Make an impact in your community by bringing your professional skills and expertise to nonprofits and social change organizations. Taproot Foundation makes it easy for you to make a difference.
The Taproot Foundation is a nonprofit organization that connects nonprofits and other social change organizations with skilled volunteers through pro bono service. We power collaboration that connects communities and drives social change.
Taproot offers a range of opportunities to engage in meaningful pro bono work, depending on the time you have available. You can work on a large-scale team-based project over several months, tackle more bite-sized challenges that can be delivered in a day, or address needs that fall in between. Taproot has virtual opportunities and in-person engagements. We've got many options to suit your interest!
The Project Manager is the primary day-to-day point of contact with the nonprofit client on longer projects, and provides a leadership role on any type of pro bono engagement. The Project Manager owns the project schedule, ensures effective task delegation, and leads regular communication. Project Managers on Strategic HR projects also contribute subject matter expertise when relevant.
