Apr 23rd, 2012 Social Impact
Hear ye, Hear ye!
BE IT RESOLVED that April 19th, 2012 has been hereby proclaimed as Taproot Foundation Day in San Francisco! During an exciting and emotional Tenth Anniversary event last week, Mayor Lee of San Francisco gave Taproot the tremendous honor of an official proclamation.
The proclamation provides some highlights and accomplishments over the last 10 years, including:
- Taproot Foundation has engaged 3,500 Bay Area pro bono consultants to deliver $30 million in pro bono service to 500 Bay Area nonprofit organizations; as a national movement, Taproot and its pro bono consultants have provided $100 million in pro bono service.
- Taproot Foundation bridges sectors, bringing together nonprofit organizations, private foundations, corporations and business professionals to create an innovative, global pro bono movement.
- Taproot is launching its newest program, “Powered by Pro Bono,” which shares their best practices from the last 10 years so that organizations can reliably and independently scope, secure and manage pro bono services, which are necessary to solicit, obtain, and make strong use of resources in our communities.
We, at Taproot would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our friends, supporters, and fellow pro bono junkies for all that you have done to make Taproot and the pro bono movement into what it is today. We can’t wait to MAKE IT MATTER for another 10 years!
