Organizational Readiness

The Challenge:

Understanding whether your organization is ready to leverage the pro bono services delivered by skilled volunteers to better meet your mission.

Why is This Important?

Pro bono services can be transformational in helping an organization build its capacity. However, it requires a certain amount of infrastructure and planning to be in place for it to be a valuable investment for your organization. Without the right ‘readiness’ pieces in place an organization could likely face challenges like having a mismatch between your needs and the services provided, too much management time required, and low-quality results.

What Will You Learn?

  • Determine whether your organization is ready to engage in a skills-based volunteering project.
  • Identify steps you can take to improve your readiness for skills-based volunteering opportunities and understand the resources that are available to help you prepare.
  • Identify resources to engage in projects that are not skills-based.
