"Nonprofits by Numbers" by Mark Holloway, CEO and Carri Munn Interim VP Finance & Operations, Social Venture Partners

There are more than 21,000 nonprofit organizations in Oregon, employing 10% of the state’s workforce and holding assets of $114.8 billion. They provide a lifeline to families in need, protect vulnerable people and environments, provide vibrant networks for personal and professional development (hint hint!) and more. Their success, efficiency and sustainability are important to us all. In this session, presenters from Social Venture Partners will share what makes nonprofit finances unique, growth more treacherous than most businesses, and the accounting even more “artistic” than usual.


As CEO of Portland’s only venture philanthropy foundation, Mark Holloway leads more than 400 philanthropists to channel the community’s underutilized resources to the social solutions that need a thrust to achieve broader success. He joined SVP in 2007 and remains determined to make Portland the best place in the world to be a kid—no matter their color, class, or ability.

Prior to assuming this position in 2007, Mark was Manager of Corporate Outreach for the Global Business Coalition on HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GBC). While at the GBC, Mark was responsible for recruiting more than 60 international corporations to join the fight against HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria.

Mark also provided management consulting to leaders of New York City’s grassroots nonprofit community. He has a professional background in public relations but has also served as a hospital and prison chaplain, taught primary and secondary school in the US and Chile, and managed political campaigns in Louisiana, his state of origin. Mark has a degree in communications from Loyola University New Orleans as well as master's degree in business administration and theology from the University of Notre Dame.

He currently serves on the Board of Directors for Period. – The Menstrual Movement, Oregon Community Foundation Latino Partnership Advisory Board, and a mentor with the Willamette Valley Development Officers (WVDO) Executive Leadership Academy.

"Fraud - A Risky Business" by Pete Miller, CPA, CFE, Clark Nuber

In the business of fraud everything comes down to risk. Pete will provide an overview of what a risk assessment process looks like and how that can guide an organization in building an effective fraud prevention and risk management program. As a fraud expert, Pete will begin with an overview of the latest trends in occupational fraud behavior, how successful organizations assess fraud risks, and how you can prevent or stop fraud from happening at your organization. Pete will provide a summary of these trends intermingled with some contextual cases of his own and then launch into the risk assessment overview.
