We Aren’t The Nonprofit, We Make the Nonprofit Better! on business processes that include: n Strategic planning n Financial management n Community relations n Board development n Organizational development n Technology strategy & planning We offer these services through low cost consulting services that are predicated on the scope of the work and the capability of the nonprofit to pay.  Many of our clients ask, “Why charge at all for these services?” Our answer is short and simple; we find that a financial commitment to a desired result produces the organizational commitment to stay involved with, and to own, the work. Our goal is to prepare the organization to move forward after our engagement with a minimal amount of assistance from us or other outside agencies.

FRESC has undertaken several engagements to: n Help a client align its business and technology strategies to meet a change in vision and mission n Lead and facilitate a nonprofit board workshop focused on revising mission and strategy, with a follow-on project to build a new strategic business plan n Facilitate a renewal process and strategic plan for a historical organization

Pikes Peak United Way 2-1-1 Thousands of individuals and families search every day for emergency financial assistance, food, shelter and other important needs. Looking for help could mean finding dozens of phone numbers and then searching through a confusing maze of agencies and services. For those who want to give back to the community through volunteerism, donations or civic involvement, the situation can be just as difficult. When a person has a donation to offer, they often end up making dozens of calls, and can easily become frustrated trying to find an agency who can utilize their specific donation. Pikes Peak United Way 2-1-1 is the ultimate community resource for all of these situations! Comprehensive information and referral agencies have existed for decades. They are valuable community resources dedicated to knowing the services and programs available in a community or region, then serving as a resource to individuals and families in need. They serve as gateways to the health and human services system. When the public is able to dial a simple easy-to-use number, the utilization of comprehensive information and referral services increases dramatically. Pikes Peak United Way 2-1-1 makes it convenient and cost-effective for communities to address the diverse needs of individuals and families. In 2009 alone, community specialists at Pikes Peak United Way 2-1-1 took more than 27,000 calls for service in the Pikes Peak region. Though many were successfully served, there are still thousands of people in the community who are unaware of this service, yet in need of it. If you or someone you know needs health and human service information, please dial 2-1-1 or (719) 955-0742.

Helping Nonprofits Excel Nonprofit organizations depend upon leaders like you. Whether you are involved in governance of a nonprofit as an executive or a board member, or whether you are a staff member, a volunteer, or a donor, your investment of time, talent, and financial resources contributes to the excellent way nonprofits operate. Naturally, you want to invest yourself and your resources in a well-run organization. The Denver Foundation, in their Giving and Volunteering Study, noted that 90 percent of donors choose an organization “because it is one they can trust.” The U.S. Senate Finance Committee has held hearings that draw attention to the balance between government regulations and self-regulations for charitable organizations. To understand the scrutiny imposed upon nonprofits, one needs to merely look at the

IRS Form 990. In order to conform to new requirements for disclosure, and to embrace self-regulation rather than government mandate, nonprofits would be wise to adopt best practices or standards of operation. While small to medium-sized nonprofits, in particular, may benefit from a set of standards, even national or international nonprofits with the resources to develop their own standards should look for training and development opportunities for their local staff members. Awareness of operating standards is essential to ensuring that all nonprofits are transparent and accountable to the public. The Center for Nonprofit Excellence provides regular training according to a program developed by the Maryland Standards for Excellence Institute. Its Guiding Principles, which have been adopted by eight states to date, focus

on critical content areas: n Mission and Program n Governing Body n Conflict of Interest n Human Resources n Financial and Legal n Openness n Fundraising n Public Affairs and Public Policy Covering 55 best practices or standards of operational effectiveness, the eight principles are summarized here.

Mission and Program

A nonprofit organization exists to serve a community need. Its mission statement and programming must be aligned with that particular need. As communities change and their needs See Helping page 13

