Spokes Accepts $1,500 Donation from Rabobank

Spokes, the nonprofit resource center for the Central Coast, is excited to announce that Rabobank has become a donor/partner with a gift of $1,500.

“We are grateful to have Rabobank as a first-time donor to Spokes,” said Lesley Santos Dierks, CEO of Spokes. “With Rabobank’s support it continues to add to the momentum of the Spokes' mission 'to empower nonprofits to reach their missions.' Rabobank is a strong community supporter for so many wonderful causes, and we are excited to have them on our team so we can continue to empower all the non profits we serve.”

Rabobank wanted to support Spokes in the San Luis Obispo community to help support nonprofit leaders by providing resources for the local nonprofit sector.

"With these resources, this will benefit the entire SLO community,” said Lisa Adams, vice president and retail marketing manager for Rabobank.

Spokes is a nonprofit management support organization with over 100 members, providing training, consulting and resources to empower nonprofits to fulfill their missions. Spokes was founded as the Nonprofit Support Center in 1996 and, in 2011, relocated to San Luis Obispo and rebranded to become Spokes.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
