Powered By Pro Bono: The Nonprofit’s Step-By-Step Guide to: Scoping, Securing, Managing, and Scaling Pro Bono Resources
While we aren’t always able to measure the value of the pro bono support we receive each year (this was especially difficult in the early days), we estimate that 25 percent of our current budget is pro bono and in-kind resources. We would not be able to do a fraction of our work without this support. -Aaron Hurst
