It’s Back—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.

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.

The deadline for applications is June 1, 2018. For more information please visit our Pro Bono Planning and Evaluation Services page.
