Pro Bono Today: What's New, What's Working

We know why we do pro bono--to help nonprofits thrive and to develop employee talent. What LBG Associates and LBG Research Institute wanted to know more about was how we do pro bono today. So we went to the companies with reputations for having solid pro bono programs. We interviewed the company and a nonprofit partner to hear both sides. The result is a 60-page report that reveals all the ways that companies are moving the practice of pro bono forward.The report covers the trends, practices that address barriers to pro bono for nonprofits, the elements of success, and 10 case studies of successful projects.

This report wouldn't be possible without the support of our sponsors:

Gold: Andeavor, Booz Allen Hamilton, JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Silver: Macquarie Group, Target

Bronze: PIMCO

Best Practices in Corporate Citizenship: A Four-Part Series

What are best practices in corporate citizenship today? The world isn't the same as it was when we published the report “Trends and Best Practices in Corporate Community Involvement” back in 2007. We began our quest to identify best practices in all aspects of corporate citizenship by holding brainstorming meetings with a number of company CSR representatives. These conversations, plus our experience with clients over many years and recent publications by others, formed the basis for our best practices.

Balancing Pro Bono Supply and Demand: Challenges and Solutions from the Nonprofit Point of View

While pro bono is the fastest growing employee engagement program, according to CECP’s 2015 Giving in Numbers report, anecdotally it appears that the supply of volunteers is outpacing the demand for their services. LBG Associates and LBG Research Institute went directly to nonprofits to ask them why. With the support of corporate sponsors, including Platinum Lead Sponsor JPMorgan Chase, LBG surveyed nonprofits about their experiences with pro bono volunteers, what the challenges were and the solutions they had found for these challenges.
