About Us

The Nonprofit Collaborative, consisting of Points of Light, the Taproot Foundation, and Common Impact, was initially convened by Capital One in February 2011. The Collaborative came together to identify, organize and share resources that will help the nonprofit sector be ready to engage in and benefit from pro bono professional services.

By bringing these three organizations together, Capital One hopes to identify and assess existing pro bono readiness support, understand areas of additional need, and encourage efficiency by reducing redundancy. As a response to the initial convening, over the past year the Collaborative identified the strategic value in building out a Pro Bono Readiness Roadmap to index the existing resources and services that support nonprofits in navigating how to become ready to engage in pro bono consulting services.

The Roadmap, launched at the 2012 National Conference on Volunteering and Service, will allow nonprofits nationwide easy, online access to navigate resources from Common Impact, Points of Light, and Taproot Foundation, among others, to help them prepare for pro bono services.
