This Pro Bono Week, Taproot Foundation is spotlighting nonprofits who are making a difference in their communities through pro bono support.
Each and every day, nonprofit organizations are working to make their communities a better place by lifting up those they serve. And they’re taking on this work with the support of business professionals sharing their expertise pro bono. This photo series highlights five nonprofit organizations that have tapped into pro bono service to build their capacity to do more.

“Financially CLEAN recently concluded an eight-week financial literacy workshop in partnership with the Brooklyn Borough President, Eric Adams, at Borough Hall. CLEAN hopes to be able to use this successful event as a footprint to bring its classes nationwide. With Taproot’s support, CLEAN is working to better quantify the long term impact its classes have on attendees and the community to better illustrate its value proposition.”

“Queen Sheba Village (QSV) is a small volunteer-run nonprofit organization working on the ground in Senegal and West Africa to empower women, girls, and the youth at large through to thrive and better their lives through education. We find this to be rewarding despite the challenges we continue to endure. The support we have received has been so good that many admiring fans have requested QSV to serve and work in other villages and even other neighboring countries. Taproot pro bono professionals are a God-send! At this time we are working on a Budget Analysis Project. We believe and hope this project will help us to create and accomplish in the near future a tangible project that will proudly serve and increase the impact of the people we continue to serve. We continue to thank the Taproot Plus team for the awesome support they have provided to us. Blessings to Taproot Foundation. *The photography credit goes to pro bono professional Mr. Norman Lau of San Francisco, California.”

“The Green Chair Project was in the midst of completing the transition of ALL of our data into a centralized database. We could never have accomplished this huge undertaking alone. It is through collaborations like pro bono support that help nonprofits increase efficiencies, expand their reach in the community, fulfill their respective missions, and increase the quality of life for our citizens.”
Right: The League of Creative Interventionists
“The League of Creative Interventionists’ Taproot Marathon challenge was communication. We needed to figure out how to tell our stories so that everyone can relate and see the impact our projects can have in their communities. One way we’ve done this is to create images like this that show how everyone can be an Interventionist.”

“Our agency serves as a personal care epicenter as we provide love, hope, and soap to the community (e.g. homeless, veterans, domestic violence, and youth facilities) throughout the entire year. [Toiletry and Company, Inc.] linked up with a Taproot marketing volunteer who helped us develop, design, and learn ways to spread the word about our programs.”
