What is Laurels

Laurels is an employee engagement platform for pro bono work. We bring the nonprofits and the platform so your team can build a habit — and track record — of giving back.

How do teams use Laurels?

Marketing and creative teams use Laurels to work together online (typically in monthly 2-hour sessions) to support compelling nonprofits. It's a complete solution for building a pro bono program that teams respect and look forward to.
