Tesoro has launched a charitable foundation and new community investment program around STEM education, public safety, and environmental conservation and sustainability. Please join us for an exclusive opportunity as Jared Skok, executive director of the Tesoro Foundation, discusses the Company’s new strategy, funding priorities and application process—and then facilitates a conversation around the following questions to help organizations learn strategies for more effectively fundraising with your board… Is your Board comfortable in their fundraising role? Do they know the steps to successful fundraising? Do Board members know that fundraising is really not about asking for money? Do you know how to engage your Board in meaningful fundraising?
This highly informative workshop will help you in recruiting and sustaining an effective fundraising Board of Directors.
