As we approach the anniversary of September 11, how will you observe the 9/11 National Day of Service? More than 35 million people observed this day last year by helping others, and this year we can inspire even more good by leveraging the full power of pro bono.

  • “Thanks so much—we had a great time working with you all … and are already plotting our next moves!” - Asheley Smith, WITS “A great day! High quality work. It was good to sit down and focus and nice to be able to get an outside perspective.” - Zan Brookshire, Treehouse Board President "Last year on IMPACT Day I was pulling weeds and it turns out I'm not very good at that. So when this opportunity came up to actually use my skills, I jumped on it!“ - Deloitte practitioner “I really appreciated the opportunity to apply my consulting skills to a small startup-like nonprofit, it was a refreshing change from my day-to-day” - Deloitte practitioner “This is THE most impactful thing Deloitte practitioners can do on IMPACT Day!” - Deloitte PPD “I haven’t felt that energized in my job as I did that day in quite a long time!” - Nonprofit participant “It was helpful to have the time to talk through challenges with experienced professionals outside of our organization.

  • Citi Skills Marathons Florencia Spangaro Director of Stakeholder Engagement and Strategy Citi Foundation
  • Summary Citi Skills Marathon: done-in-a-day, pro-bono model, which leverages the business expertise of Citi employees while addressing the critical needs of the NGO community. Small teams of seasoned Citi professionals are matched to pre-selected nonprofit organizations to complete a specific time-bound task. • Launched in 2012 in partnership with the Taproot Foundation • To date, 5 marathon events have taken place across the U.S. • Marathon events are linked to a specific theme (e.g. women, veterans, sustainability) • “Tasks” align with our community partners’ needs & our core competencies: financial modeling, cost analysis, succession planning, etc. • Program results in concrete deliverables at the end of a single day (e.g. excel file/financial model, PowerPoint presentation/strategy, tagline options)
  • Nonprofit Impact**: • Increased nonprofit capacity: 96% said that the deliverables from the event can be implemented; 90% plan to implement the deliverable and believe it will strengthen their organization • Value add: 100% would participate in another event and 100% would recommend the program to an industry peer Employee Impact**: • Skill development: 96% found it fulfilling to apply their existing expertise in a new and different context; 80% of employees felt that the program enabled them to learn and develop professional skills (career skills, networking, leadership experience); • Pride/team building: 96% said the event made them feel proud of Citi; 96% felt that their team provided high-quality support to the nonprofit; 97% would recommend event to colleagues The Numbers: • 35 organizations, 790 hours of service, 158 Citi executives • Total value of the time donated: $94,800* Impact “It was very helpful for our team to receive unfiltered & honest feedback from neutral parties who were solely interested in helping us to knot out some thorny issues.” - NGO Executive Director “I was able to pull from on- the-job [banking] experiences to provide them with the tools needed to create scale to a pilot program.” - Citi Employee * Based on CECP estimates of $120/hour for mid-level employees ** All participants are asked to complete an online feedback survey after the event.
  • Key Takeaways • One-day pro-bono model is a great fit for our organizational structure and aligns to our ‘more than philanthropy’ approach • Third-party (Taproot) brought invaluable expertise, particularly in the process of screening nonprofits for participation readiness and designing “right-sized” tasks • Matching skills required by non-profit to capacity of employees is critical ; don’t be afraid to say “thanks, but no thanks” • Model requires precise planning and logistics – there is no ‘room’ for errors • Getting the balance right between too much or too little pre-event preparation is challenging • Importance of starting small but planning big – piloted in the US yet designed for global marketplace; currently working on international expansion for Q4 2013 What we have learned • Partnerships – sourcing partners and understanding their needs • Employee Appetite – degree of interest in pro- bono activity & determining frequency • Preparation – advance materials and briefing; scoping the right tasks • Senior Champion– bringing credibility and supporting recruitment process • Impact Measurement – survey tools • Communication – pre, during and post Things to consider
