Mission Statement

Our mission is to lead, mobilize and engage professionals in pro bono service that drives social change.


Most organizations tackling social problems don't have access to the marketing, design, technology, management or strategic planning resources they need to succeed. Without this talent, few are able to have their intended impact on critical issues like the environment, health and education.

Taproot is a nonprofit organization that makes business talent available to organizations working to improve society.

We engage the nation's millions of business professionals in pro bono services both through our award-winning programs and by partnering with companies to develop their pro bono programs. One day, we envision all organizations with promising solutions will be equipped to successfully take on urgent social challenges.

Would you recommend Taproot Foundation Bay Area?

Too many volunteers for too few opportunities. You have to waste an afternoon/evening commuting to a required "orientation," fill out a stack of paperwork, and then after that, nothing.

I have professional skills as an editor and writer 20 plus that I'd like to use for a good cause. I'm interested in copy eiting or writing white papers, grants or reports.

While I had great experiences with the Chicago Taproot office, I have to say the Washington office was a different story! They don't care about the volunteers or their opinions. All that matters is getting projects completed, whether the clients get crap or not.

I've worked with Taproot on 3 projects, in different roles, and each experience has been terrific. Projects are well-scoped and structured, there is solid support, and a network of smart, interesting, fun volunteers. I have and will continue to recommend Taproot to my colleagues and friends who are looking for new ways to apply their skills to a cause that matters.

Taproot, does a poor job of working with thier volunteers. If an organization is able to have the symptoms of bi-polar, Taproot has it. I think they have a great mission and vision it is just poorly executed at least in the Washington DC office. There is a reason they have problems finding web-designers as thier reputation proceeds them.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
