NEW YORK, June 5, 2009 — Today, hundreds of nonprofits nationwide, each struggling to meet an unprecedented demand for services despite a dramatic decline in cash contributions, will receive business counsel to help them more effectively run their organizations, at no cost. Deloitte is marking its 10th Annual IMPACT Day, a celebration of its year-round commitment to workplace volunteerism, by contributing the highly valued business skills of its people to hundreds of nonprofits across the country. More than 40,000 Deloitte personnel from some 70 communities are encouraged to participate.
NEW YORK, April 14, 2009 — According to the 2009 Deloitte Volunteer IMPACT Survey, both nonprofits and corporations are overlooking a high-impact opportunity to leverage pro bono and skilled volunteer support to offset a decline in corporate giving dollars. Despite the challenging economic backdrop, nearly 40 percent of nonprofit executives say they will spend between $50,000 and $250,000 or more of "hard-won" cash on outside contractors and consultants this year. Yet nearly one-quarter (24%) of nonprofit respondents have no plans to use skilled volunteers or pro bono support in any capacity in 2009. These national survey findings were released today in advance of National Volunteer Week, April 19 - 25, 2009.
