Pro Bono Planning and Evaluation Services

Not-for-profits have a positive impact in our communities.

In an effort to further strengthen the not-for-profit sector, Health in Common is providing pro bono planning and evaluation services. Pro bono services can include facilitating stakeholder engagement, developing a strategic plan or evaluating an initiative.

Health in Common is a not-for-profit organization that provides planning and evaluation services on a fee-for-service basis. Grounded in years of community based experience, Health in Common’s knowledge and skills provide a practical, capacity building approach to planning and evaluation.

Does your work help create healthy communities?
Are you working within and across sectors to strengthen impact?
Does your work address community-identified issues?


If the answer is yes to one or more of these questions,
you may be eligible for free services.


Initiatives with services valued between $5,000 and $20,000 with a realistic plan to implement (within one year or less) will be considered.

Government departments, individuals, political activities and exclusively religious initiatives are not eligible.

For more information please visit our Pro Bono Planning and Evaluation Services page.
