Skills for Cities 2024: Shaping an Equitable Future Through Cross-Sector Collaboration

Common Impact’s signature day of service brings together social sector leaders and cross-company teams of skills-based volunteers to generate solutions to help nonprofits do more good in their communities. Join us virtually on October 24, 2024 at Skills for Cities 2024: Shaping an Equitable Future

October, 24 2024


No one player can solve the complex and intertwining issues that we face today. That’s why Common Impact’s 2024 Skills for Cities is dedicated to shaping an equitable future.

Our signature day of service empowers professionals across sectors to take meaningful action by aligning their talents and expertise for powerful nonprofit capacity building and community impact. On average, nonprofits spend only 2-8% of their budget on essential infrastructure like HR, finance, technology, strategy, and marketing, compared to the 20-30% that companies spend. Building out these core capacities is critical for nonprofits to deliver on their missions.

Creating Solutions

During this day of service, teams of skills-based volunteers from participating companies will bring what they are already good at – business strategy, financial modeling, digital marketing, HR management, operations planning, vendor selection – and join nonprofit leaders to reinforce the capacity of their organizations. Nonprofits will gain new insights and fresh thinking for some of their toughest challenges while volunteers will grow their professional skills and understanding of the nonprofit sector.

Working together, we can bring our individual strengths to bear on the common goal of building safer, stronger, and more equitable communities.
