TAPROOT PLUS MEMBERSHIP
We help nonprofits achieve their goals faster by connecting them with skilled pro bono consultants who can help them when and where they need it most. Taproot Plus accommodates a high volume of volunteers to self-select into pro bono consultations and projects and requires very little program management and oversight, although Taproot provides customer support, as needed.

Taproot Plus provides a unique opportunity for companies to amplify their brand’s affiliation with social good and scale their impact through sponsorship opportunities and our corporate membership product
A Taproot Plus corporate membership is a highly scalable way to encourage employees to find and complete their own pro bono consultations and projects.
Once the platform is launched at a company, employees can sign up and find nonprofits with needs that match their unique expertise, geographic location (if desired), and social impact interests.
Taproot Plus makes the initial connection and guides nonprofits and volunteers through the planning, project management, and execution of the pro bono project.
Taproot Plus provides customer support and requires very little program management and oversight. Currently, Taproot Plus is accessible to US-based nonprofits and volunteers as well as those in India and the EU.
Although many projects are taken on by individual volunteers, Taproot Plus enables nonprofits to staff a second volunteer on a project if relevant and supports individual volunteers in inviting a colleague to collaborate with them on a specific project.
Taproot Plus generates on-demand data reports to support employee engagement and tracking over time (as well as reporting on the engagement of your nonprofit partners.)

KEY METRICS REPORTS
Taproot Plus for Grantmakers
Taproot Foundation’s Online Platform for Pro Bono Engagement
Our team of pro bono experts will conduct outreach to your grantees and help scope high-quality projects. Our assessment tools also allow us to identify which grantees are best positioned to take on a pro bono project. This typically involves a survey followed by calls between our experts and nonprofit leaders.
Grantees are introduced to the platform and pro bono best practices through a quarterly webinar. In addition, grantees receive regular communications containing steps for getting started on a pro bono project, and tips and tools on making the most of their pro bono experience.
Your grantee projects are highlighted and prioritized on the Taproot Plus site and in e-mail communications to prospective volunteers. All created projects will feature your logo to increase brand lift and added credibility to grantee projects.
The Taproot Plus team is available to your grantees at every stage of the process - from scoping to wrap-up, we troubleshoot challenges to ensure a positive experience.
From videos to toolkits, we've amassed dozens of resources to make pro bono project management easy, effective, and mutually beneficial. Your grantees will have access to these resources as a part of your membership.
A dedicated Taproot Plus Customer Success Manager is available to provide support in all aspects of your Taproot Plus membership.
Taproot will track the activity of your grantees through the platform so you can measure the return on your investment.
Taproot will provide you with templated communications and guidance to support your engagement efforts, including connecting grantees to the platform.
Custom Landing Page
Perfect for grantmakers with a resource page, we create a co-branded domain with custom URL that provides access to all projects on the main Taproot Plus site.
