It’s been quite a few years now that Plank has had an unofficial policy of taking on an annual Pro-Bono project. When we run into a cause that the team feels passionate about we are happy to get involved to make a difference. From non-profits, to filmmakers to musicians we have offered our time for projects that we felt were important and that we knew we could have a major impact on.
This year, we’ve decided to go a bit more official with our yearly pro-bono project and rather than wait for something to stumble into our laps, ask you, the internet:
“Are you an organization, artist or non-profit looking to do something important online and want to work with a great team? If you do, please let us know.”
If that sounds like you then please submit a short letter (one page will do) explaining what the project is about, what you want to do online and why you think you could benefit from our expertise.
What kind of projects should be submitted?
I’ll be honest and say the selection criteria for what we are going to take on is completely subjective. We are going to choose something that excites us. We are going choose a project that we can succeed at. We are going to take on a project that has definitive goals.
We are taking applications starting immediately and will be closing off submissions September 15th. We will then select the project within the following 2 weeks, set up a meeting with the selected team and hopefully come to an agreement and tell all of you about it by October 1st, 2010.
Are you interested? If so, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading “Pro-Bono 2010”. We promise to read over all applications carefully and hope to be back in touch with all or most of you directly.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
