Nonprofit Survival Series: Foundations and Fundraising 

11:45 a.m. - Networking           12:00 p.m. - Presentation

Nonprofit organizations are systems within larger community systems. Your clients or constituents are parts of multiple systems, including your organization, that impact their daily lives. Tom Borrego will share a model based on family and community systems and help you learn how you can use this model to understand your organization and clients better. We will discuss how identifying and analyzing systems and contexts with this model can help improve programs and enhance strategic planning for your organization.


Presented by Thomas E. Borrego, J.D., Vice President of Advancement

After serving at Newman University, Tom joined Sterling College’s Advancement staff but was quickly recruited to the Hutchinson Regional Health System as their Vice President for the Foundation and Health System.  While at HRHS, Tom directed the $32 million Foundation to expand their donor database and identify funding opportunities for the health system.  In addition to his duties with the Foundation, Tom served as the interim compliance officer to oversee an Office of Inspector General’s Corporate Integrity Agreement, as well as overseeing the dietary and facilities department.  Tom led a change in the delivery of food service to staff by moving to a healthier menu and selections which received recognition from the Kansas Hospital Association (2015).

 Tom was recruited back to Wichita, KS to lead the fundraising efforts for the Advanced Learning Library, a $32 million project that partnered public and private funding to create a new downtown library.  The fundraising activity provided nearly $9 million to the project.

After the completion of the library project, Tom was recruited to serve as the Vice President of the Butler Community College Foundation and Special Assistant to the President at Butler Community College.  Tom oversees a $15 million Foundation and serves on the President’s leadership staff.
