“Around the Corner” is a PhillyCAM show that offers local social impact leaders the opportunity to share what impact their work is having on the Philadelphia area.
How does your for-profit support the local nonprofit community?
Compass connects nonprofits to business professionals, which provide pro bono consulting and strategic support to them for nine months, as explained by the Philadelphia branch’s executive director, Beth Dahle.
In Dahle’s past three years leading the organization, she’s learned that “not only is there a lot of interest and need among the nonprofits, but there is overwhelming … need for business professionals to be able to give back to their community in this way, by bringing their own business expertise to bear on the nonprofits.”
According to Dahle, Compass’s total facilitated pro bono work will be valued at over $3.7 million at the end of the upcoming fourth cycle. Applications are now open for consulting professionals who want to volunteer for the 2016-2017 class of nonprofit clients seeking help with funding strategies, board development and strategic alignment.
Check out her Around the Corner interview with Generocity Community Manager Mo Manklang for more details.
