Published on

A Billion + Change (www.abillionpluschange.org) is a swiftly growing national campaign to inspire billions of dollars of pro bono and skills-based services from businesses in 2013. Dozens of VolunteerMatch clients and partners have signed on to A Billion + Change, and recently VolunteerMatch itself committed to continue supporting our network of companies with solutions and services that make it easier to manage pro bono initiatives.

Launched just a few years ago, the campaign is already close to its goal of mobilizing 500 businesses to lend their best skills and talents to the nonprofit sector. What’s motivating so many companies and nonprofits to pledge to do more with pro bono? What are the major challenges and opportunities ahead for pro bono service? How is A Billion + Change transforming how businesses leverage their employees to make a lasting impact on society?

In our March Best Practice Network Webinar, Jennifer Lawson, Executive Director of A Billion + Change, will be in conversation with VolunteerMatch’s Robert Rosenthal. They will discuss how any individual business can make a difference—but 500 companies, working side-by-side, can change entire communities.

Speakers:
Jennifer Lawson, Executive Director, A Billion + Change
Erin Dieterich
Robert Rosenthal, Vice President, Marketing & Communications, VolunteerMatch
