Training, Leadership, and Capacity Building Initiatives

OKCNP’s leadership and capacity building initiatives embolden the nonprofit workforce to grow within their organizations, prepare for leadership roles, and maximize their talents to effectively further the mission of their organizations. In addition to our leadership and capacity building initiatives, OKCNP offers numerous summits, webinars, and workshops that holistically address topics critical to the success of nonprofits such as board governance, leadership, sustainability, management, fiduciary oversight, government relations, and resource development. Because of the breadth of resources and expertise OKCNP provides, we can effectively reach organizations at the management, board, and donor levels and encourage efficient nonprofit organizations that operate according to best practices and at the peak of productivity.

The Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits conceived the Oklahoma Nonprofit Excellence (ONE) Awards to honor the amazing work that nonprofit organizations are doing the state of Oklahoma. These dedicated organizations are changing the landscape of human services and community assistance. We choose to honor their achievements with recognition and funding. Three finalists in each of eight categories will receive at least $5000, with the overall winner receiving a $10,000 grant. The Center proudly honors 24 nonprofits across Oklahoma who have demonstrated excellence within their organizations and throughout their community. The nonprofits are selected by 12 state leaders that comprise the ONE Awards Selection Commission. Honorees do not apply for the awards, but are nominated and selected by the ONE Awards Selection Commission. The Commission is composed of Oklahomans from throughout the state that represent a wide variety of backgrounds and interests. They are esteemed individuals who donate their time and expertise to selecting and nominating Oklahoma nonprofits in the service categories listed below. They meet twice over the several-month process to nominate and select nonprofits. Following the initial nomination, the nonprofits are asked to submit an in-depth application.

In 2011, the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits launched the Visions awards to recognize and celebrate the exemplary service of Oklahoma’s nonprofit leaders. The honorees selected for recognition at Visions have dedicated their lives and careers to ensure the success of nonprofit organizations essential to Oklahoma’s communities. Visions currently honors distinguished individuals in five categories:The Special Recognition Award will go to a nonprofit staff member (not an executive director) who goes above and beyond the call of duty in his or her job. This unsung hero in an organization helps to support the nonprofit, live out the mission and act as an ambassador to fellow staff, clients and the community.The Lifetime Achievement Award will go to a community leader(s) who has demonstrated a commitment to the sector. This philanthropic leader(s), time and time again, has provided guidance and direction for various causes, missions and campaigns thanks to their dedication and volunteerism in the community and state.The Pat Potts Visionary Award will go to a nonprofit executive who has dedicated a lifetime to a charitable initiative of his or her vision. This tenacious, skilled and respected nonprofit leader has changed lives through their thoughtful leadership and commitment to excellence in all they do for this nonprofit.The Rodney Bivens Innovation Award will go to a visionary leader(s) or volunteer(s) honors an individual(s) who created a charitable initiative through exceptional vision and, in a very short period of time, impacted the community through innovation and creativity. This award celebrates the boldness of new initiatives designed to quickly address a problem with an inventive solution.The President’s Award honors an individual that may not fit perfectly into another award category. The honoree is chosen by the Center’s President and CEO.

While most nonprofit organizations hire or have access to basic bookkeeping services, oversight by a Certified Public Accountant or individual(s) with strong nonprofit finance experience is expensive and, many times, cost-prohibitive. Additionally, nonprofit organizations face more intense scrutiny from both the IRS and the philanthropic community to account for donor funds received and how those are used appropriately for program delivery. OKCNP’s Shared Financial Services aids nonprofits to better prepare staff and board members with monthly statements that are more easily understood and have greater accuracy. Our staff meets with the nonprofit manager or board finance chair on a regular basis, helps prepare reports, reviews financial statements, makes corrections or suggestions for better accuracy, attends finance committee meetings and attends board meetings. Additionally, OKCNP will assist with payroll filing, financial issues related to HR, and reconciliation of statements.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits (OKCNP) aims to equip Oklahoma nonprofits with the knowledge and tools to effectively build capacity and achieve maximum impact; thereby, strengthening the nonprofit sector and the hundreds of communities it serves. The Center’s steadfast commitment to leading practices impacts Oklahoma’s diverse communities by maintaining and propagating the highest level of efficacy, transparency, and management. It is through the success of other organizations that our mission is fulfilled.