Building an Excellent Nonprofit Team An effective nonprofit leader isn’t just someone who can get things done, but someone who can get things done through other people. Remember the last time you led a committee or project where people worked well together and achieved outstanding results? What was that like? Do words like creative, fun and productive come to mind? Rather than leave positive team practices and outcomes to chance, why not take a more deliberate effort to make sure you have all the bases covered up front? Research has identified five indicators of excellence in team functioning that you can use in a ‘checklist’ format to gauge the health of your volunteer and staff teams. Alignment: A strong sense of purpose that is shared among team members. In excellent teams, members see themselves seamlessly and passionately

moving in the same direction toward the team’s goal. Can your team answer ‘yes’ to these statements? n We agree on the goals and priorities for this team. n Every member is clear about how their individual responsibilities and contributions relate to the goals of this team. n Every member is committed and passionate about their work on this team. If your team is acting more like a collection of individuals rather than a cohesive group moving in the same direction, consider having a serious discussion about the team’s purpose and how individual responsibilities align with that purpose. Have everyone describe how they picture success for the team and what they can do to get the team there. Finally, discuss how the team will monitor progress and hold it-

self accountable for achieving success. Effectiveness: Processes that support strong communication and cohesiveness. Excellent teams display open communication, trust, flexible decision making and coordinated efforts. How would your team rate themselves on these statements? n We take pride and satisfaction in the work that we do. n We are able to share our ideas and reactions openly and honestly. n We seem to have a lot in common among this team. It is important for everyone on the team to learn how to recognize and take responsibility for facilitating effective group processes. Have a discussion early in the project on how major decisions will be made, team leader responsibilities and operating ground

Tough Times Should Inspire Relevancy, Focus, and Collaboration! Two years ago when I was a “freshman” to the Non-Profit community I wrote about how fortunate I was in my Air Force career to serve in some areas around the world that had experienced either natural or man-made disasters, and to work closely with both US and international governmental, non-governmental, and private relief organizations in trying to satisfy basic human needs (water, food, shelter, security). There, often at great personal risk, I saw firsthand the incredibly important role nonprofits and their volunteers play in addressing not only basic needs, but in providing long-term sustainability to enrich lives and create stronger communities. We only have to think of the ongoing earthquake tragedy in Haiti to appreciate and to be amazed at the incredibly significant role non-profits, especially when teamed with like-minded organizations and individuals from around the nation and globe, can play in changing and saving lives. Daily in Haiti we

see new, creative ways for organizations and individuals to team, merge their efforts, take action, and provide assistance. There’s a lesson there! And there’s a lesson for us here locally too! Reflect for a few seconds on local top of mind issues that seem to be the daily “air we breathe”: homelessness, budget cuts, economic recession, education challenges, unemployment, health/ nutrition, etc. You’ll notice I said “reflect for a few seconds”. Why? Because, although all these issues are important (and at times can seem discouraging), they also can serve as the motivation for us to: n Revisit/rethink our missions and how we accomplish them; n Refocus our efforts on our true core competencies; n Consider whether we’ve maintained our relevancy to today’s issues; Consider whether there are opportunities to collaborate with, maybe even

(dare I say it?) merge with, other likeminded organizations so that we can serve more people, more effectively. Sometimes it takes a common external threat, like the economic downturn, to inspire new thinking, new relationships, and new ways to help others less fortunate. For the past two years we’ve all experienced the increased community need … and spirit … that comes with a sinking economy. Because we’ve all been in it together! But rather than lament the situation, have we seized it as an opportunity to improve how we operate, what we focus on, and how we can have greater impact in the community? That’s where we should be reflecting and spending our creative juices…..and for lots more than just a few seconds!

rules. Designate a different member of the team as the “process observer” for each meeting; their role is to point out to the team any successes and barriers they might observe in the dynamics of the group. Empowerment: The individual and collective power to do what needs to be done. Excellent teams feel they are in control, have the necessary authority to make decisions and carry out assignments, and exercise autonomy in doing what is necessary. What are the team’s responses to these statements? n We have the freedom to use our own judgment to do what is needed to achieve our goals. n We are able to keep going even when we hit a roadblock or obstacle. n We are clear about what we have to do to get the job done. Is the team floundering — unable to make decisions, commit to action or take risks? First, make sure the team has the authority to make decisions and take action within the boundaries of its assignment. Second, make sure the team has the necessary resources and skills

to accomplish the task. And third, team members must have the self-esteem and courage to use the power delegated to them. Passion: The energy, enthusiasm and confidence that exists in the team. Excellent teams feel inspired, perform at high levels and are optimistic about their success. How many of these statements can your team answer ‘yes’ to? n We are excited about the work we are doing. n We have a strong feeling of accomplishment about our work. n Working with this team encourages me to do my best. If the team seems to lack energy, enthusiasm and confidence, ask the members what it will take to fuel the passion needed to keep them focused and able to overcome adversity on their path to success. What common values does the work of the team appeal to? What would it take to create a feeling of accomplishment and pride in the team? What is it about the work of the team that is exciting and pushes each member to do more than they thought was possible? Commitment: The dedication members have to the purpose of the team and to each other. Excellent teams will do whatever

