2014 InKIND Consulting Program

Are you a non-profit looking to create a social venture? Streamline finances and accounting practices? Apply the latest IT technology to help you better meet your mission? Create a marketing campaign for a specific audience?

UIC’s InKind consulting program wants to work with you on projects like this for free!

The UIC Liautaud Graduate School of Business (LGSB) MBA Association and InKind consulting program are seeking applications from Chicago area non-profit organizations that are interested in receiving pro bono consulting services from LGSB students.

Piloted in 2012, InKind teams have consulted with four different organizations on network security solutions, implementing a new social venture, creating a marketing plan, and assessing the feasibility of a fundraising database. Read about the final deliverables in 2012 here.

LGSB students are ready to help your organization in a variety of capacities. Students possess expertise in marketing, organizational development, research, finance, accounting, IT, information systems, and feasibility studies, among other expertise.

The projects will begin in early October 2014 and end with a final presentation to key staff or board members in January 2015 (depending on scopes and schedules).

Non-profit applications are due September 19, 2014 and the application can be found here. If you have any additional questions, please email lgsbmbaa@uic.edu.
