Meet Aaron Hurst of the Taproot Foundation and learn about building capacity through free services.

As nonprofit organizations struggle to build internal capacity and sustainable revenue models, pro bono resources can increase financial stability and make new opportunities achievable. Learn how your nonprofit can avoid doing more with less, and instead make use of free and low-cost resources to do more with more. From dynamic marketing to executive search support, pro bono services can play a transformative role in growing and sustaining strong nonprofit organizations, helping them to serve their communities despite the challenges of the economic climate.

Aaron Hurst, founder and president of Taproot Foundation, will discuss highlights from Taproot’s new book, Powered by Pro Bono (Jossey-Bass, 2012). This new resource for the nonprofit community presents a step-by-step guide to enable nonprofits to plan for and turn on their pro bono potential.
