Our Impact

PennPAC has had a significant impact on the nonprofit community, providing over 45,000 hours of service, mobilizing over 1,500 volunteers and engaging with 175 nonprofit organizations. To date, we have provided roughly $8 million dollars of pro bono consulting services. Our projects improve the efficiency of nonprofits and increase the impact on the lives they support and enrich.

PennPAC’s impact also extends to our volunteers. Through the “Power of PennPAC,” our volunteers have been able to strengthen their leadership skills, pursue new career paths, get more involved with nonprofits and expand their networks.
