About Compass Greater Philadelphia

Compass believes nonprofits are the backbone of strong and vibrant communities and knows many are overstretched and under-resourced. Few can afford top-tier consulting firms. Utilizing volunteers from top companies in our local business communities, as well as other business professionals including attorneys and MBA alumni, Compass has provided over $91 million in pro bono consulting services to date while also placing 165 professionals onto 104 nonprofit boards. Compass launched in Washington, D.C. in 2001, and has since expanded to Greater Philadelphia and Chicago with plans to grow nationally. For more information, visit us at compassprobono.org.
