Like the core root of a plant that inspires our name, Taproot nourishes social change organizations by connecting them with the expertise and insights of skilled volunteers, enabling both to thrive.
Taproot Foundation, a national nonprofit, connects nonprofits and social change organizations with passionate, business professionals who share their expertise pro bono. Taproot is creating a world where organizations dedicated to social change have full access—through pro bono service—to the marketing, strategy, HR, and IT resources they need to be most effective. Since 2001, Taproot’s network of skilled volunteers has served over 7,600 social change organizations providing more than 1.7 million hours of work worth over $204 million in value. Taproot has offices in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, and co-founded a network of global pro bono providers in over 30 countries around the world.
Through our Theory of Change, we will help social change organizations solve critical societal problems by ensuring that pro bono service is a readily available, effective, trusted, and commonly used resource for social change organizations to achieve their mission.
We believe it takes audacity to try to change the world and effective management to follow through.
We believe effective pro bono service puts the needs of the clients first.
We believe when people integrate their personality and values into their work, they have the greatest impact and are most fulfilled.
We believe people, organizations, and societies must constantly move forward to survive.
