Project Management for Goodwill:  The Passion and Peril of Pro-Bono

Pro-bono work has the power to enable a positive change when the high cost of professional services are preventing a good cause from accomplishing it’s mission.   Project Managers are uniquely equipped with the skills that bring people together, inspire their commitment and maximize their contribution.  Includes Case Study overview.

Presentation Objectives

To convey the unique challenges, opportunities and rewards associated with Pro-Bono Work.

  • The true reward is the work itself, but it also builds business by strengthening relationship on a personal level.
  • Very few costs associated with Pro Bono work are actually tax deductible, but doing the work is good for business.
  • Different than volunteering – Pro Bono uses specific professional skills to help people who cannot afford them.
