Delivering pro bono services is an important part of how we help our communities thrive. By sharing the skills of our people, we help enable non-profits to achieve their missions and serve our communities. We provide our skills through three primary approaches: formal fee-waived engagements; loaned staff; and the time our partners and staff commit to board positions at non-profit organizations.

In response to the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, 2013, PwC provided the skills of our people to work with the management of One Fund Boston to create and implement processes to responsibly and efficiently receive, track, and process donations, ultimately contributing to the collection of over $60 million in donations by June 30, 2013. We also worked with the Fund’s claims administrator to assess and categorize claims filed to efficiently and equitably distribute the donations collected for the victims and families impacted by this tragic event.
PwC is a signatory to this global coalition for water sustainability and has made a pro bono commitment to co-lead the CEO Water Mandate’s Corporate Water Disclosure Guidelines. We are working on this project with the UN and a range of stakeholders including NGOs, corporations, and water experts globally. We launched the Exposure Draft in 2012 and are soliciting feedback for the final draft. PwC recognizes the importance of water to environmental sustainability and business continuity and we are committed to helping protect and preserve this vital natural resource.
“I was humbled and inspired not only by the opportunity to help provide aid to the survivors and families, but also to witness the generosity and resilience of the global community. My time on the One Fund continues to be my most rewarding experience to date, both personally and professionally. I have never been prouder to work at PwC.”
