“Parametric’s support for volunteer time each year has made it so I can give back to my local community in a tangible way, and at an organization whose mission hits close to home: Wellspring Family Services.”

The Strategy Challenge is Morgan Stanley’s flagship pro bono program that brings together our rising talent to help nonprofits solve strategic challenges.

All full-time permanent US employees can apply to receive grants for as many as two nonprofit organizations each year by logging volunteer hours.
