pro bono services

Not-for-profits have a positive impact in our communities. In an effort to further strengthen the not-for-profit sector, Health in Common is providing pro bono planning and evaluation services. Pro bono services can include facilitating stakeholder engagement, developing a strategic plan or evaluating an initiative.

Initiatives with services valued between $5,000 and $20,000 with a realistic plan to implement (within one year or less) will be considered. Government departments, individuals, political activities and exclusively religious initiatives are not eligible.

eligibility requirements

Health in Common’s pro bono planning and evaluation services are intended for not-for-profits that cannot afford fee-for-service. To be eligible for Health in Common’s pro bono services, your organization must meet the following requirements:


Non-Profit Incorporation/Charitable Registration

Your organization is incorporated as a non-profit organization or registered as a charity in Canada.


Annual Budget Under $2 Million

Your organization’s budget must be $2 million or less. Organizations with an operating budget under $2 million that are part of a larger organization (e.g. hospital/university) with a budget over $2 million are not eligible.


Human Resource Capacity

Your organization must have a Board of Directors and staff/volunteers with the capacity to implement the recommendations or plan resulting from the services provided.


Manitoba Operations

Your organization must operate locally within Manitoba and benefit Manitobans.


Twelve-Month Project Timeline

Your organization must have a project that can be completed in twelve months. While there is an opportunity to engage Health in Common again, we generally advise clients to re-apply after recommendations or plans from the prior engagement have been implemented.


Project Expenses

Your project must not require Health in Common or its volunteers to incur expenses. This excludes general expenses associated with commuting within Winnipeg.


Engagement Evaluation

Your organization must be committed to a pre- and post-engagement evaluation process, including completing a capacity building assessment and participating in follow-up meetings with Health in Common leadership to discuss project success.

If your organization meets the above eligibility criteria, please review our Client Selection Process and Timeline before applying. If you have questions about your organization’s eligibility, please get in touch with Cathy Steven at
