GoProBono

GoProBono was a skill sharing super hub that boosts access to and raises awareness of skilled volunteering opportunities.

It was a free, digital tool for charities, businesses and individuals looking for skills-based volunteering opportunities.

Through one searchable platform, charities and skilled volunteers can now access thousands of skill sharing opportunities across London and the UK from one place.

GoProBono was developed in 2014 by Coalition for Efficiency’s former CEO, Marina Sevier, in collaboration with City Philanthropy A Wealth of Opportunity and funded by the City of London Corporations charity, The City Bridge Trust.

It launched as part of the 30th anniversary of National Volunteers Week in May 2014.  In May 2015, the ownership of GoProBono moved to the Do-It Trust whose mission is to bring people together to help solve society’s problems through voluntary and civic action.

The Trustee’s Dilemma

The Trustee’s Dilemma: To Spend or to Save?

This research from 2010 explored the theme of how charities can best use their resources and how they can maximise the benefits of available funds to deliver their mission.

It investigates the balance between the financial conservatism of trustees and the need to fulfil the charities missions by spending their capital.

It looks into three distinctive case studies; those of Guys and St Thomas Charity, RNLI and Oxfam.

Trustee Guide

In 2013, we published a guide a practical and inspiring introductory guide to being a good trustee.

This guide was designed to help us understand who trustees are, why become one, how one could contribute, the benefits of being a trustee and what is expected. It includes practical questions for trustees to ask at trustee meetings, it explains the basics of good governance and where to go to find more information and trustee opportunities.

This guide was produced by Coalition for Efficiency and Getting on Board. Organisations and individuals are invited to use and share the guide with others with others.

The 2-page version contains the same information and is designed for printing and the longer Trustee Guide is designed for online viewing.
