    99: Jason Patenaude, Schuler Scholar Project

    99: Jason Patenaude, Schuler Scholar Project

    On this episode of the RAISE podcast Brent sits down with Jason Patenaude. Jason is the Executive Director and COO of the Schuler Education Foundation and the Schuler Scholar Program. Prior to joining Schuler, Jason served as the Chief Operating Officer of the award-winning education company Cricket Media, and as the Chief Operating Officer of Reading In Motion, a non-profit focused on early childhood literacy.

    Jason had an experience in high school very like that of a Schuler Scholar, and it made a profound difference in his life. Having grown up in a low-income household where college was not considered as a realistic option, Jason was fortunate enough in high school to be mentored by two of his teachers who introduced him to new cultural experiences, pushed him academically, and visited liberal arts colleges with him to ensure he would continue his education. With their support, he became the first person in his family to graduate from college. That education changed the trajectory of Jason's life, and he has tried to honor his teachers’ belief in him by dedicating his career to furthering education.

    As an executive, Jason has focused on scaling small, family-run organizations through an approach that balances intelligent growth with operational efficiency and technological innovation. Jason has an MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth and a BA in English from Bates College.

Great conversations for advancement and fundraising

I love it anytime forward-thinking fundraisers share what’s working and where they want to go. Even though this just launched, I know it’ll take its place in my weekly must-listen rotation!
