For Mid-Career Leaders: United for Greatness
For professionals with highly sought after skills, pro-bono consulting is an attractive, low-stress way to give back to a favorite nonprofit. But where and how?
In partnership with the Great Game of Business, United Way organizes United for Greatness events hosted at a variety of nonprofits. Designed as one-day deep dives, local experts come together and give their time and talent to help a nonprofit tackle a problem, address an organizational need or scale a revenue driving effort.
Last summer, more than a dozen experts in sales, marketing, business and startups came together at Harmony House to develop a business plan for life-sized portraits, already created by photographer Randy Bacon, that illuminated stories of domestic abuse survivors. In just a few hours, the team developed a five-year business plan for a traveling art exhibit, with metrics, strategies and measurable action steps.
SRC Holdings Executive Vice President Tim Stack led the team during the effort, collaborating with Harmony House leaders during every step.
“Nonprofits rarely lack passion, but sometimes they don’t have the resources to invest in areas needed to execute on a project or business plan,” said Stack. “Witnessing the expertise of the community volunteers paired with the passion and energy each person brought was incredibly rewarding.”
