NANOE’s Secrets Revealed by Louis Fawcett

Secret To NANOE

Secret to NANOE Rise was revealed by Louis Fawcett bringing NANOE Members to a standing ovation during their Biennial Convention and Expo insisting that they no longer stand for the craziness of nonprofit dysfunction. Louis challenged charitable executives to stop going to staff meetings, end useless board gatherings, fire unqualified executive directors and quit their job if being underpaid. He demanded that nonprofit leaders no longer hide behind the piety of “mission” and instead go and get the cash they need to achieve significant impact.

Fawcett explained, that National Association of Nonprofit Organizations & Executives (NANOE) are a scandal to the elites of the nonprofit establishment because we dare to question their authority. Our Founder, Jimmy LaRose has been slaughtering charity’s sacred cows for decades. He’s had the audacity to thwart their attempts to govern the nonprofit sector with broken models, arrogant piety and ever-increasing rules and regulations. Why? Because he was willing to question the establishment!

NANOE is accused of hubris. This is comical because it is precisely the hubris of the establishment we are questioning. They fly above reality and look down on those who are working hard every day for small and medium nonprofits. They pass down rules and regulations from on high because they presume to know what’s best for you. They don’t trust you to lead your organizations and they don’t believe you can determine what is best for your communities. Because the establishment has been unquestioned for so long, they fly too close to the sun. Yet, this is not the first time we have watched this story unfold.

Secret to NANOE Rise was written by Reverend Louis Fawcett, who holds a BA from Randolph-Macon College and two Master Degrees from Wake Forest University and Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary. He was privileged to Pastor three Lutheran congregations in Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina. His service to the charitable sector began with his work at Christian World Foundation where he raised support for orphans in China, Russia and Ethiopia. During the 2008 recession, Louis led a successful campaign to build a children’s home in Ethiopia. Following the 2010 earthquake, Louis transitioned to Haiti Children, a charity serving destitute families and children in that island nation. In 2013, Louis accepted the position of Senior Vice President of Principal Gifts at EdVenture Children’s Museum where he forged collaborations with under-resourced communities throughout South Carolina. He has served Central South Carolina Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) for seven years as both board member and president. He was honored in 2016 as AFP’s Outstanding Fundraising Professional.
