About Laurels

At Laurels, we want to make it easier to give back. So we're building a new kind of online service to make that happen.

Across the US, nonprofits provide critical services to our communities, and often they need skilled help to do more and better work. In the meantime, corporate teams are searching for how to give back with their precious skills β€” how to instill "purpose" in the workplace in a way that's more than window dressing, but still respectful of their day jobs.

In response, Laurels offers an end-to-end platform that makes it possible for teams of skilled professionals to solve actual problems for worthy nonprofits within exciting, workplace-friendly pro bono programs.

If we get this right, we'll unlock a more engaged citizenry and do some good for our communities. We hope you'll join us along the way.

Who we are

We're a small, senior team who have led dozens of marketing teams and built a bunch of marketing-related software. Laurels is the pro bono platform we wish we'd had as professionals.

We want to help teams give back, while also helping to strengthen our society's social safety net via the nonprofits we support.
