Here comes an intro about
Pro Bono Week
In February 2013, the BMW Foundation and the Taproot Foundation hosted the first ever Global Pro Bono Summit in New York City, an annual gathering of leaders with a shared vision to make the talents and skills of the business community accessible to organizations working for our collective good. Since then, organizations from this group have formed the Global Pro Bono Network and have been committed to partner and spread the pro bono movement around the world. Their first contribution to the sector has been to develop the website probonoweek.org.
Pro Bono Week is a global celebration that takes place every year during the last week of October. It celebrates the pro bono ethic across the professions that use their talents to make a positive difference in local communities around the world. Every year, thousands of people volunteer their professional expertise in marketing, legal services, HR, strategy and IT to support nonprofits. In 2018, more than 50 events hosted in 17 countries have been organized during Pro Bono Week.
