OMRF has chosen 41 students from around the state for its inaugural Teen Leaders in Philanthropy class.
Those selected will visit OMRF monthly during the 2013-2014 school year to meet philanthropic leaders and learn more about nonprofit organizations and how giving impacts their communities. The teens will work together on special team-building and fundraising projects and learn about basic philanthropy, development, board structure, networking, fundraising and social media. They also will take part in a mock board meeting and learn how to use social media as branding and fundraising tools.