Nonprofits exist to serve the needs of communities and individuals. They provide a vast amount of services to communities that would otherwise not be provided. With such a focus on the needs of others, professional development is often neglected or is simply too big of an investment of precious resources. OKCNP exists to be a trusted resource for all nonprofit organizations in the state of Oklahoma. We know that thriving communities includes thriving nonprofit organizations operating at the peak of productivity. We offer state-of-the-art trainings, custom-tailored consultations, strategic discussions, membership, resources, sector recognition, and a concentrated advocacy platform to advance the collective impact of Oklahoma’s charitable sector. We do this through close collaboration with community, nonprofit, and philanthropic leaders from across the state that share our belief that nonprofit professionals should have access to top tier resources.

OKCNP develops and offers programs and resources tailored to the needs of Oklahoma nonprofits. Nonprofit organizations are at the forefront of Oklahoma’s largest challenges and the Center offers its services with the intent to foster a unified and professional nonprofit sector operating according to leading practices, and achieving maximum impact in hundreds of Oklahoma communities.

We know that offering state-of-the-art programs is simply the beginning. In order to truly achieve a statewide presence, it is essential to create opportunities for all nonprofit organizations across the state to have access to our resources, trainings, and consultation services. This is precisely why enhancing the availability of our trainings and services for organizations outside major metro areas has become a crucial part of our strategy. While establishing a physical presence within communities is essential to create lasting relationships with nonprofits across the state, we know that technology is a pivotal tool for increasing our presence and offering resources that can be accessed from anywhere. Because of this, the Center continues to invest in increasing its technological capacity.

In addition to our workshops and trainings, the Center offers organization specific consulting, a free nonprofit helpline, and Shared Financial Services to nonprofits regardless of mission, size, location, or maturity.

OKCNP staff are experts in all facets of nonprofit management and boast a combined expertise of 220 years of nonprofit experience and 230 years of for-profit experience. Whether it is board governance, resource development, human resources, financial management, or advocacy and public policy, OKCNP has the expertise needed for nonprofits of all shapes and sizes.

The Center's leadership team has the experience, knowledge, and expertise to be able to meet the needs of the nonprofit sector. Having served on more than 30 boards, Marnie Taylor, President and CEO is a trusted expert in leadership and board governance and a BoardSource-certified consultant. Janetta Cravens, Vice President of Programs, has nearly 20 years of experience as a fundraiser, social justice expert, leader, and former pastor of several large congregations, giving her particular insight into complex governance and management systems for nonprofit organizations, churches, and associations. Daniel Billingsley, Vice President of External Affairs, brings nearly 20 years of experience in marketing, fundraising and strategic planning to the Center, helping organizations create visionary goals with plans to reach those goals through comprehensive objectives.

OKCNP is the state’s preeminent provider of nonprofit training, consultation, and resources that promote best practices in management and governance and bolster the collective impact of the charitable sector through effective nonprofits. In the last five fiscal years alone, OKCNP has informed over 13,000 attendees in over 1,100 training sessions on best practices of nonprofit management and governance. This translates in thousands of nonprofit professionals and board members that are better equipped to further the mission of their organizations and affect positive change in communities statewide through varied services and touchpoints.

Because of OKCNP's unique position within the Oklahoma nonprofit sector, we are able to say with confidence that our programs enable nonprofit leaders, staff, and volunteers of all sub-sectors to better serve their communities by operating according to best practices. Our membership base has increased by 37% since 2014 and includes over 900 of the state’s leading nonprofit organizations in all sub-sectors.

Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
