Bishop Redfern II | NANOE Chair
NANOE is The Answer to Everything

Why is NANOE the answer to everything? Because we’re a nationwide network of donors, volunteers and charitable leaders whose relentless commitment to significant and sustainable impact transforms the communities we serve. Bishop Redfern II declares, “NANOE members are innovators who solve problems by deploying heroic missions of scale that confront dilemmas so completely that money chases after their every need. We are a fellowship of social engineers who believe that ‘innovation never fears a challenge’ and that the greatest contribution donors, volunteers and practitioners can make to charity is to become the creative, thinking enterprise-leaders our sector so desperately needs.” Join us for this session to get the inside story on why NANOE is the fastest growing charity network in the world.

Jimmy LaRose | NANOE Co-Founder
Money is More Important Than Mission

Jimmy LaRose knows that financial capacity-building is the key to charitable impact. “It’s a simple matter of the order of things. If you want to take your nonprofit mission to scale then YOU HAVE TO PRIORITIZE MONEY FIRST.” If you want to ‘solve’ problems instead of just ‘servicing’ them you must create an ever expanding flow of cash. Remember Logan Smith’s famous quote, ‘There are few sorrows, however poignant, in which a good income is of no avail.” Money is oxygen. Without it, charities asphyxiate, atrophy and fail. The healthy flow of lots of cash (air) allows a nonprofit to flourish and, in turn, realize its important mission in ways never dreamed possible.” Join us for this session to learn how to receive big money gifts in our new virtual world.

System Shock: Nonprofit Management Cultures That Supercharge Your Mission

Do you really believe in your mission? Your initial response is, “Why yes, of course!” But do you REALLY believe in your organization’s mission? Are you spending 99% of your time on program service delivery and management? Are you frustrated with your Board? Are you resentful that you have to ask people for money? Are you tired of grant reports, newsletters, fundraisers and social media posts which yield nothing? Are you trying to implement “best practices” and hoping for the best? Here’s the bottom line: if you really believe in your mission, you will run a bulldozer through your calendar, stop making excuses, stop hoping for consensus and start spending a majority of your week on monetizing your mission to make a bigger impact in your community. This session will give you the liberty you need to claim the authority you’ve earned to make your mission a reality.

Honnie Korngold | CineVantage Productions
Broken for Good: The Way Charity Works in The USA

Honnie Korngold is the founder of CineVantage Productions in Hollywood California and is the Award-Winning Producer of the new documentary film Broken for Good: How Charity Works in the United States of America. Hailed as both provocative and uplifting Broken for Good uses an “emperor has no clothes” approach to confront the “crazy-making” that’s paralyzed the charitable sector for the past fifty years. Relying on humor and vivid story-telling, this film takes viewers on a wild ride into the upside down world of nonprofit management by “challenging the existing order of things.” This feature length documentary film is in its fourth year of production and is slated for release in Fall 2022. BROKEN FOR GOOD will demonstrate the reasons why charities have failed to embrace the free market enterprise principles we know work in the for-profit sector and can guarantee significant charitable impact.

Charlotte Berry | NANOE Event Host
100 Years of Giving: My Past, Present & Future

Now in her 90th year, Charlotte Lunsford Berry has spent a lifetime championing the displaced, disenfranchised and disaffected. She’s has traveled the world as the National Chairwoman of Volunteers of the American Red Cross, supervising and planning activities for 1.8 million volunteers. She is a passionate volunteer and one of her most rewarding experiences has been getting people involved in philanthropy for the first time. She finds joy in helping others find the right fit for what they have to offer, from volunteer work to a new job with a nonprofit organization or a board position they hadn’t previously considered. Join Charlotte to learn how real donors feel about making charitable gifts. She strongly believes that everyone should experience what it feels like to give back. What are her words to live by? “Do something every day to feel good.”

Scott Haumersen | Wegner CPAs
Faith In Numbers: What is a Financially Strong Nonprofit?

What do the numbers tell us, can you trust them and do they predict your future? Every director of a nonprofit would like to have a large endowment, reserve cash in the bank, and a surplus at the end of every year. Unfortunately, most of us know that this might be a dream instead of reality. Without numbers how can you know if your organization is financially healthy? Learn Scott’s seven guiding principles that can help you understand your organization’s future. Take these back to your organization to do your own self-assessment of just what your financial forecast might be, and how you can change it.

