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!
