Pro Bono Options

Brought to you by: Capital Impact Partners’ The Answer Key


Some charter schools may seek pro bono arrangement with a current or former board member, or other friend of the charter school for certain consultations (e.g., legal counsel, architects). This approach can work and will save you money. However, it also presents downsides. Legal counsel that provides services on a volunteer basis may prioritize a paying client at a crucial point in your negotiations. With formally hired professionals, you can better control the quality and pace of their work.
