LO Schools Foundation seeks feedback
The Foundation is focusing on building its endowment fund to help ensure a lasting legacy of educational excellence for the students and community of Lake Oswego. It is seeking the advice and input of parents and community residents to help hone the direction of the endowment before launching the endowment campaign.
The Lake Oswego Schools Foundation invites you to a participative focus group session regarding the Foundation's endowment. They ask you to relax, listen and provide honest feedback to our presentation. They do not want your money at these meetings — the "no ask" rule will be in effect at the focus group meeting. The sole objective is to listen to your feedback about elements of the endowment plan.
Meetings will be tightly organized to begin and end on time. Consultant Tom Wilson of Major Gift Fundraising, a North American nonprofit consulting firm, will facilitate the sessions.
