Great Ways to Improve Your Nonprofit Smarts
A Note from Our Director

ESC Director Tom Mongeon
There's no question that running a nonprofit takes a lot of smarts. Every day, nonprofit leaders must intelligently analyze how clients, staff and programs are doing, as well as what is happening in the world at large that will affect operations.

This issue of the ESC newsletter looks at some of the smart people and smart moves we have seen benefit nonprofits. It also contains a fun quiz to test your nonprofit IQ about important issues that can impact your organization. Please enjoy this issue and let us know if ESC can help your organization improve its smarts.

Remembering Our ESC Friends
Over the past year, we have lost two of our ESC consultants and friends, so we would like to take a moment to honor their commitment to helping nonprofits succeed. Richard Hodgkinson was a key part of large ESC projects at the Portsmouth Housing Authority and the Laconia Housing Authority. Don McGuinness was a driving force for our project at The Bridge House, a homeless shelter in Plymouth, NH. Our deepest gratitude to Richard and Don, who did so much to enrich ESC and the New England nonprofit community.
