January 2017

2016 was a year of creation and learning for ESCCO.

  • ESCCO worked with over 20 nonprofits.
  • Funding from the Inasmuch Foundation created a Strategic Partnership model that will provide analysis to nonprofits working in like areas and help them find common ground and maximize limited resources.
  • Funding from the Merrick and Kerr Foundations will develop a process to facilitate nonprofit realignment, where needed.
  • The Oklahoma City Community Foundation hosted a luncheon where ESCCO presented its Organizational Focus Workshop information to 40 nonprofit executives.
  • ESCCO successfully instituted a donor management system and identified issues that other nonprofits should consider as they implement a donor management system. This was shared at a free workshop and ESCCO assisted several nonprofits in their implementations.
  • ESCCO commissioned the OCU nonprofit graduate program to conduct a marketing survey. According to the report, the agencies with which ESCCO has worked closely have a very high regard for the organization and the way it is being run. The report encouraged ESCCO to continue to create services that are unique and not duplicated by other organizations.
  • ESCCO hosted the ESC US national conference. Representatives from across the country came to OKC to share ideas on the best ways to improve nonprofit management. ESCCO’s new Organizational Focus Workshop was very well received and several ESC affiliates are working to implement it in their community. Paul Moore, ESCCO President, continues to serve ESC US as secretary of the board.
  • A sign of the times: ESCCO had fewer nonprofit clients who were able to pay even a minimum fee for ESCCO services. Most took advantage of underwriting by local funders, which made such support even more vital to ESCCO success.
  • ESCCO is proud of its reputation for giving quality service and is committed to keeping its standards high in 2017.
