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. Health in Common allocates 10% of revenue to the provision of pro bono services.

The deadline for applications is November 16, 2018.

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