The National Council of Nonprofits has taken a back seat to the ever expanding National Association of Nonprofit Organizations & Executives (NANOE) who is fast becoming the Nation’s largest network of charitable organizations. NANOE, now in its eighteen month of service, has grown to 873 agencies making it twenty-times larger than the National Council of Nonprofits (NCP) whose 41 members are State Nonprofit Associations a majority of whom NANOE has also surpassed in size. (It should be noted that National Council of Nonprofits repeatedly violates their own ethical codes by inflating their membership count to include the nonprofits associated with their 41 paid organizations as actual NCP members even though when polled most have never heard of NCP.)
When asked how NANOE has ended up outpacing their competition co-founder Jimmy LaRose responds, “It’s a contrast in values. We’re about growth. They’re about rules. We’re about scale. They’re about regulations. If you’re stealing from your donors get your CFRE (Certified Fund Raising Executive) they’ll teach you how to stop embezzling. If you’re unkind to others and don’t respect your fellow man join Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) they’ll train you to be diverse. If you’ve bought into the hoax that you need better board members join your State Association they’ve got a webinar for you that hasn’t worked in decades. But if you need money…if you really need to increase your financial capacity…join NANOE. The funding our members receive will take your breath away.”
It is widely acknowledged that 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 the present state of 501(c)3 organizations.
When asked about NANOE’s newly released Values Statement, LaRose’s demeanor softens, “Dr. Robinson‘s Values Statement gives nonprofit’s what they need most…FREEDOM. Freedom to use the principles we already know work in the for-profit sector. The modern charitable CEO has rejected the tired, outdated “ethical codes” and “best practices” of old. NANOE’s Values Statement transcends the status quo. They’re what I believe. They’re what our members crave most.”
Here’s NANOE’s 2017 Values Statement as adopted by their Board of Directors:
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.
Here’s how NANOE members serve one another:
1. We connect philanthropists, funders and academics to people that transform the world;
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;
Our values are OUR MINDSET:
Our values are OUR METHOD:
Our values are OUR MANNER:
Our values are OUR MEMBERS:
Our values are OUR MODIFICATIONS:
Our values are OUR METRICS:
In closing, NANOE is a fellowship of individuals 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.
