Pro Bono Economics
Pro Bono Economics matches volunteer professional economists with charities, providing free help to address questions around measurement, results, impact and value. Our aims are:
- To help charities estimate their impact and value for money at a time when evidence of impact is demanded, budgets are reduced, and where charities may lack the expertise to do it themselves.
- To improve the effectiveness of the third sector by helping charities to communicate results, make informed decisions about how to use scarce resources, be more accountable and be able to access funding.
- To add value through sharing the results of our analysis throughout the sector, discussing methods, challenges and learning, to make charities aware of the value of the work of economists and economists aware of what they can contribute.
- To foster a volunteering culture in the economics profession through building links with public sector, private sector and academic economists, and providing a development opportunity for our volunteers.
Our approach is to be as helpful as possible while maintaining high standards of rigour, transparency and consistency. Our independence and the quality of our volunteers makes the analysis we produce credible with charities and funders alike.
