This past July (amid controversy fueled by the online magazine Nonprofit Quarterly) the newly formed, Washington, D.C. based, National Association of Nonprofit Organizations & Executives (NANOE) successfully launched a nationwide campaign to build its 2017 Board of Governors.

Nominations were overseen by Philanthropist Charlotte Lunsford Berry and Professor Kathleen Wilson Robinson. To-date over 1,100 leaders accepted the charge to establish, organize and confirm a new set of governing guidelines that supercharge nonprofit capacity-building.

Governors will review, expand and/or redact 60 new key practices revealed in NANOE’s New Guidelines for Tomorrow’s Nonprofit ensuring a new set of competencies emerge that increase charitable impact. NANOE intends to convene 1,000 Governors in Columbia, SC on March 7-8, 2017 for their Board of Governors Capacity Building Convention & Expo. Jimmy LaRose, Dan Pallotta, Honnie Korngold and Kathleen Robinson will be the featured guest speakers.

NANOE was conceived in 2011, when a national group of researchers and practitioners began the arduous task of producing a new set of core competencies that would super-charge nonprofit capacity-building. They agreed that a Board of Governors comprised of a vast array of donors, practitioners, consultants, vendors, nonprofit staff and administrators would be established via a 501(c)3 membership organization to organize and confirm a first working draft of these new key practices.

NANOE’s working group spent a full year compiling a list of prospective Governors. Nominations were suggested by members of AFP, CFRE, AHP, ASAE, CASE, United Way, National Development Institute, Nonprofit Associations, Industry Associations, and other community leaders. Though most nominations were submitted by individuals many were submitted to the Nominations Committee by the working group who had identified nonprofit leaders via online research.

Innovation never fears a challenge

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.

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.

Charity has been paralyzed by a set of failed “best practices” that turned the Non-Profit Sector into a Non-Growth Sector decades ago. Present day systems were established in the late 1950’s by industry associations that knowingly persist in methodologies detrimental to the general public. Einstein’s well-known axiom, “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them” accurately informs our present state.

NANOE, a 501(c)3 corporation and its Board of Governors have 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 designed for nonprofit leaders who have a passion to grow their mission. NANOE Practitioners, Organizations & Enterprise Members are eligible to receive the following credentials and/or certifications:
