Since its founding, Pro Bono Partnership has consistently promoted best practices and accountability within the nonprofit sector. With our help, nonprofits can avoid crises, risks, and costly mistakes that might hamper their ability to serve their clients effectively.
“Pro Bono Partnership helped us obtain our 501 (c) 3 status and register with the state and federal governments, something we had been hoping to do for years, but lacked the legal capacity to do so. Directly due to donations being tax deductible, a donor made the largest contribution to our small organization at the end of the year. A photographer donated professional services to photograph some of the art we use to raise funds. We are still learning about all the ways being a 501 (c) 3 organization is changing our possibilities. It has given our organization more respect from clients, agencies, and other nonprofit organizations. We are able to pursue grants and other fundraising opportunities that were beyond our reach before. There is no limit to the gratitude we have for the Pro Bono Partnership.”
