Since 2013, New Profit has collaborated with Deloitte Consulting LLC to do something rare and extraordinarily valuable in the nonprofit sector: provide nonprofits and other social impact organizations with the caliber of strategic support that Fortune 500 companies can access to build and scale their companies and products.

Our goal together has always been to help innovative ideas, leaders, and organizations break through and change lives, communities, and systems at scale. Our collaboration is built on an incredible platform of shared passion for social impact and commitment to the leaders and staff that are on the front lines of social change across America.

Today, as #ProBonoWeek comes to a close and on behalf of our community of changemakers, we want to say, "THANK YOU, DELOITTE!"

Thank you for the staff time, the resources, the expertise, and for being there for us. Thank you, Steven Jennings and Michael Canning, for your leadership and stewardship on New Profit's Board of Directors.
