WEBINAR // Taproot+: The simple, free way to give and get pro bono service

Thursday, October 27 12:30 PM PT / 2:30 PM CT / 3:30 PM ET

In one year, Dr. LeRoy Boikai, President of the Village Improvement Project, Inc. (VIP) which works to enhance the quality of life for village communities in rural Liberia, led the way to build VIP’s brand, redesign their website, improve their social media presence, design a cook stove prototype, and create job descriptions and committee task sheets for their board of directors. LeRoy had neither an army of staff nor an overflowing budget; so, how’d he do it?

LeRoy signed up on Taproot+, the free online marketplace for pro bono service, and began posting one or two focused project needs at a time. He was quickly matched with passionate volunteers who were skilled in design, communications, and business strategy. They jumped at the opportunity to help VIP move its mission forward.
