Necessity is the mother of invention. In the nonprofit world, this often means that organizations grow out of the simplest of seeds: someone sees a need, and rolls up his or her sleeves up to meet it. But identifying needs and having a desire to address them and affect change does not always mean you know what you’re doing, or what you’ve gotten in to when you dig in. That’s where SCANPO comes in.
As the state’s premier nonprofit resource, we offer a knowledge network that’s bar none. If you are a start-up charitable organization, or if you’ve been around for decades and simply want to continue to improve, we offer guidelines, how-to’s, seminars and workshops on professional development, board development, nonprofit management and governance.
We encourage peer-to-peer mentoring with our fellow member organizations. We are here to help you expand your knowledge base, so South Carolina’s nonprofits can become the most effective organizations possible.
Please use our Resource Center and share it with others. And let us know what we can offer to help your organization become even stronger and more effective.
