How it works

This model is most suitable for a tech company that has a dedicated group of experts focused on researching and developing new products, services, or technologies. These team members use their expertise and creativity to develop innovative ideas that can help the company and its customers solve problems in new and creative ways. By connecting this group with nonprofit organizations, the impactful projects can bring significant changes in the way the nonprofit tackles their problem area. 


What is the typical scale of engagement in this model?

Up to 2 months

Benefits for your company:

  • Using your team’s expertise and resources to make a positive impact in the world. 
  • It provides you with an opportunity to work on innovative projects that can help you stay ahead of the competition. By collaborating with nonprofits, your R&D team can gain valuable experience and knowledge that can be applied to your own products or services. 
  • It can help you attract and retain talented employees who are passionate about making a difference in the world. More and more people today are looking for jobs that allow them to have a positive impact, and working on nonprofit projects can be a great way for employees to get that satisfaction.

Tech To The Rescue recommended process to work with this model:

Step 1

Define your objectives that you hope to achieve through the engagement with a nonprofit organization. Are you looking to develop new products or improve employee engagement? Having clear objectives will help you identify the right nonprofit projects to engage with. 

Step 2

Determine the specific skills, expertise and time your R&D team can bring to the table. This will help you filter projects that align with your team’s strengths and capabilities. 

Step 3

Pick the projects that match your interests and goals. Contact one of our Matching Managers to help you create a personalized list of recommended impactful projects.

Risks management:

R&D teams can be resource-intensive. To mitigate this risk, you need to ensure that they are dedicating the right amount of resources to the project and that it aligns with your overall business goals.

Undertaking the fulfilling journey of pro bono work for NGOs is not merely an act of charity; it serves as a profound source of satisfaction and purpose. If your company is considering such involvement, my suggestion is to fully commit. Explore the magic that arises when aligning your skills and resources with causes that resonate deeply with your team. Approach each pro bono project as a collaborative narrative, where your expertise merges with the meaningful missions of NGOs, creating a powerful synergy. I would like to stress that working with NGOs is more than completing a task; it’s about recognizing our responsibility as a company to collaborate for a good cause and contribute to creating a better society.