Susan J. Radford | NANOE Member
NANOE’s 2021 Best Practice Philanthropist of the Year

After a thorough and significant review of several nominated donors and family foundations NANOE’s Board of Directors has named Susan J. Radford as the 2021 recipient of the Charlotte Berry Best Practice Philanthropist Medallion. This commendation is not bestowed based on to whom a person gives, nor the number of gifts made, or even the generous amounts shared, but rather it is awarded because of the WAY a person gives when they invest in a charity. In the tradition of the Charlotte Berry, Susan Radford’s record of underwriting administrative infrastructures that foster enterprise growth is unparalleled among NANOE's membership. Susan’s philanthropy and service, combined with her commit to NANOE’s mission to “transform the charitable sector” truly makes her NANOE’s 2021 Best Practice Philanthropist of the Year. To put it plainly, when Susan gives charity grows

Luke Slater | Rogers-Slater Foundation
Dynastic Giving: What Happens When We Invest Our Families Wealth

Luke is a third-generation philanthropist and is the first DYNASTIC DONOR in his family. Both his parents and grandparents demonstrated that philanthropy is an effective tool in keeping new family leaders engaged and involved in their businesses ensuring the future transfer of personal wealth. For Luke and the Rogers-Slater Foundation the need for “giving back” has grown beyond just a charitable donation into focused multi-generational philanthropy mobilizing brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers behind a common cause. Simply put, the Rogers-Slater Foundation has discovered that philanthropy is an ideal way to strengthen family ties and foster continuity among generations.

Hall Powell | Development Systems International
Significant Impact: Fifty Years of Nonprofit Consulting

There is a common misconception in the charitable world that working with nonprofit organizations means that there are no profits to be had for consultants, and you may feel the same way. Perhaps you have seen an opportunity to fill a need in your industry but are hesitant because it doesn’t seem possible to get the value you are seeking. Too many nonprofit consultants avoid working for this very reason, but we know Hall Powell will change your mind. Hall started his consulting career decades ago with the Ketcham Company and has served hundreds of nonprofit organizations around the world. Hall will share five essential ideas on how you, too, can create a thriving, successful consulting business.

Raynia McGee | First Presbyterian Counseling Center
The Psychology of Nonprofit Management: How Are You Feeling Today?

Dr. McGee will discuss how to engage with your organization’s staff and leadership in ways which build an emotionally healthy and productive team. This presentation will provide key actions you can take to bolster your personal and your nonprofit's wellbeing so that you are satisfied with your life, want to show up at work, intently pursue your dreams, and are supported in your efforts to succeed. Stop feeling inadequate and ill-equipped to weather personal and organizational storms. Learn how to be empowered, learn to bounce back effectively. Learned to act innovatively, thoughtfully, strategically during chaos and hard times.

Staff Ideology & Conflict…Reconciling Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X and Beyond

When the staff delivering on your mission is communicating unrest, discomfort or disengagement, the result is that the board loses confidence in their ability to deliver on the mission. The “Generation Gap” feels insurmountable. It shows up as employee disengagement, Board Member dissonance, the inability to deliver properly on strategic plans, messaging, and ultimately fundraising. Without aligning the staff’s passion and performance with the board’s vision and direction, and without a clear story that everyone can see a place for themselves within, performance of any 501c3 will have a difficult time succeeding. The leadership team inevitably finds themselves caught between multiple generations – and lines drawn in the sand – on almost every point in management and delivery. The answer: Reconcile the gap. This session will deconstruct the divergent generational perspectives and share actionable strategies on how to find the common ground necessary to elevate team performance with aligned focus on your mission.

Raising Millions During Covid-19

Outside of Charlotte’s gleaming skyscrapers, beyond Bank of America Stadium, and past the white affluence of Plaza Midwood, there is a neighborhood, J.T. Williams, that sits within city limits, though not often within view of city residents. The median income in J.T. Williams, which is 90% black, hovers around $20,000, and, until recently, crimes per week clocked in at an average of 5.6. Lemon cars, lacking hubcaps and fenders, trundle down pothole-pocked roads, faces peer from locked windows, and young boys toss around footballs in the unlined fields in front of Turning Point Academy, a K-12 learning institution for students with behavioral problems. Join us during this session to learn how we’ve raised millions using MAJOR GIFTS RAMP-UP during COVID-19.

Capitalism: History’s Gift to Philanthropy

Philanthropy had its beginnings in Medieval Europe but Capitalism, as we know it, did not emerge until the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Given that philanthropy depends primarily on gifts of wealth (money and investment assets) the explosive economic growth – the creation of new wealth -- that capitalism (free market) brought to the table enabled the expansion of the philanthropic sector to its present form where it constitutes approximately 10% of Gross Domestic Product. In the current climate philanthropy is generally regarded as morally “good,” capitalism as morally bad, with government as arbiter between the two. In this session I will provide a quick overview of the history of the relationship between philanthropy and capitalism and offer a robust defense of capitalism -- especially as it relates to the philanthropic sector – with primary emphasis on the fact that wealth creation is not a zero-sum game and that money is a societal good per se.
