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 decided a business brain trust existed in Central Oklahoma throughout the corporate, civic and academic worlds that, if tapped, could greatly serve the nonprofit community.

We provide value to many different types of nonprofit organizations, including schools and government entities.

Many of ESCCO consultants are retired and have a more flexible schedule to share their vast experiences with organizations that seek to make our community a better place for all. Some are not retired and, together, offer their time to “pay it forward.”

We are proud that we have helped over 120 clients, including organizations such as 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.
