    Partnering with nonprofits to support their digital transformation journeys

    • Dell Technologies understands that nonprofit organizations face undisputedly, challenging resource and IT constraints that make it difficult to respond when acute challenges arise — particularly when faced with rapidly shifting social needs and access issues, such as those faced during the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2019, our research found that 96% of nonprofits are experiencing barriers to digital transformation, and 42% of nonprofit leaders fear they’ll be left behind. To help address these challenges, we have committed to partner with 1,000 nonprofit partners by 2030 to support them, pro bono, on their digital transformation journeys.


    • How Does it Work?

      Dell Technologies has developed a portfolio of pro bono programs that connect our talented and diverse employees with nonprofits around the world that are facing barriers to digital transformation. Dell team members can nominate any nonprofit to be invited and apply to participate in our Pro Bono programs.

      Team members may also nominate a nonprofit on behalf of a Dell customer. By partnering with nonprofits to resolve these operational challenges, we can accelerate and amplify the essential work that nonprofits are doing to improve social conditions for the communities in which we work and live.

    • Pro Bono Consulting Workshops

      Pro Bono Consulting Workshops are short-term, skill-based volunteering engagements that match between 15-30 nonprofits with a customized team of 3-6 Dell team members who are experts in the issue the nonprofit is seeking to address.

      • Work collaboratively over an 8-hour intensive workshop
      • Rooted in supporting Digital Transformation
      • Offering support based on technical knowledge and expertise
      • Building technical competencies in every engagement
    • Pro Bono Projects

      Pro Bono Projects are longer-term pro bono consulting projects in which small teams of Dell team members are matched according to their professional skillset to work collaboratively, part-time, with a nonprofit partner over a period of one to six months.

      • Deep and meaningful impact comes first
      • Customer-centered approach to partnership
      • Ensuring sustainability of long-term impact
      • Transparency: sharing learning and tools

    • How have we helped

      Ask anyone who works for a nonprofit, and they’ll tell you that the two things that hold them back the most are time and unrestricted funding to spend on operational costs like staff and technology. Automating processes to free up time to spend on meaningful and important work is a huge benefit for nonprofits. By reducing operational issues with the help of pro bono volunteers, nonprofits can expand their impact and reach.
