Taproot Foundation connects nonprofit organizations with pro bono services from corporate professionals. They cover four main areas of support: marketing, information technology, strategic management, and leadership development and strategic human resources. This grant will support Taproot in providing services to three of the Foundation’s Youth Service Improvement Grantees in New York City. Through past funding, Taproot has helped grantees develop their websites, Boards of Trustee recruitment plans, and strategic plans. Taproot’s Service Grants Program has been in existence for 12 years, and they have awarded more than 2,700 grants, which are worth nearly $120 million in pro bono consulting services.
As an extension of the Foundation’s Youth Service Improvement Grants program, this small grant provides capacity-building support to youth-serving organizations in our local community.
