Nicole Brose

Creator of Opportunities

Nicole Brose’s passion for “people who give” has inspired philanthropists across the globe to invest in causes they feel better connected to.  Donors are uniquely positioned to give to charities they feel inspired by, and they understand how people in today’s busy and distracting world need simplistic and personalized messaging.  She believes philanthropy is a two-way street: charities are looking for donors as much as donors are looking for charities that meet their personal giving goals. Her most rewarding moments are when donors thank her for giving them the opportunity to participate in a cause.

Nicole is a graduate of Purdue University with advanced studies from the University of Massachusetts and University of Auckland, New Zealand. She is the founder of Creating Caring Communities, which has now merged with Nonprofix. Nicole is the Creator of Opportunities for Nonprofix, and feels passionate about assisting nonprofits with strategic development planning, including digital asset creation and marketing, among other similar areas of expertise. She has helped raise millions of dollars for nonprofits, with a particular interest in those fighting for causes she is passionate about, especially children and animals.

Nicole has served in nearly every nonprofit role from volunteer, development director, and executive director, to CEO of a national nonprofit. She has worked in Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, and the United Kingdom. Past board roles include, the Jacksonville Mayor’s Animal Task Force, Second Chance Rescue, Big Brothers Big Sisters of NE Florida, Hope To Help Foundation, Flagler Humane Society, Mayor’s Task Force on Health and Wellness for NE Florida, George Washington Carver Foundation, and the Florida Women’s Health Council. She is a current member of the Board of Directors for K9s United and an advisor to Boys and Girls Club.

Nicholas Louckes

Chief Technology Officer

In college Nick excelled at computer programing and he was retained as a teaching assistant, helping other students complete their assignments in the computer lab. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering and began his career as an engineer with the Chrysler Corporation. While at Chrysler he worked in their safety lab, developing safety features for side impact to ensure that vehicles exceeded safety requirements. Never limiting himself to safety testing, he also wrote his first web application, while still at Chrysler. This early application, to take laboratory requests online and streamline the way engineers requested tests, renewed his interest in writing software. For the next few years, developing web applications was an enjoyable hobby, but it was relegated to his spare time. In 2008, when the economy slumped, he took a buy-out from Chrysler and began creating software full time. He is glad that he did!
Since then, Nick has created websites and web applications for organizations of different sizes nationally. To excel in his field, Nick has become an avid student of marketing, SEO, and UI/UX techniques. From Department of Defense applications to sales-driven landing pages, he always strives to produce a product that is well above the client’s expectations.  Most of the websites he has created have been for nonprofit organizations; like the rest of his team, he is passionate about helping those who work hard to make a difference. Working with so many nonprofits has given Nick the experience needed to help nonprofits create an online brand. Greater than the satisfaction of excelling in this web-developing niche, working with nonprofits has given him a life mission. Nonprofix is the embodiment of this mission.
