Latin: de bono

English translation: literally means: "From goodness"

Latin term or phrase: Latin: de bono
We have a phrase in Latin that appears in a business letter, "de bono" and the source confirms that it is not a mistype of "pro bono" or at no charge.

The DE>EN translated phrase in the letter is: "We have provided services not as volunteers, but DE BONO."

Can anyone help to clarify the possible meanings of this term in this context?

Thank you very much!
