ABOUT ESC A nonprofit network of talented and trained volunteer consultants, ESC helps dedicated nonprofit leaders and managers to translate dreams and vision into reality. ESC is proudly entering its 35th year of extraordinary service and partnership with its nonprofit clients. Founded in 1978 by a group of civic-minded corporate leaders who wanted to leverage their knowledge and career-long experience to “give back” to the community, ESC won early support from the Chicago Community Trust and the United Way of Metropolitan Chicago, agencies that continue today as strategic partners. ESC provides professional consulting services that are measurable and lasting. Foundation and corporate support enables ESC to ensure that these services are affordable and available to any member of the nonprofit community.

THE ESC ADVANTAGE

leaders will be those who empower others.

— BILL GATES

In 2012, ESC focused our efforts on putting into place the pieces that will expand our services to meet the changing needs of nonprofits and public agencies across all market segments in 2013 and beyond. We are a consulting partner and resource for other nonprofits and public agencies, allowing them to gain strength, survive, adapt and thrive in challenging times. ESC’s work produces significant and lasting results benefitting entire communities. We are measuring progress that grantors can monitor and creating training forums that corporate partners can use to bridge their active participation through nonprofit board leadership. I am proud to serve as chair of an organization that has such a tremendously positive and far-reaching impact among Chicago area nonprofits. Toni S. Smith / Former Partner, Spencer Stuart and Chair, ESC Board of Directors

ESC cares … we create an important space, where nonprofit leaders can safely hit the “pause” button, step back from the challenges of the day and gain new perspectives. Our consultants invest in those leaders, giving whatever time is necessary, to help them create and implement practical actions that fit their resources and achieve their goals. ESC’s unique work extends well beyond what is visible— leaders gain the confidence necessary to weather inevitable challenges and strengthen and expand critical services to individuals and community. Pamela J. Wilcox

/ President & CEO, Executive Service Corps of Chicago

ESC’s real advantage is its people, volunteers who are sincerely and personally invested in the success of Chicago area nonprofits and public agencies, and whose career-long expertise and training offers a truly unique and singularly affordable lifeline to 150 or more organizational clients every year. The work we do strengthens the pulse of the region’s economy and quality of life for thousands of men, women, and children.

INNOVATIVE THINKING AND CUSTOMIZED APPROACH Together ESC’s unique approach and adaptive service models demonstrate an APPROACH # 1

Customized 3-Prong Solution for Human Services in Chicago’s Southland 1. An in-depth survey assessment of governance, financial health and management practices helped to determine the needs and knowledge gaps of human service agencies serving Chicago’s southland communities. 2. A series of workshops hosted by ESC experts addressed hot topics discovered in the assessment and created a community of knowledge sharing among the nonprofits selected for this approach. 3. Five nonprofits with urgent challenges and opportunities were identified for in-depth consulting assistance.

Substantial decline in public funding for social services has placed pressure on private funding to fill the gaps, but the gaps are larger than the philanthropic sector can manage. As a result, funders are looking at creative ways to focus and maximize limited resources. United Way’s project in the Southland communities gave us the opportunity to work with ESC in an exemplary model. They created a unique approach—innovative, customized, with a focus on assessment, service and measurement of outcomes. It worked! Wendy DuBoe

President and CEO, United Way of Metropolitan Chicago, former member of the ESC Board of Directors (2008–2010)

In 2012, ESC and the United Way of Metropolitan Chicago partnered in an initiative to strengthen human service agencies serving low-income, underserved neighborhoods in the outer limits of the City of Chicago and southern suburbs. More than 40 nonprofits participated in the survey assessment. Leadership staff and board members from more than 30 nonprofits serving these communities attended the workshops to add to their knowledge in finance, board governance and risk management. The five human service agencies selected for focused, personalized consulting worked with a team of trained ESC consultants over an eight-month period. This partnership for addressing the capacity-building/technical assistance needs of local nonprofits through an adaptive, integrated model produced such satisfying results that ESC has adapted it for use in other communities.

