We’ve updated the way we calculate the short-term dollar value that each of Catchafire’s engagements provide to reflect the following:
- An hourly rate and estimated hours that more accurately reflect the skills of and time donated by our pro bono professionals
- An estimated and validated cost for project scoping
- An estimated and validated cost for talent sourcing
As a result, we’ve seen an average increase in dollar value of 55% for projects and 79% for phone calls. We believe this new methodology better reflects the true value that pro bono professionals provide — and organizations receive — when getting work done through Catchafire.
Shout out to the following Catchafire team members for making this happen: Kathy Brady (COO), Nava Friedman (Product Manager), José Peñarrieta (Software Engineer), Madhumitha Nagarajan (Quality Assurance Lead), and Ed Urgola (Head of Platform).
