Guest post by Joe Baker, Vice President, Editorial and Advocacy for Care2.

The “butterfly effect”—the idea that a butterfly flapping its wings can set in motion a series of events that result in massive change halfway around the world—is an apt way to describe our increasingly global and connected world.

We could also call this the rhino effect. In the United States or China, the imminent disappearance of the African black rhino may not appear to have much impact, but like the wind generated from a butterfly’s wings, losing the black rhino can have an effect on everything from local ecosystems and economies to global politics and markets....

Meet The CSC!

Meet the Campaign Support Center

Cscpicture2

 

An operational component of the Finance Department, the Columbus Ohio based Charity Support Center (CSC) provides cost-billed fiscal management services to 21 customers (4 EarthShare affiliated federations, the 7 ES Chapters federations, 5 customer-managed local campaigns, and 5 EarthShare managed regional campaigns). Last fiscal year, the CSC issued 121 payouts of $7.9M to 5,500+ payees.  To manage the customers, the CSC employs the Helix Andar software for its 5 databases - a donor relationship centric product that is utilized by more than 300 United Ways. 

Paul Bingle is Director of Fiscal Services and is supported fulltime by Donor Choice Analysts Kari Bradley and part-time by Brooke Roman-Hidas – who is also ES Ohio’s (ESOH) Managing Director. 

Paul shared that “Our goal is to quietly, professionally, and quickly process the pledges, receipts, payouts, and periodic accounting reporting for our customers.  We utilize the best industry-specific tool available and empower our customers with information while allowing them to focus on revenue production rather than revenue management.”

The CSC started with the 2006 campaign year when ESOH originated the former Affiliate Service Center as both an ESOH revenue enhancement project and to advance several goals of the ES Affiliation Agreement (AA) negotiations.  In 2011, EarthShare took on the project with its 9 customers when ESOH converted to being a Chapters federation....

“Don’t worry,” my friend proactively reassured me as he handed me a glass of water. “Our filter gets everything.”

I was visiting with friends over the holidays in Flint, Michigan where the new mayor had just declared a state of emergency due to high levels of lead in the city’s water supply. The announcement thrust the struggling Rust Belt city, into the international spotlight.

While the rest of the world was just learning about the city’s water crisis, the people of Flint had been living with the problem for well over a year....
