ESCCO Mission

Mission

To provide professional volunteer management consulting and support services to nonprofit organizations, schools, and government agencies.

Background

ESCCO (Executive Service Corps of Central Oklahoma) was founded in 1995 by visionary leaders who knew a business brain trust existed in Central Oklahoma throughout the corporate, civic and academic worlds that, if tapped, would greatly serve the nonprofit community.

In our 20 + years, ESCCO has helped over 120 clients, including the OKC Boathouse Foundation, Jesus House, and the OKC Ballet, among others. Some of the projects covered board development, volunteer management, marketing planning, finance, human resources and business management.

ESCCO Services

Clinics:  2018 has brought new challenges to nonprofits. Thus, ESCCO is offering one-on-one, two hour clinics to our nonprofit colleagues that can: provide insight on a specific topic, produce guidance and validation on planned changes, and generate new ideas.

Executive Director Coaching Program: designed specifically for Executive Directors to fine tune their managerial skills by working with a seasoned nonprofit professional who can provide an outside perspective. Current and retired nonprofit executive directors are available to mentor.

Management Review: delivers a comprehensive, independent, examination of a nonprofit organization. Designed to make actionable recommendations to improve the overall effectiveness of the organization, this is ESCCO’s traditional service.

Nonprofit Structural Change: to facilitate conversations about potential affiliations between nonprofits, and if these prove fruitful, to assure a smooth transition that creates a stronger, more efficient delivery of services. 

Organizational Coach:  An ESCCO consultant providing assistance to the organization’s executive director, board and staff on a variety of issues such as governance, finances, service provision, structure, board development and others.

Organizational Focus Workshop: a structured, facilitated exercise designed to assist a nonprofit organization (its board, management and key stakeholders) to identify and prioritize the most critical issues the organization faces and to develop an action plan to address them. This service is transforming nonprofits.

Strategic Partnerships: formation of strategic partnerships to address similarities and overlap of services among nonprofits.

Funding

ESCCO’s administrative expenses are funded through individual gifts, corporate gifts, foundation grants and consulting project contracts with nonprofit entities. Since we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, all donations are tax deductible.
