Pro Bono 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.
