2 core values We believe that the freedom to form and operate nongovernmental organizations is the bedrock of democracy. The core values of ESCH are: Community services provided by nonprofits are critically important to the quality of life in our society. Efficiently operated nonprofits are able to increase the benefits of philanthropy. Understanding the needs of our community is paramount to our service to the community. Integrity, honesty and transparency are foremost in everything we do. Commitment to quality is central to all our activities. Our volunteer consultants are an invaluable source of knowledge, skills and experience. Diversity of cultures, gender, backgrounds and abilities is a strength that benefits us and our community. Continuous learning is essential to enhance the skills of our consultants and staff. Our volunteer consultants and staff derive a high degree of personal satisfaction and fulfillment through their work. mission To promote best management practices within the nonprofit sector Committed staff and sufficient resources are necessary to ensure the effectiveness of our volunteer consultants. It is essential to balance any need to charge for services with the best interest of our clients. Individualized services are necessary to address the unique needs of our clients. Compassion and understanding are important for building constructive working relationships with clients.

3 Major Accomplishments... Secured funding to purchase Developing Development and train trainers Trained consultants in Financial Fitness program Gave numerous presentations at the national meeting of the Executive Service Corps Affiliate Network Gave an educational session to ExxonMobil Summer Interns during which they designed the basic outline for a new nonprofit including board composition, programming, staffing and budget Added seminars in marketing and development Designed and printed new marketing materials for our signature programs, Financial Fitness for Nonprofit Program, Developing Development, and Executive Leadership Coaching with a grant from the America Marketing Association, Houston Chapter Message from the CHAIRMAN Executive Service Corps of Houston is an organization whose time has come. After twenty-seven years of successful management consultative aid to Texas nonprofits, ESCH has proven that its time-test talent can reliably provide solid service at a most reasonable price. Uniquely, our ESCH consultant continue to offer skilled management mentoring to agencies over many years. In 2010, ESCH emphasized marketing of its many services by acting upon the results of a 2009 survey by a Houston marketing research firm, Marketing Syndicate. The new logo, displayed prominently on the cover and throughout this publication was finalized and a new tagline of helping nonprofits excel was launched in April, American Marketing Association (Houston) helped to prepare promotional materials which included a general brochure regarding ESCH activities, Executive Director Coaching Program and Financial Fitness program brochures. With consultant input, ESCH completed a cohesive promotion plan for its projects and seminars. ESCH adopted a new program, Developing Development, purchased through our friends at Executive Service Corps of Southern California, and funded through The Fondren Foundation. This important program was set for trajectory in early 2011 by then-executive Director Dr. Jane Harding. CLIENT FEES: Through an arduous and much-debated evolutionary process, ESCH s 2010 project successes included its first full year of charging for projects which earned approximately $17,000 or nearly 9% of the agency s total income. ESCH s other successes include: Provided the two more successful Marathon Seminar day-long sessions to local charities. Finalized a Getting Down to Business program with support of Capital One Bank Expanded fifth year of collaboration with University of Houston C.T. Bauer College of Business for senior-level student management information systems projects for local nonprofits. Hired a part-time Development Director, Jennifer Hansen, for one half year. Committed to Nonprofit Management Excellence We don t fund nonprofits... we make their funding go further by helping to solve those problems that hinder their productivity and impede their capacity to serve the public We help them to more efficiently carry out their missions. ESCH s Board of Trustees became more involved in development by persuading funders and joining the Greater Houston Partnership to access business community and policies. Partnership with ExxonMobil resulted in ESCH s continuing sponsored internship. The internship resulted in client interviews via YouTube videos that capture succinctly from nonprofit leaders the good work accomplished by our organization. After five years as Executive Director of Executive Service Corps of Houston, Dr. Jane Harding retired her position to spend more time with family. Generously, she will retain her position as an ESCH consultant and on the board of ESC Affiliate Network. In December, a new Executive Director, Sally Tyler, CFRE, was hired to help continue and improve marketing and outreach efforts begun through the previous administration and to assist stabilization of funding for the organization. The aggressive five-year strategic plan to double the client base and increase organizational capacity begun under the leadership of Dr. Harding ran into strong headwinds from the start. It will be reviewed and reassessed with the changes of the Houston economy in mind. According to the Rice University Kinder Institute for Urban Research, Harris County residents have become somewhat more upbeat in their personal economic anxieties, but they remain pessimistic about the long-term economic prospects. Despite their economic anxieties, area residents perceive an improving quality of life in the region, and they are increasingly upbeat about the Houston area as a place to live. In order to prosper in the high-technology, knowledge-based, global economy of the twenty-first century, Houston will need to nurture a far more educated workforce and fashion policies that can reduce the growing inequalities and prevent the rise of a new urban underclass. Executive Service Corps of Houston stands ready to meet the challenges of the future with its consultants solid experience and expertise. Out time is now to emerge as leaders of this most important and needed mission-driven industry that will help shape Houston s true quality of life. 4 5

