  3. 3. Core Values Commitment ESCC is committed to helping our clients carry out their missions more effectively. Professionalism ESCC is an organization comprised of highly-skilled professionals delivering quality services to the nonprofit community with the same level of professionalism with which they approach career endeavors. Accountability ESCC is committed to demonstrating to investors and other stakeholders that we are a trustworthy steward of their investment and support. Growth ESCC believes in long-term, continuous growth for our clients and for our volunteers. Collaboration ESCC believes that “together we can do more.” Community issues do not arise in a vacuum, and they cannot be most effectively addressed by those operating in a vacuum. 3 Letter To The Community From Our Leaders In 2011, we celebrated our 16th year of improving our community by helping to strengthen many of the nonprofit organizations in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area. Nonprofits continue to face tremendous challenges by being asked to do more with less. They face the dual hardship of decreased funding and increased requests for more services by the people they assist. We are pleased that our work reduces this hardship for nonprofits and contributes to the overall well being of people in our community through the high quality, affordable consulting and coaching services, and leadership development we provide. From our humble beginning with 30 volunteer consultants serving less than 20 nonprofits, we have grown to more than 120 volunteer consultants who donated 10,300 hours of service in 2011, valued at more than $1 million at full market rates. The foundation of our agency is built on the strength of our workforce of talented and experienced volunteers and staff who enjoy being able to give back to the community. We are very proud to say that 16 of ESCC’s original members continue to be involved with ESCC today. And some of our clients have been with us from our inception. This speaks to the value and experience ESCC brings to nonprofits specifically, and the community in general. We are very grateful for our bright, dedicated, hardworking volunteers, without whom we would not exist. What remains a challenge to us now is creating the proper type of service delivery to handle the changing needs of nonprofit businesses and volunteers. To that end, we will implement in mid-2012 a new business plan (Project Performance Excellence) to ensure that ESCC is strategically positioned to continue to grow and serve our clients. And we welcome our 2012 Board Chair, Aubrey Herman, to help shepherd the implementation of this plan. As you will see in our community report, ESCC had a productive year in 2011. We are steadily improving our financial sustainability as we hold ourselves to the same best practices that we urge our clients to follow. In closing, we truly appreciate the overall investment of time, talent and support we receive from our stakeholders, volunteers and the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky community. Sincerely, Andrew McCreanor Executive Director/CEO Sincerely, Frederick H. Heyse 2011 Board Chair Our Mission To help nonprofits achieve their missions by providing high quality, affordable consulting services.

  7. 7. ESCC Programs Freestore Foodbank Leadership Institute Freestore Foodbank and ESCC partnered for the third year in a program designed to increase the distribution capacity of FSFB agencies from 14 million pounds of food a year to 16 million pounds. Under this eight-month program that runs from September till June, ESCC coached 36 FSFB agencies one-on-one, as well as provided monthly leadership training sessions to assist them to reach this goal. Each workshop provides the opportunity to learn skills and knowledge to provide strategic thinking and time to create capacity assessments, develop plans, and report increased capabilities.

