NANOE’s Board of Governors Convention & Expo – Virtual Event April 20-21, 2021

NANOE's Board of Governors Convention

NANOE’s Board of Governors Convention & Expo will be hosted Nationwide as a live virtual event on April 20-21, 2021. NANOE and their 2,100 members have poignantly asked the question, “Is Charity Broken for Good?” This group of charitable leaders, named National Association of Nonprofit Organizations and Executives (NANOE), have determined that high-performing nonprofit leaders are entirely frustrated with the dysfunction of nonprofits.

NANOE points to the myriad of charitable legislation, tax laws, industry standards, outdated philosophies, organizational structures, and practices that have STOPPED SECTOR GROWTH on all fronts. In the face of this downturn they also note that governments, philanthropic communities and civil society demands more performance from charities to effectively tackle a host of social, health and environmental issues. In their final analysis NANOE Members determined that industry standards have not changed to meet the needs of the 21st century.

NANOE Co-Founder & Board Chairman, Bishop Redfern II, declared, “What you’ve been taught about charity is wrong and NANOE has the answers to make you whole again!” He went on to say, “NANOE Members are the innovators and critical thinkers THAT WILL CHANGE NONPROFIT MANAGEMENT FOREVER!” With laughter and inspiration Redfern promised, “the only way to change others is to first change ourselves.”

Why the controversy? Needless to say NANOE’s co-founders have taken a lot of heat for defying the nonprofit establishment and calling out charity’s ivory tower elites. Their mission to re-examine how we organize nonprofits, what roles and responsibilities boards and staff have, and what populations really exist for the various kinds services have been met with contempt by industry pundits.

NANOE has proven that charity has fallen far short of impacting the major social and environmental ills it was designed to address. There is more hunger, homelessness, mental illness, substance abuse, poverty than ever before. Yet, the majority of charities settle for reaching a few related to a cause, while neglecting the organization they require to ensure their impact makes a significant difference in their community, county, state or nation. (It’s like the English speaker who goes to another country and thinks they will be better understood, if they speak louder, and say the same words over and over again, but slower!)

Here’s what NANOE is discovered. There has been little or no change in charity’s philosophy or approach in over two centuries. Simply put, the structures created in the late 1700s are still present today. (including the notion of a board of directors.) Nonprofit administrators are strapped with outdated roles and responsibilities, archaic approaches to revenue growth and flawed systems that have only failed them. The power and status issues inherent in a contributed dollar model stops the sector from delivering what is truly needed to eradicate (not just treat) social and environmental issues.

When asked how NANOE is growing at such a rapid rate co-founder Jimmy LaRose responds, “It’s a simple contrast in values. We’re about growth. Our competition is fundamentally all 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.”

When asked about NANOE’s Values Statement, LaRose’s demeanor softens, “It’s what nonprofit’s need most. The modern CEO has rejected the tired, outdated “ethical codes” of old. NANOE’s Values Statement transcends the status quo. The words ‘GRACE, BEAUTY and INSPIRATION” describe the import of each idea expressed. They’re based on empirical research. They’re what I believe. They’re what our members crave most.”

What has been NANOE’s response to these issues?

NANOE co-founder, Kathleen Robinson, has defied industry convention by releasing NEW GUIDELINES FOR NONPROFITS to address the ways charity needs to change. Dr. Robinson spent five years hosting hundreds of meetings with charitable practitioners, policy makers, academics and industry leaders producing an 1,100 page treatise that will challenge everything you believe about nonprofit management. Kathleen is fond of sharing, “New Guidelines for Nonprofits is for high-performing leaders who want to free themselves from the restraints imposed by the the charitable establishment while adhering to principles of moral agency, stewardship, freedom of speech, freedom of peaceful assembly, ethical practice, and transparency.”

When asked about NANOE’s newly released Values Statement, LaRose’s demeanor softens, “It’s what nonprofit’s need most. The modern CEO has rejected the tired, outdated “ethical codes” of old. NANOE’s Values Statement transcends the status quo. The words ‘GRACE, BEAUTY and INSPIRATION” describe the import of each idea expressed. They’re based on empirical research. They’re what I believe. They’re what our members crave most.”

NANOE members believe that if they don’t change things now the best and brightest will not stay in or join the sector. Charity will continue to limp along, not meeting society’s needs, or ever have a chance to truly eradicate the social and environmental issues we face today or project facing in the future. It’s time to re-think how we have to organize, lead and manage ourselves. It’s time to address whether the nonprofit sector really wants to re-define its role and purpose in society (perhaps even its tax status.) It is in this spirit that NANOE has produced NEW GUIDELINES FOR NONPROFITS for further debate and discussion. NANOE offers them as the BEGINNING of dialog, not the end.

So what is the NANOE Controversy? What’s really going on here? Why all the heat?

Because NANOE has gotten it right!

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.
