This latest release from Taproot Foundation offer their collective decades of experience in a simple, easy to use, follow, understand and practical guide.

Some of the best features that makes Powered By Pro Bono far above the rest:

1) It is actually usable.
There are so many books out there that either recount successes of project management, or theory OR they're all workbook and no context. This is neither one - Powered by Pro Bono gives a reader enough strategy and insight to clue in to the process, but enough tools to make it applicable to what you're doing

2) It's a great tool for everyone
No matter if you're upper management of a non-profit, a professional consultant thinking about doing pro bono work, a seasoned pro bono professional, or even a regular paid consultant, a junior team member or project leader, this is for you. There are great project management and team leadership skills and tools that are relevant (and wise) for all professions, sectors and experience levels.

3) It's a great tool for anytime
No matter where you are in your project (concept, implementation, review), Powered by Pro Bono will help you figure out where you've been, where you want to go, and what you need to do to get you there

4) It's inspirational
Not only is it a great tool, but it's got a TON of resources and examples for what pro bono work is capable of achieving.

The best part about Powered by Pro Bono is that it leaves success up to you. It's not one of those prescriptive books which requires steps A-Z to be followed exactly - you can use it however you NEED to use it. You can just read chapters to expose yourself or your team to ideas, concepts or processes, or you can go through it line by line, use worksheets and make it a blue print for your project.

Great book. Must have for anyone remotely related to the social sector.

If, like me, you've run a nonprofit organization, then you know that free services, pro bono consultants, and in-kind gifts are not always as time and cost effective as they initially appear to be. Through clear and easy to follow steps, Powered by Pro Bono brings a thoughtful and strategic approach to this process. It shifts the thinking and practice of being reactive to accepting pro bono support, to proactively planning for and seeking out pro bono when the need, timing, and provider, are right for your organization.

This book is an impressive collection of the knowledge that Taproot has gained over the last 10 years and serves as a step-by-step guide through each stage of a pro bono engagement. From scoping the need to securing the pro bono resources, managing the project and scaling to a point where critical needs related to organizational infrastructure can be routinely met via pro bono, this book enables nonprofits to maximize its impact.
Many of the insights and practical recommendations are valid not only for nonprofits in the USA but around the world.

This book helps to shift the the dialogue among nonprofits from `how can we get some free stuff ' to `how can we make pro bono a viable part of our business strategy.' Nonprofits would be well advised to use this guide as a tool to prepare their organizations for pro bono service and to manage that service in a way that can create long-term impact. The step-by-step instructions make it easy for any nonprofit to start the process now.
