Changing the world, one project at a time …
Click here to learn more about the Project Management Day of Service (PMDoS).
PMDoS 2016 was an AMAZING success! Over 300 project managers joined forces with 150 nonprofit leaders to make magic - - one project at a time -- once again!
We were inspired by the powerful words of our dynamic speakers, Navy Federal Credit Union and 2015 PMI PMO of the Year Winner, CIO Bill Hills and SBA Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet.
Project Management for Change and the Taproot Foundation would like to thank to our gracious hosts, the University of Maryland and John Cable and Qingbin Cui of the Project Management Center for Excellence, the 5 DC area PMI Chapters, our hardworking PM volunteers, SMEs and nonprofits, our army of PMDoS Volunteers, and of course, last but certainly not least, our many fabulous sponsors who made it all possible!
Check out the following 3 stories that show the impact of 300 Project Managers and hundreds of volunteer:

Project Management for Change, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, in conjunction with the Taproot Foundation, and the 5 DC metro area PMI chapters (Washington DC, Montgomery County, Silver Spring, Baltimore and Southern Maryland) will once again provide pro bono project management to nonprofit organizations in out community.
Project Management Day of Service (PMDoS™) 2016, the Project Management for Change signature event, is an all-volunteer outreach event providing pro bono Project Management services to nonprofits and social change organizations. This event matches nonprofits with project managers and subject matter experts (in marketing, HR, strategic planning, finance, or technology) to discuss and diagnose a critical challenge and then scope out a project -- for and with the nonprofit -- to overcome the issue.

It is not easy or affordable for most nonprofits and charities to be able to afford project managers who will help them manage their projects to ensure an ideal execution. On MLK day of every year, we ensure that the groups that need project managers have the resources they need to scope out their upcoming projects. We know that nonprofit organizations have a lot to do and may not always have the funding necessary. We are here to help nonprofits do more!
What One Leading Charity Is Saying:
"You know how on any kind of go help someone days” companies go rake leaves to help people?
Not these guys; they want to have a permanent impact. What they are going to do is pick 200 non-profits and then project managers of PMI will help the non-profit execute a project that the non-profit actually needs. How cool is that?!"
Ken Leslie, Founder of VeteransMatter.org
Who We Are.
Project Management for Change a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, jointly with the Taproot Foundation, will provide pro bono project management services to nonprofit organizations in our community.
Who is our Partner?
Taproot Foundation is a nonprofit organization that works to improve society by matching nonprofit organizations in need of pro bono professional services with organizations and individuals that provide those pro bono services.
Many nonprofits and charities struggle to afford project managers to help them manage projects to an ideal execution. On MLK day, we give around 100 groups needing project managers, the resources they need to scope their upcoming projects. These organizations have a lot to do and don’t always have the funding needed. PMDoS helps nonprofits do more!