We are grateful to who again chose to be the named sponsor for these services. Executive Leadership Coaching helps executive directors focus on needed leadership skills ESCH continued its coaching program for executive directors. The model is a combination of a strengths-based approach and the emotional intelligence model.

Financial Fitness for Nonprofit Programs Financial Fitness for Nonprofits (FFNP) consists of a series of components to help board members and staff understand their fiduciary responsibilities, establish sound fiscal management and develop effective budgeting methods. FFNP will be provided by financial experts, who volunteer their services for ESCH. What are the results? Strong board oversight and staff operations providing these benefits: Confidence in making fiscally sound decisions, improved risk management, concise financial communications, better budgeting, forecasting and reporting, increased accountability and efficiency. Development underwritten by The Fondren Foundation Reductions in foundation and donor support. Increased demand for services. Programs and staff stretched thin.

DDP provides your organization with the expert training and individualized coaching that will help your fundraising grow and thrive. A successful funds development team includes board members, staff and community volunteers who are passionate, energized, and ready to execute the game plan.

Next Step Fund works to connect low-income, at-risk youth to life-changing college- and career-preparatory learning experiences beyond the traditional high school classroom PROBLEM: Needed a business plan RESOLUTION: ESCH advisors, Hugh Williams, worked closely with the founder and leadership to guide the organization led by a plan of action and marketable metrics, that have helped evolve from one to two successful site schools. AGENCY: KSBJ MISSION: Christ-centered, non-profit, listener-supported radio ministry PROBLEM: Needed infrastructure and realignment of duties RESOLUTION: Much has been achieved with ESCH team s presence and assistance which enabled them to achieve results much more efficiently and competently. ESCH assisted organizational realignment and the improvement in cross-departmental decision making processes. AGENCY: Buffalo Soldiers National Museum AGENCY: The Amazing Place MISSION: To provide fellowship, memory care and wellness for adults with mild to moderate memory loss and support to their families and the community. PROBLEM: Over a period several years between , ESCH consultants worked with leadership to change name and improve recognition, create a strategic plan and launch a capital campaign. RESOLUTION: In 2007, with continuing guidance from ESCH, Amazing Place Board of Directors launched a Building for Generations Campaign to raise $7.2 million to build a new facility, establish an endowment, and provide a scholarship fund. At the agency s request, ESCH consultants continue to mentor and advise this successful nonprofit. What Our Clients Say: Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for dedicating your time, expertise, and suggesting the wonderful seminar that you all provided. The board retreat that was held at your office provided insight and clarity...and will definitely assist us in laying a foundation for the continued growth and sustainability of the center. We have certainly been fortunate and privileged to be a recipient of the prompt and quality services of ESCH. Mission: The primary objectives of the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum and Heritage Center are to preserve, promote and perpetuate the history, tradition and outstanding contributions of the Buffalo Soldiers toward the development and defense of the United States of America. The mission and goals are to interpret, articulate, collect, display and preserve historical artifacts, documents, videos, prints and other historical memorabilia which details the history of the brave men and women who overcame extreme adversity while gallantly fighting the great American wars. PROBLEM: The Museum needed a cohesive marketing plan that would promote and communicate the contribution of African-American soldiers in the defense the U.S., while growing visitation and membership over a multi-year period. The museum was founded in 2000 and has over 40,000 visitors per year and a member base of 350. They are currently rehabilitating the Houston Light Guard Armory building near the Museum District which will enable display of significantly more artifacts than in their current facility. RESOLUTION: ESCH recommended specific goals and action items to achieve the objective of the plan: To increase mind share of BSNM with local, national and international visitors, fundraising sources and donors, educational institutions, military organizations, government influences and media outlets. Create a strong museum brand by implement an ongoing media relations campaign through coverage in visitors guides, newspapers, broadcast media and military publications. Exploit opportunities available through social media (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, etc.) and links to the BSNM web site. To organize a memorable Grand Opening of the Armory facility. To develop and maintain a strong membership base of at least 1,000 total paid memberships by December Grow memberships by 10% each year thereafter. 8 9
