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.

Initiatives with services valued between $5,000 and $20,000 with a realistic plan to implement (within one year or less) will be considered. Health in Common allocates 10% of revenue to the provision of pro bono services.

The deadline for applications is December 19, 2019.

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