NANOE Scandal Louis Fawcett

The NANOE Scandal – Putting Money First – Louis Fawcett

The NANOE Scandal – The National Association of Nonprofit Organizations & Executives (NANOE) is a scandal to the elites of the nonprofit establishment because we dare to question their authority. We have the audacity to thwart their attempts to govern the nonprofit sector with broken models, arrogant piety and ever-increasing rules and regulations. Because we question the establishment, NANOE is accused of hubris. This is comical because it is precisely the hubris of the establishment […]

The NANOE Solution: Finally, Something That Actually Works – Louis Fawcett

We live in a frenetic sound bite culture of 24/7 distractions. Especially in the nonprofit world, there are a multitude of discussion, topics, webinars, feasibility studies, board trainings, conferences, organizations, political issues and books that (while well intentioned) only distract you from growing your organization’s impact. You don’t have to work in our sector for very long to feel overwhelmed and confused. There are days when we wonder if anyone is listening […]

The NANOE Innovation: Is the Nonprofit Sector Anti-Free Market? – Louis Fawcett

For too long, Americans have used the term “nonprofit” in a way that means “against profit.” Let’s be clear: to operate as a nonprofit does not mean operating at a loss each year. Rather, nonprofits sow whatever gains they have back into their missions to change and save lives.  There is nothing wrong with a nonprofit innovating and taking risks for the sake of achieving a heroic mission of scale.  In the […]

The NANOE Experience: Why It’s Unique And All About Our Members – Louis Fawcett

There is no denying this: Starbucks has created an experience for customers that keep us coming back again and again. There are more than 8,000 Starbucks in the U.S. and each location provides the same products and service. Enter any Starbucks and you smell the rich aromas of coffee from all over the world. Order from a barista (not a server or coffee maker) and you are called by name. Sit down […]

OUR MEMBERS ARE OUR MISSION

National Association of Nonprofit Organizations & Executives (NANOE) is a nationwide network of donors, volunteers and charitable leaders whose relentless commitment to significant and sustainable impact transforms the communities we serve. NANOE members are innovators who solve problems (not just service them) by deploying heroic missions of scale that confront social and environmental dilemmas so completely that money chases after their every need.

  1. We connect philanthropists, funders and academics to people that transform their worlds;
  2. We create platforms, programs and tools that supercharge financial capacity building;
  3. We form economic impact engines infusing capital into charities to guarantee mission success;
  4. We confront intellectual dishonesty using mass communications to dispel myths and disseminate truth;
  5. We disrupt industry associations, organizations and media outlets whose activities injure nonprofits;
  6. We build personal relationships with leaders that strengthen them and meet their needs;
  7. We establish compensation standards that safeguard the financial success of those employed in our sector;
  8. We credential executives in advanced management models, capacity-building and consulting;
  9. We research and report on scale, sustainability and significant impact;
  10. We host forums, conferences and events on scale, sustainability and significant impact;

NANOE, a 501(c)3 corporation, has unveiled a new and growing set of capacity-building “best practices” that empower nonprofits in ways previously thought to be impossible. These approved techniques are based on field tested university research and have been peer-reviewed by NANOE Governors during NANOE’s Convention & Expo. They have been designed for leaders who have a passion to grow their mission. For more information on NANOE’s Board of Governors’ Convention & Expo please visit our Events Page.

NANOE is the only nationwide membership organization in the U.S. for executives seeking credentials in the art of nonprofit capacity-building. Practitioners who hold a prestigious NANOE credential are “best practice” experts who grow charitable enterprise and discover new ways to advance the common good. For more information on CNE, CDE & CNE credentialing please visit our Credentials Page.

Ultimately, NANOE members believe that “innovation never fears a challenge” and that the greatest contribution nonprofit practitioners can make to charity is to become the creative enterprise-leaders our sector so desperately needs.
