What is PMDoS?
Created in 2014, the Project Management Day of Service (PMDoS) started out as a one-day community service event in a single location in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. PMDoS events provide nonprofits with pro bono (free, professional) project management services to help them address their most difficult challenges. We do this by bringing together local project managers
(PMs) with nonprofits who are working hard to serve their communities. The PMs help the nonprofits to scope and plan projects that allow the nonprofits to do more to serve their communities. In the DC region, we typically serve more than 40 nonprofits with a team of more than 200 PM volunteers at our annual PMDoS, and we also offer ongoing support throughout the year.
Since 2014, PMDoS events have been launched at locations across the U.S. and around the world including: Hampton Roads, Virginia; New York City; Atlanta, Georgia; San Francisco, California; Brisbane, Australia; and Warsaw, Poland. Planning is currently in progress at more locations including Spain and Canada.
