Today, Deloitte is announcing the launch of a three-year, $50 million dollar commitment to support a new pro bono program designed to transform the way they support charitable organizations and strengthen the nonprofit sector.
While the size and scope of Deloitte’s commitment is truly impressive, the most significant element of their new program is the fact that Deloitte is fundamentally changing the way they approach pro bono in order to bring the full strength of their organization to bear for nonprofits. This innovative program is intended to serve as a model for other businesses looking to establish more effective pro bono programs.
As the overstretched nonprofit sector faces increasing pressure to solve critical social issues, a great deal of attention is being focused on how to leverage the strengths of the business community to build capacity for the nonprofit sector. Deloitte’s new pro bono program is a great example of how one company is rising to the challenge in hopes of creating meaningful social impact.
