2023 Pro Bono Search Manitoba || Request for Proposals



In 2022 Summit Search Group launched our 1st annual Pro Bono Executive Search initiative for nonprofit organizations in Manitoba in support of identifying a new senior professional to help advance their mission.  In July of 2022, Summit Search Group partnered with 1Just City on their search for their new Executive Director.

Working together to bring about positive change, we donate our time and talents to those organizations in greatest need. We are proud to offer our services free of charge to charities and community organizations undergoing a leadership change.