In-Depth Consulting in Action: Managed Care Climate Presents New Source of Revenue ESC consultants worked with White Crane Wellness Center, an organization dedicated to improving the health and well-being of older adults, to facilitate a strategic plan that would align with opportunities emerging from new managed health care systems. Hospitals and managed care organizations are working to reduce patient readmission rates to keep individuals healthier, longer and realize cost savings. ESC helped White Crane develop a strategic approach to provide requisite patient support services and follow-up care. Hospitals and managed care entities would pay for the service from savings realized by reimbursement for reduced patient readmissions. This new source of potential revenue can dramatically increase the scope of services provided by White Crane to their clients.

The experience and its outcomes were outstanding. Our organizational capacity has been significantly enhanced, thus positively impacting the services and care that we offer our community. Completion of our project marks the beginning of continued growth and development of enhanced strategies to improve the health and well-being of our community’s older adults. Elizabeth Cagan / Executive Director, White Crane

extraordinary capacity for meeting changing needs. APPROACH #2

Resources for Arts and Culture Vibrancy ESC continued its highly successful partnership with the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation in The MacArthur Arts & Culture Loan Fund to address the ongoing cyclical revenue challenges of many arts and culture nonprofits. This innovative program provides low-cost financing lines-of-credit and bridge loans to small and mid-sized arts and culture groups that receive grant support either directly from the Foundation or the MacArthur Funds at the Prince Charitable Trusts and the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.

Without a doubt, the MacArthur Loan Fund for Arts & Culture Programs, under the auspices of ESC, provided a most valuable service to the Chicago Human Rhythm Project by enabling the realization of the establishment of the American Rhythm Center, Phase One. Not only was the program instrumental in easing the cash flow crunch resulting from the construction, but the application process was relatively simple and the turnaround time was extremely fast. One cannot overstate the importance of these three qualities, under the circumstances! We are very grateful to The MacArthur Foundation and ESC for providing this remarkable assistance.

Frank Sonntag / former Executive Director of the Chicago Human Rhythm Project, a MacArthur Loan Fund recipient ESC created and manages the entire screening and preparation process that affirms applicant eligibility and guides them in applying for a loan from one of three banks participating in the program. Since its inception, more than 20 organizations have received LOCs/loans ranging from $25,000 to $100,000, gaining vital working capital at a time when that has been difficult for many nonprofits. ESC teams have also worked with the participating groups to strengthen their financial management, while addressing issues such as board-oversight, staff coaching, and much more.

Northern Trust’s collaboration with ESC has led to a highly tailored development opportunity for our executives currently serving on nonprofit and civic boards. Leveraging ESC’s governance and training expertise, our launch of the Northern Trust Board Leadership Forum adds a new dimension to our board leadership program and furthers our goals of making a meaningful impact on the communities in which we work and live. Deborah Liverett

APPROACH #3

Senior Vice President & Director of Community Affairs, Northern Trust

Corporate Tools for Effective Nonprofit Board Service Nonprofits of every size and passion in metropolitan Chicago struggle to maintain a robust Board of Directors with the skills and training to advance their mission. Simultaneously, many companies are seeking ways to raise their community commitment for more consistent and longer-term results. In 2012, ESC established a partnership with The Northern Trust’s Community Affairs Division to launch The Northern Trust Board Leadership Forum in 2013, a half-day educational opportunity for senior and emerging executives to learn how to maximize nonprofit board leadership. Based on a needs assessment survey tailored for Northern Trust executives, ESC produced content for the program and a customized nonprofit board governance primer as well as a toolkit for more than 40 Northern Trust executives. Forum participants will also have the opportunity to receive ongoing peer group learning. ESC will be working with other companies with a similar interest in leadership development for nonprofit board service as a way to advance their citizenship programs and maintain the pipeline for effective nonprofit board leadership in metropolitan Chicago.