it takes to support each other and to achieve their goal, regardless of the work required. How does your team see these? n We are determined to meet whatever challenges might arise. n We are committed to helping each other, even when things get frustrating. n We are willing to put in extra effort to get things done if needed. Problems with morale or the level of participation in the team indicate that members may have given up or withdrawn emotionally. This could be a symptom of poor team performance in any of the previous four indicators. It may be helpful to discuss barriers to the level of commitment team members feel toward the purpose of the team and toward each other. Has something significantly changed with the charter or direction of the team that would justify an opportunity for uncommitted members to “opt out” of the team? It’s never too late to examine the practices of your nonprofit teams, both strengths and opportunities for development, in order to help them be even more powerful and effective—to help them be better than good, to help them be great!

President and CEO, Independent Sector Diana Aviv is president and CEO of Independent Sector, the national leadership forum for America’s nonprofits, foundations, and corporate giving programs. By representing tens of thousands of organizations across the country, Independent Sector advances the common good by leading, strengthening, and mobilizing the charitable community. Diana is a frequent speaker on trends in and key issues for the sector, such as the financial state of nonprofits, public policies affecting charities and foundations, the role of civil society in democracy, and civic engagement. She has testified several times before Congress and has been featured in media outlets such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, NPR, and MSNBC.com. Diana also served as executive director of the Panel on the Nonprofit Sector, convened by Independent Sector at the encouragement of the leadership of the Senate Finance Committee. In a major 2005 report and a 2006 supplement, this independent panel of leaders from the nonprofit community recommended actions to strengthen the governance, transparency, and accountability of public charities and private foundations. In 2007, the Panel issued the Principles for Good Governance and Ethical Practice: A Guide for Charities and Foundations, which represented the first time that a broad cross-section of America’s charities and foundations had come together to develop principles that they aspire to and encourage all organizations to consider. More than 100,000 copies of the principles have been distributed to members of the nonprofit community. Diana came to Independent Sector

in 2003 after spending nine years at United Jewish Communities. As UJC’s vice president for public policy and director of its Washington Action Office, she worked closely with Jewish federations and national agencies concerned with the health and welfare needs of vulnerable people. Diana focused on federal legislation and regulations, particularly policies affecting health and human service organizations. Diana was formerly associate executive vice chair at the Jewish Council of Public Affairs, director of programs for the National Council of Jewish Women, and director of a comprehensive program to serve battered women and their families. She had a private psychotherapy practice in New York and New Jersey and has served as an expert witness in capital cases in New Jersey. Diana is a member of the board of governors of the Partnership for Public Service and the board of directors of GuideStar and the National Council on Aging. She serves on the advisory boards of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, the International Center for Notfor-Profit Law, and the National Center on Philanthropy and the Law in addition to the Comptroller General’s Advisory Board at the Government Accountability Office.

The impact of the Internet on volunteerism It is impossible to talk about trends in volunteerism and charitable giving without addressing the very real impact of the internet and social networking on our everyday lives. In 2008, 72% of the population in the United States used the internet, spending an average 38 hours online per month. From a nonprofit perspective, where are we in this picture? It would seem that 72% of the population has access to fairly in-depth information about our organizations before we even begin to communicate with them. Through Guidestar (www.guidestar.org) they have access to our IRS Form 990. Through Google, they have access to a myriad of news articles, websites and social networking connections. Volunteers and donors have the ability to be very proactive in finding a “match” for their interests and dollars. These same volunteers and donors

are bombarded with messages online from retailers, well meaning friends and our own nonprofit peers. How do we make our message heard? There are a few steps we can take to engage our donors and volunteers in an ongoing, online relationship. Step 1: Create a website that is easy to read, provides information important to your volunteers and donors, and is refreshed frequently. Visitors should see new information with each visit, not an announcement from an event that took place two months ago. Step 2: Gather email addresses for all your constituents and ask their permission to periodically provide them with information about your organization via email. For terrific guidelines for ethical use of the internet for nonprofit purposes, go the Network for Good website

at www.fundraising123.org. Step 3: Provide interactive opportunities for your volunteers and donors to sign up for volunteer assignments, take surveys or join an online community via your website. Remember, our goal is to make our communications a twoway street. While online donations are still a relatively small percentage (4%) of overall giving in the United States, the number of donors choosing an online giving option grew over 100% in the past three years. In addition, credit card gifts tend to be as much as twice the amount of non-credit card gifts. Volunteers and donors are accessing a message about your organization via the internet. Is your organization directing that message, or are you allowing others to make the first impression?

