No Longer Accepting Proposals


The 2017 Strategic Pro Bono/Skills-Based Volunteering Initiative is designed to accelerate the use of pro bono volunteers and match your nonprofit with volunteers who can meet your needs!


Professionals with a variety of skills and expertise want to help YOU.


This Is How It Works:

  1. Complete the Pro Bono Project Proposal Template. (No Longer Accepting Proposals)
  1. NYC Service will notify you if and when your proposal has been sent to a Strategic Pro Bono Partner for their consideration.
  1. After 30 days, NYC Service will follow-up with you to determine if your pro bono project was matched with a volunteer; if a match is not made, NYC Service will share your proposal with another Strategic Pro Bono Partner.


What We Look For in Your Proposal

A match is not guaranteed so be sure that your proposal is complete, thoughtful, and meets the following criteria:

  • Completed by a representative from a 501c3
  • Demonstrates a compelling pro bono/skills-based volunteering need
  • Demonstrates a capacity to manage pro bono/skills-based volunteers
  • Describes a project that can be completed in no fewer than 2 weeks

Our Strategic Pro Bono Partners: American Express, Capital One, Citi, Con Edison, Deutsche Bank, Harvard Business School Community Partners, IBM, and Taproot+.
