Aaron Hurst, President and Founder, Taproot Foundation
Recipient of INFORUM’s 21st Century Visionary Award
Aaron Hurst, recognized by Fast Company as a 2006 Rising Star—“a social entrepreneur with extraordinary potential,” founded the Taproot Foundation to break down the barriers between the nonprofit and corporate sectors in the US. Inspired by the work of Hurst’s grandfather Joseph E. Slater, author of the original blueprint for the Peace Corps, Taproot is allowing business professionals to volunteer their skills in the nonprofit sector, thus strengthening our community. Come here how Taproot is reshaping the relationship between these two sectors and redefining volunteering as we know it today.
