 TEF is participating in the Tulsa Community Foundation’s “Planned Giving Partnership Program”.  As a partner, all member society members are invited to attend educational workshops on planned giving. Educational workshops are Thursday, May 11 at 5:30 pm and Tuesday May 16 at 8:30 am at OU-Tulsa Learning Center, Room 145.  Both are the same content

Workshop topic: Trends & Concerns Affecting Your Bank Account.  Most of us do not have our financial house in order. If we once did, do we still today?  Join us as we discuss major trends affecting your finances and learn valuable solutions to avoid mistakes that lead to financial consequences. For more information, or to register for this free workshop, contact TEF’s Planned Giving office at 918-491-0079 and ask for Chris or Mark.