Connecting Dreamers

What if…

■■ What if instead of working and living in Colorado Springs, we took owner-

ship of Colorado Springs?

■■ What if we taught our kids to do the same? ■■ What if we left a legacy? ■■ What if we were a community of people who were lifelong learners? ■■ What if we took our education and gave it away through our actions? ■■ What if we woke up in the mornings not because of our alarm clocks,

but because of an inner thrust compelling us towards goodness, justice, mercy, and compassion? ■■ What if we took time to hear people’s stories? ■■ What if we not only lived in a beautiful city, but actually maintained and increased its beauty? ■■ What if each person invested themselves in something they believed in? ■■ What if each for-profit company gave one hour per month of their employee’s time away toward the betterment of the community? ■■ Would we have a higher quality of life? ■■ Would we attract a more diverse population? ■■ Would our air be cleaner? ■■ Would our children feel safer? ■■ Would our economy thrive? ■■ Would you believe this was one of the best places to raise a family, climb a mountain, see a musical, wander, find yourself, play, work, eat, worship, grow, live? ■■ What if we — the community called the Pikes Peak Region — didn’t just live but lived “life to the fullest”? ■■What if you dreamed and then acted on your dream? Make your dream a reality — VOLUNTEER!

The Volunteer Center of the Pikes Peak Region is here to help make your dream a reality. There are hundreds of nonprofit agencies in our community who share these dreams and need your help to make them a reality. If you have considered volunteering but just weren’t sure where to start, what skills you might have to offer, or what opportunities were available, then let us give you a guided tour of the volunteer opportunities and “dream-making” agencies in the Pikes Peak Region. We are connecting dreamers through www.volunteerpikespeak.org, let us connect you!

Make a Difference Month

Each year the entire month of October is dedicated to engaging individuals to community-wide volunteerism. This year’s goal is to embrace our community during these difficult times with at least one percent of the population serving the community as we, “Live United, Serve United”. Generation NEXT Volunteer Week (April 17th – 25th). Join us for the inaugural next generation volunteer week. This year’s goal is to empower 1000 members of Gen.

change, the mission and the programs must be reviewed regularly by the board.

Human Resources

From page 7

Governing Body

The governing body or board of a nonprofit organization is composed of volunteers who have a passion for the organization. They have tremendous responsibilities because their decisions impact the organization, its clients, and the entire community. They determine and approve goals, objectives, policies, and financials, and they hire, fire, and evaluate the executive director. Best practices for boards include having five or more unrelated directors, diversity that reflects the community, and term limits.

Conflict of Interest

Board members, staff and volunteers have a responsibility to act in the best interests of the organization and the community, rather than their personal interests. Therefore, organizations must establish conflict of interest policies and disclosure statements. Most people (and their families) are involved in a variety of businesses and organizations. Sometimes these interests will overlap and can cause a conflict or the appearance of a conflict. A written policy is important because it is much easier to determine what constitutes a conflict

new order. What we thought were the rules of the game are gone. And, the economic impact of the new order on nonprofit organizations is apparent.” Need some more motivation? According to a recent Nonprofit Finance Fund Survey: n Only 12% of organizations expected to operate above break-even in 2009. n Only 16% anticipated being able to cover operating expenses in 2009

Employees and volunteers of an organization must be treated fairly. The best way to ensure fairness is to have written, comprehensive personnel policies approved by the board of directors.

professional manner. The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) has a code of ethics that addresses important fundraising practices. Some people are surprised that fundraisers should not be paid a commission based on funds raised. This principle helps ensure that fundraisers act in the best interests of the organization and its donors.

