Pro Bono Agreement

The key to carrying out a pro-bono project is to treat the commitment in the same way as in a paid gig. Would you accept a paid commitment without adequate protection for you and your business? All right. I hope not! Agreements are often excluded from commitments that do not trade dollars. This is partly due to the fact that the narrowness of society in “value” is determined only by something that is monetary. That is completely untrue. In every exchange of value, you need an agreement to best protect both parties.

Many large and small financial institutions have their own pro-bono programs. Some companies offer tutoring agreements with other companies or schools. Others adapt their pro-bono offerings to certain companies that highlight their unique strengths. It`s easy to learn about corporate sponsorship programs by browsing a company`s website. These activities are usually explained in the “Frequently Asked Questions” or “About Us” sections. Many factors are involved in the decision to perform or support the pro bono work. Sometimes the motives are altruistic. In other cases, the goal is to promote an image or create professional connections. More often than not, pro-bono work is powered by a mixture of patterns.
