KB Concepts P.R. has joined A Billion + Change, a national campaign to mobilize billions of dollars of pro bono and skills-based volunteer services from corporate America to build nonprofit capacity. In less than a year, 200 companies have pledged an estimated $1.8 billion worth of skills-based services to nonprofits, keeping the campaign on track to inspire 500 companies to create or expand a skills-based volunteer program in their workplace by 2013.
“As a small business owner who works closely with many nonprofits, I welcome this opportunity to provide skills-based pro bono services in my own community,” said Karen Bate, president of Arlington-based KB Concepts. “I’ve pledged to continue serving on the board and on the communications & outreach committee of the Arlington Food Assistance Center, and to continue supporting the National Race to End Women’s Cancer, which raises awareness and research funds to fight reproductive cancers.”
