@ 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.
