Deloitte Announces Innovative Pro Bono Program & $50 M Commitment

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.

  1. The overstretched nonprofit sector is going to face increasing pressure in the future as profits continue to be king. I have offered a competition on my blog to send a photo, story and accommodation you can offer to any budding bed and breakfast person in the world. I shall advertise the winner’s property for free and offer free start up consultancy. Bed and breakfast is taking off in the most unlikely places, like the black townships of South Africa where the community offers guides to Nelson Mandela’s and Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s homes, with sales lines like,’Do you know why this is the most famous area in the world?’ Answer ‘Because it is home to two Nobel Peace prize winners.’ Please pass my offer on to any of your contacts.