  8. 8. ESCC Our Volunteers 2011 Volunteers More than 100 volunteers contributed 10,300 hours in 2011. 300+ hours Fred Heyse, Meta Sien, Craig Kowalski, Bob Conklin, Carol Leigh, Bob Wuerdeman, Denny Fennema, Randy Harris, Jerry Lewis 200-300 hours Rod Trombley, Mark Grote, Russ Rosen, Connie Hinitz, Rick Findlay, Dick Fencl 100-200 hours Hirsh Cohen, George Dershimer, Jerry Knobeloch, Don Storck, Julia Johnson, Bill Tucker, Ed Hand, Rob Allanson, Andy McCreanor, Carol Sparks, Joe Doench, Bill Luerssen, Pete Teitelman, Tom Fisher, Fred Joffe ESCC is privileged to count a wide variety of retired and working professionals as volunteer members of ESCC. These dedicated women and men come from many sectors of the business and nonprofit communities to lend their considerable talents in many valuable ways – from coaching to consulting to training to serving on our board and serving as a valuable part of our small staff. They join ESCC for many reasons – from a desire to give back to the community, to wanting to learn new skills, to keeping current skills fresh, to making new friends. We are very grateful for our wonderful volunteers. Without them our organization could not exist. This year we are proud to report that 60 new members joined during the year for a total of 120+ volunteers by the end of the year. “ESCC provides the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky community with valuable services to increase the strength and sustainability of our nonprofits.“ - Karen Monday VP Foundation and Business Management Duke Energy Ohio and Kentucky “ESCC provides meaningful, relevant services to other nonprofits in our community. Assisting these agencies with leadership and human resource development is both fulfilling and rewarding.” - Julia Johnson “By sharing my work experiences with nonprofits I am able to help others by giving back to the community.” - Rod Trombley “I’m so impressed with the dedicated nonprofit professionals and volunteers with whom I have worked and look forward to each new project to continue helping more people in our community.” - Rick Findlay 8
  9. 9. ESCC Community Impact Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS) and Procter & Gamble Foundation have been strong supporters of ESCC for many years. For the past four years P&G Foundation has contributed more than $100,000 to ESCC to provide IT and operational capacity-building projects within CPS. To date, ESCC has partnered with CPS on 24 projects with more than a dozen more in the pipeline. ESCC has been responsible for implementing a wide range of cost-cutting and efficiency-producing processes that have totaled $6 million savings for the central office. A few of the major projects over the years include negotiation of new school bus contracts, design and implementation of an IT disaster recovery project, improved Performance Evaluation system and establishing a supplier diversity program. Safe Routes to School, a recent project, is part of a national program geared toward improving the safety of students walking or biking to school while also improving the health of the children. As ESCC continues to work with operational issues at CPS, it is broadening its reach into the schools. In a recent project with the School for Creative and Performing Arts, ESCC is successfully helping the school resolve governance issues and develop a strategic plan; this work may be reapplied to other schools as well. “We are proud that we’re changing the culture within Cincinnati Public Schools by challenging our traditional ways of working and bringing in best practices from the business world. ESCC volunteers play a vital role in this shift. We look forward to expanding this work into additional areas of CPS.” - Mary A. Ronan, Superintendent Cincinnati Public Schools “As we continue to trim the (operational) fat and get more into the muscle, our projects are becoming more complex. Not only do the volunteer consultants provide outstanding strategic direction, but they are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and work side-by-side with us. We do not have the staff or the expertise to make these internal efficiency changes on our own and could not have done this without ESCC’s help.” - Terry Elfers, Chief Operating Officer Cincinnati Public Schools “As good stewards of our Foundation’s dollars we have to be certain the investments we make in the community are worthwhile. Time after time, Executive Service Corps of Cincinnati has proven that they bring intrinsic value to the entire community by improving operations within Cincinnati Public Schools which helps the educational process for all our children.” - Sean Parker, Community Relations Manager P&G 9
  10. 10. Since 2004 Executive Service Corps of Cincinnati has partnered with Cincinnati’s iconic nonprofit — Freestore Foodbank — on a variety of strategic initiatives. Freestore’s CEO John Young refers to ESCC as their“go to” agency when they need assistance. This year ESCC has helped Freestore Foodbank achieve three strategic goals: Improve capacity at its food pantries, better leverage its existing food and assist more women in entering the workforce. In particular this year, ESCC helped broker Dress for Success’merger with the Freestore Foodbank family. Together they will help more women gain the confidence necessary to move into the workforce and out of the“at risk”population. “We major in food,” Young said, but minor in partnerships.” Community Impact Freestore Foodbank Partnership John Young, CEO, Freestore Foodbank Since 1995 — the inception of both American Heritage Girls (AHG) and Executive Service Corps of Cincinnati — each agency has grown along parallel paths. Today, AHG is a national scouting organization with 19,000 members in 45 states and six countries worldwide. And the original founder, Patti Garibay, still leads the helm as National Executive Director. For the past 16 years, ESCC has helped AHG with increasingly more complex work. In 2011, ESCC completed a Process Mapping project for AHG, headed by Mark Grote. “That was such a great exercise for creating buy in for our change initiative,”Garibay said. “Our staff had to visually see that we were inefficient and duplicating efforts in some areas. We knew we needed to operate smarter for the future.” Garibay said their organization grew more than 35 per cent last year. If they remain on their current trajectory, she predicts that AHG will reach over 80,000 members by 2015.

In my opinion, the Statements of Profit & Loss and Balance Sheet of The Executive Service Corps of Cincinnati, Inc. to be included in the annual report, fairly state in all material aspects the cash flows for the year 20011 and the net assets as of December 31, 2011.

I noted that Andy McCreanor, Bob Conklin and Darlyne Koretos continue their attention to detail in how you track, report and document all financial transactions. Sincerely, Gerard J.
