compass pro bono

@ Chicago

Compass Pro Bono launched in Chicago, our third city, in 2016 thanks to the efforts of a long standing DC Board Member with strong Chicago roots. Each year we have expanded our programming and our footprint – connecting nonprofit leaders and business professionals who together empower thriving, equitable communities. Join us as we continue to grow our impact in Chicago.

real stories, real impact

  • “Compass is such a uniquely valuable experience because it allows you to strengthen your professional skills and connect with incredible individuals all while giving back to your local community.”

  • “My experience with Compass allowed me to better understand the challenges faced by non-profits in today’s ever changing and dynamic environment. I got the opportunity to work with the Executive Director and Board Chair on coming up with solutions to their challenges.”

  • “The Compass team provided invaluable assistance to our strategic planning process. Their “heavy lift“ allowed our staff to focus on our mission. I would not hesitate to recommend their engagement to my colleagues.”
