pro bono initiative is, the higher the impact will be for nonprofits, your employees, and the company itself. In fact, the biggest determinant of a program's impact is not its scale or complexity but the quality of the match between employees' expertise and nonprofits' needs. Great pro bono initiatives have one thing in common - the right support for the right nonprofit at the right time. In this 3-part series, Taproot breaks down how to ensure you're making the right match. Check out our series overviewthen get started with Part 1.

We just wrapped a terrific Global Pro Bono Summit in Lisbon, Portugal. This year's gathering was hosted by Taproot and the BMW Foundation along with local partner, Social Entrepreneurs Agency. In its fifth year, the Summit was composed of pro bono leaders from across sectors and 27 countries who gathered to build the strength and momentum of global pro bono. It's amazing to see how much the Global Pro Bono Network has grown since we created it with the BMW Foundation in 2012.And most exciting? The best days are ahead!
