Pro Bono Impact Survey

Monday, November 24, 2014

Last year Public Architecture joined in partnership with A Billion + Change--a national campaign aimed at inspiring companies of all shapes and sizes, and across industries, to do more skills based and pro bono service.   Through this process, the impact of The 1% network of nearly 1300 firms was added to A Billion + Change and the pledges of more than 500 of America’s leading businesses to mobilize more than $2B in pro bono action through this campaign.

 

            A Billion + Change has released a new pro bono impact survey for companies to evaluate their pro bono impact:

 

 “Developed by Points of Light, member organizations and companies of the Billion + Change Pro Bono Collaborative, the 2014 Pro Bono Benchmarking Survey is the first-ever attempt to standardize reporting and understanding of the value that communities and companies achieve when businesses donate their time, skills and expertise to tackle social challenges.”

 

They survey includes 30 multiple choice questions, and will allow companies to assess their pro bono impact in comparison to that of others.  The initial set of results will be released in winter 2014-2015 and can be used by participants to create a plan to increase impact in a target community.  Public Architecture encourages all of its 1% firms to take the survey, as it is important to show the architecture and design professions as early adopters of pro bono with integrated policies to compare to the larger business sector.  Forbes agrees:

 

“When it comes to employee volunteering and corporate philanthropy, pro bono service is the wave of the future.  So if your company is engaging in pro bono or is interested in doing so, take a moment to contribute to the understanding of this important emerging practice by participating in the Pro Bono Benchmarking Survey.”
