What is pro bono consulting?
Pro bono means “for common good”. Pro bono consulting is a practice where skilled individuals engage on social impact projects for free during their free time.
Are the pro bono consultants different from volunteers?
Pro bono consultants are skilled volunteers who are eager to work on the challenging problems in social impact sector using their skills. They are different from unskilled volunteers who usually work on an NGOs grass root level programs.
How do I know if my organization needs skilled consultants?
If your organization is facing a problem which you think can be solved by an expert, then you may need skilled consultants. For example, you may need a marketing consultant to create a plan for increasing your presence on social media. You can always get in touch with us if you are unsure.
How much time will the consultants be able to give to my projects?
It depends on each project and the individual consultant but we expect around 6-8 hours per week for 3 months. These consultants are skilled individuals who may have other engagements and full time jobs, so it is recommended to be respectful of their time.
How does WeDoGood provide support post the selection of the consultant?
We engage with both you and the consultant on a bi-weekly basis to make sure all the things are working fine. We try to address any feedback so that both you (organization) and the consultant have good experience.
Can our organization engage the consultants for a longer duration or for another project after the current project ends?
The consultants are not affiliated to WeDoGood. Post the completion of the project, if both of you like each other and the consultant doesn’t have any issue with the continuation, you have have them for other projects as well. However, we won't be able to provide regular support that we do during the project period.
How does WeDoGood find the consultants?
We have a marketing funnel that helps us to reach out to people who are looking to skill up by volunteering their additional time outside their job / education to solve complex problems.
How much does WeDoGood charge for providing the consultants?
We charge a small nominal fee to find the right people for your organisation. It is to ensure that our structure is sustainable and we are able to help you forward in long run. We do not pay any consultants for their pro-bono work.
Is WeDoGood registered as an NPO?
We are registered as a not-for-profit organization as a Section 8 company.
How many consultants will be associated with my project?
We try to evaluate the project requirements. Based on our evaluation, we provide 1-3 consultants for each project.
Do you only help registered non-profit ?
Our main focus is to help registered non-profits only. But if you are any other type of social organization, we might consider taking up your project post our evaluation.
We would need our volunteers to come to our office / centre. Is it possible to get volunteers who can travel onground ?
We are currently focusing on virtual opportunities only. But in case where it is super neccesary, we can try to find someone who can provide the support on-ground.
What are your expectations from the collaborated organizations?
We want the organization to provide regular and proper visibility to both us and the consultant. We also want them to have one point of contact always available to the consultant so that they can complete their work on time.
