“The Landscape Is Changing” – An Opportunity To Fix Everything

Published

on

As we are still awaiting a formal announcement from “Exceptional SC” as to Chad Connelly & Tom Persons’ separating from Exceptional SC we need you to realize … this is not a VICTORY … it is an OPPORTUNITY!!! 

We are all relieved to have the two biggest opponents to fixing this program in Chad Connelly & Tom Persons OUTGONE … from Exceptional SC … but there is work to be done.

This is the biggest opportunity to fix everything … correct all the problems of the past … but as encouraging as these words might be from the Exceptional SC attorney Friday a week ago … “The landscape is changing” … those are just words from their attorney.  We need ACTION!!!

We have a HUGE PROBLEM … yes!!!  We have all felt that very personally and our children have suffered because of it.  Well now we have an OPPORTUNITY.  Will we have VICTORY?  The next week or so will tell us which direction we are heading.

We really hope we never have to use the name (not so) Exceptional SC ever again!!!  Will it be the last time? It all depends on what happens next … in the next week or so with the remaining FOUR Exceptional SC Board Members.  Will they take advantage of the OPPORTUNITY???

YES … believe it or not … this big mess can ALL be fixed, and fixed soon. There is no reason all $12 MILLION can not be raised before 12/31/2020 if we have independent non-profits involved. We have no doubt we can do it … and fund the scholarships quickly!!!

And NO … outsourcing it to “professional fundraisers” that don’t know how these programs work … will not work …

More on that soon – STAY TUNED…

Exceptional SC Legal Status EXPIRED … AGAIN!!!

Published

on

Seriously … can this be happening again??? 

Granted, I am a tax attorney / CPA … so I think about these things all the time … and one of the VERY FIRST THINGS they teach us “tax people” is BEFORE YOUR CLIENT DONATES TO A NON-PROFIT … check their legal status.  If not all in order, and you let your client donate … it could be LEGAL MALPRACTICE!!!

First you check that the non-profit is actually an IRS approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit … and then you check the Secretary of State’s Office to verify the organization’s legal status is current.

(not so) Exceptional SCs Status?  EXPIRED … AGAIN!!!

Why, Why, Why???  Remember this from JANUARY 2020 … we mocked the incompetency back then … but no, the #FireTheBoard!!! at (not so) Exceptional SC let their legal status expire AGAIN!!! 

Board Malpractice!!!

Legal Status Expired in January 2020 & AGAIN in December 2020

This says it all … WE know how to FIX ALL OF THIS … but the (not so) Exceptional SC Board won’t do anything … won’t talk … won’t meet … just blame others.  STOP THE INSANITY!!!!

“Only” $63,115 Raised in November!!!

Published

on

Well, it is not getting any better.  (not so) Exceptional SC only raised $63,114.78 in November … another huge FAILURE!!!

In November 2019 … as bad as that year was … they raised $427,000. 

Donors have ZERO confidence in the Board at (not so) Exceptional SC … especially after they apparently let the now fired executive director Chad Connelly EMBEZZEL MONEY from the organization … from kids scholarships … and still trying to sweep it under the rug. 

Would you donate to these guys … or as a CPA tell your clients to donate to them?!?!?  It is NEVER going to get better with (not so) Exceptional SC!!!

It is not getting better folks … and the BOARD at (not so) Exceptional SC is still silent.
