Skills-based volunteering is one of the fastest growing areas of corporate volunteering, and it brings value to both nonprofits and the employees who volunteer. Companies that offer domestic skills-based volunteer opportunities (pro bono and/or board service), regardless of what other programs are offered, have the highest overall volunteer participation rates. And in 2015 alone, more than half of all companies offered pro bono service programs. Skills-based programs offer a great deal of promise. Yet, understanding its overall impact on your nonprofit partners, the community, and your employees can be challenging. Integrating the program into your overall strategy and operationalizing it can also present additional hurdles.
Join CECP and Philanthropy New York for peer case studies offering models of success for skills-based volunteering programs; insights on the latest trends in skills-based volunteerism, from the 2016 edition of Giving in Numbers; and small table brainstorming on innovative ways to elevate these programs to achieve greater impact, while supporting business objectives.
The Service for Impact working group provides a unique opportunity for corporate grantmakers and corporate volunteer managers to foster a peer network, share successes and challenges, brainstorm on solutions, and explore new opportunities to make a difference in society while supporting business objectives through volunteerism.
