Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” South Carolina is fortunate to have so many extraordinary nonprofit leaders doing extraordinary work every day. It is work worth doing, and it changes the lives of people and the life of our great state in measurable ways.
On July 1 we began a new fiscal and program year at SCANPO. Our commitment to you this year is to continue growing our ability to serve, support and strengthen you, the nonprofits and nonprofit leaders of South Carolina. I encourage you to take full advantage of the many services, learning opportunities, and networking events offered by SCANPO during the year. You will learn and grow, and, you’ll have a little (maybe even a lot) of fun along the way.
We ask that you fully engage with SCANPO in 2016-17 because we firmly believe that well-managed and responsibly governed nonprofits result in stronger and healthier South Carolina communities. When we all join together to participate in opportunities to build the knowledge, promote collaboration, and strengthen our collective voice, we become better leaders, our nonprofits become stronger, our communities are changed for the better and our state is transformed.
That’s the prize for working hard at work worth doing.
I am honored to serve as chair of SCANPO for a second year. As we enter a new year, I want you to help me in thanking our retiring board members who ably served for many years, and in welcoming our new board members and committee chairs. I appreciate their leadership and their commitment to SCANPO and to you!
Thank you for working hard at work worth doing. Thank you for working together. Together for good.
Board of Directors

Dear SCANPO Members.
You can help strengthen SC’s nonprofit community by nominating strong candidates for SCANPO’s Board of Directors.
We have decided to fill five seats with new Directors. Directors serve three-year terms and the Board meets four to five times a year, typically the last Tuesday of the second month of the quarter. Interested candidates are strongly encouraged to review our current Board Member Responsibility Statement!
Given the current composition of the Board and the ongoing desire to have a diverse and representative Board of Directors, our Committee seeks candidates who:
- are senior staff members of organizations that are active SCANPO members in good standing;
- believe in and already are engaged in SCANPO’s work as evidenced by involvement with the Nonprofit Summit, regional gatherings, committees, etc;
- believe in life-long learning and the value of SCANPO’s Guiding Principles & Best Practices. Strong consideration will be given to nominees from organizations which have received the Award for Excellence or individuals who have received the Award for Leadership; and
- help increase the diversity of age, ethnicity, gender, geography served, member type, and skills represented on the Board so that the Board is reflective of the diversity of its membership and the charitable nonprofit sector in South Carolina.
At least fifty-one percent (51%) of the Board must be employees of organizations that are recognized as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code in accordance with SCANPO Bylaws.
We will close nominations on Friday, March 11th at midnight so we can discuss during the Summit.
Our goal is to email the final slate to voting members in April when you will have two weeks to review and vote. New members will be invited to attend the Board retreat in May.
Please Submit your Nominations here!
Thank you for your time and input. I look forward to seeing you at the Summit.
