This essential resource offers the much-needed tools and a framework for implementing a pro bono program within a nonprofit organization. The book is based on the author's national research and profiles eight distinct models of pro bono service. The book includes information on how to create and sustain a successful pro bono project and offers guidance on negotiating and managing an effective program. In addition to providing blueprints for managing each stage of pro bono project, the book answers such questions as "how to tie pro bono into your strategic planning process and staffing plans," "how to build long term relationships with companies," and "how to turn pro bono into something bigger, long term and integrated."

Independent Sector: Charting Impact

At the heart of Charting Impact are five powerful questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. For each nonprofit or foundation, Charting Impact encourages strategic thinking about how it will achieve its goals. Responding to the five questions creates a unique report that shares concise, detailed information about plans and progress with key stakeholders, including the public. Research conducted in 2012 shows that demonstrating impact to donors, the community or major funders is the number one reason why organizations complete their reports. This “aha” moment comes once they discover the added value that grows out of the Charting Impact process.
