Every year, non-profit organizations are spending billions of dollars on fees billed by service-providers. With a mission to offset this cost, at any given moment, verynice gives half of its services away for free by balancing pro-bono, discounted, and market rate projects. In addition, we make all of our approaches available for free online for all to use and learn from. This two-pronged strategy allows us to make our expertise available to as many people as possible.
verynice's projects have created impact across a wide range of sectors and industries including education, the arts, healthcare, human rights, environmental sustainability, animal welfare, and economic development. We measure the impact of our work on an ongoing basis by tracking the market value of the consulting time we have been able to offset through either our pro-bono services or open-access resources.
“At verynice, pro-bono work isn't something that employees do off the clock, with or without incentives. Rather, it's business as usual.” — Forbes Magazine
