BANC impact through May 2022: 32 projects completed, 173 consultants, 17,992 hours of consulting provided, $3.5 million value of consulting services

BANC supports Chicago-based nonprofits with pro bono strategy, planning and advisory services delivered by Booth alumni.  Our projects tap into Booth strengths: strategic thinking, analytical, management, planning and leadership skills.

“Nonprofit organizations are notoriously under-resourced. The BANC team assisted our organization in providing our stakeholders with mission-impact indicators in a clear, consistent and concise way. Without access to their talent, this project would still be on our wish list."

- Karen Hartman, Vice President and CFO, Prevent Blindness

Projects for current clients started in April 2022 and will be completed by October 2022.

Project Information:  
  • Projects last about 6 months from when work begins
  • BANC typically serves 5-7 nonprofit clients during each cycle.  Currently, nonprofit clients must be based in the Chicago area and preference will be given to Chicago area alumni.  We will be looking into expanding to other cities in the future.
  • Alumni are matched to projects based on their interests and the skills needed for each project. 
  • Unfortunately, due to high demand not all nonprofits or alumni who apply can be selected.  We do maintain pipelines of both potential clients and consultants so we look forward to staying in touch to make you aware of future opportunities as they become available.
