How Pro Bono Works at Netsuite
The Pro Bono Volunteer Program enables nonprofits and social enterprises to maximize their use of NetSuite’s technologies with free capacity-building projects from NetSuite experts. As a recipient of a NetSuite software donation you can apply for pro bono projects every quarter.
Please Note: The SuiteVolunteers program should not be a replacement for services you would otherwise pay for. While are volunteers are generally well-trained, they are volunteering their time to complete a specific project.
Product Donations & Pro Bono Playbook
Tech companies making software product donations to social change organizations have generated billions of dollars in savings for nonprofits. These donating companies have robust training, customer service, and implementation support for their paying clients, but what happens to their social sector clients? The Product Donations + Pro Bono Playbook, developed in partnership with Taproot Foundation, guides companies to offer that same level of support to donation recipients in the social sector. When social change organizations receive pro bono support in concert with their product donation, they can successfully implement and use donated products to help achieve their mission.

What to Expect as an Organization
Applications are accepted on a quarterly basis in January, April, and July. Projects are completed during a quarter:
- Q1: January to March
- Q2: April to June
- Q3: July to September
A point of contact from your organization should plan to dedicate 20-30 hours during the quarter. Projects have a higher probability of success when both the organization and volunteers are highly engaged.
