Experienced volunteer workforce contributes talent to the community Our volunteers bring positive change to the local community by helping nonprofits operate more effectively. This allows our clients to focus on fulfilling their missions that help the individuals they serve. On average, an Executive Service Corps of Cincinnati (ESCC) volunteer consultant brings more than 25 years of experience in leadership and management in various industries and across many areas of expertise. The community is the beneficiary of these selfless men and women who deliver 100 percent of ESCCs services. Nearly 10,000 hours of volunteers consulting services, valued at approximately $1.6 million, made a difference at 92 area nonprofits. In the following pages of the Report to the Community you will learn how a team of ESCC volunteers partnered with The Jewish Federation of Cincinnati on a major business initiative that will help position the Federation to serve its broader community needs. In another instance that several volunteers worked with a large, local school district to conduct a competitive labor market analysis of the community it serves. The findings show that the district has a strong competitive edge and is able to recruit and hire the best qualified teachers and staff. The World Choir Games was perhaps the most visible area event to occur in 2012. By assisting the WCG staff in training the 4700 volunteers involved in the Games, ESCC consultants brought great value to this milestone event that helped raise worldwide awareness of the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area. With the implementation of ESCCs Community Benefit Business Model in 2013, we will continue to harness the power of our volunteer workforce and improve delivery of our services to nonprofits. Andrew McCreanor Aubrey Herman Executive Director/CEO Board Chair Our Mission We strengthen nonprofits to reach bold community goals.

Executive Director Dynette Clark attributes much of her organizations success to its ongoing partnership with Executive Service Corps of Cincinnati. I really benefited from the first moment I met with ESCC, she explained.