Public Affairs and Public Policy

Fundraising is a major activity in most nonprofit organizations and this activity must be performed in a highly

Nonprofits provide an important avenue through which individuals can organize and work together to improve their communities. Nonprofits should represent the interests of the people they serve through public education and public policy advocacy, as well as by encouraging board members, staff, volunteers and constituents to participate in the public affairs of the community. The Center for Nonprofit Excellence strongly advocates best practices and self-regulation. Our Standards for Excellence program begins with an easy-to-use checklist to assess current operations and where you need to focus your energy to improve operations. The time, money, and efforts that you invest in the nonprofit community are highly valuable. Make sure you invest where your heart is and in organizations that follow best practices. For more information on the Standards for Excellence, please call 719-575-4341 or visit www.cnecoloradosprings.org.

and 2010. n 62% of organizations have less than three months of operating cash on hand. And so Kristy encourages us to: n Change our mindset That takes awareness, energy, and … discomfort occasionally; but it will determine which organizations survive and continue to help our community. n Be willing … and able … to change Attract and integrate innovative people into the organization. They’re easiest to find during an economic shift! n Ask the question: “Does this still

serve us?” If not, seek out ideas and strategies that are working now … and implement them. n Take action now! Stop making excuses! As Charles Dubois once said about courage: “The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.” I encourage each of us to show the courage to sacrifice what we are for what we could become. Be willing to change. Focus on relevancy and collaboration. Take action….. now!

Laws and financial regulations must be obeyed, but beyond legal requirements, there are sound financial practices. The board approves an annual budget and regularly reviews the financial results against the budget. An annual audit is recommended for most organizations. Policies related to purchasing, internal controls, and investments should be approved by the board.

Openness

Since a nonprofit organization exists to serve the community, its operations and financial information should be made available to interested parties. Most nonprofits disclose their financials through an annual report, and they often post it on their websites. This philosophy of transparency increases public trust.

we found that our wireless needs were not being met with our previous provider and that any efforts to resolve those issues were met with resistance. Since we have been with Sprint/Nextel, our service has been impeccable. Specifically, Stacy Dickerson was able to design a plan that met our very specific needs here at the Mission. And, we have found the entire team at Sprint/Nextel to be professional and helpful from the sales team to our Customer Care representative.” Kyle Petrie Director of Operations

Mile High Youth Corps Testimonial: “When I first heard about Sprint’s new program for nonprofits I was admittedly skeptical; why would they want to lower our monthly cellular bill? But after further investigation I found the answer: market share. And they honestly want to support the nonprofit sector. What sold me was the savings. Sprint cut our monthly costs by 34% - and we received newer phones! Do your agency a favor and take a look.” Bob Ridgeway Director of Operations Mile High Youth Corps

The CC Center for Service and Learning Colorado College’s Center for Service and Learning was created to develop civicminded leadership among all members of the college community. Our purpose is to recognize and understand the civic and social challenges of our world and to act with others in pursuit of a just society.

The numbers speak for themselves: In the 2008-09 school year, 1225 students, staff, faculty, and community members working through the CSL contributed 30,949 hours of service. This is equivalent to one person working 8 hours a day for 101/2 years. We never miss a Sunday: The CC Community Kitchen in Shove Chapel had 167 volunteers last year, and they volunteered a total of 2,272 hours. The Kitchen operated every Sunday in 2008-2009 (as it has done for the past 17 years). Service begins before the first day of classes: Since 2003, CC’s New Student Orientation (NSO) has centered on a service trip experience, made possible through the Priddy Grant program. Over 3,100 students have participated in NSO service trips since the program began. From our backyards to the far corners: The International Service Program at CC was established in 2006 to provide students with an advanced level service experience in another country. CC students have worked to provide clean drinking water and solar power to refugee villages in India, working with local people and NGOs to create lasting partnerships. In Spring of 2010, they are going to Peru, taking their local action to the global level.

The CC Partnership for Civic Engagement Coursework meets community: Approximately 1/3 of professors at Colorado College teach courses with community experiences, projects at local non-profits, or assignments that, through direct interaction with community members, envision solutions to community problems and needs. Many of these professors and students are working alongside local non-profits and community organizations like you!

Innovative new certificate program: CC is demonstrating its continued commitment to equipping our students with the skills, knowledge, and experience to influence outcomes for the good of our local community through the NEW Community-Engaged Leadership Certificate. This student certificate culminates with a self-designed integrative experience on an issue of community concern. There will be a fair each spring to highlight and share these projects with stakeholders and non-profits.
