Introduc7on
Nonprofit	ExecuCve	Directors	wear	many	hats	and	have	lots	of	responsibiliCes.		Between	the	
work	of	the	mission,	balancing	mulCple	budgets,	running	a	staff,	working	with	a	board	and	
volunteers,	raising	money	and	so	much	more	it	can	be	a	thankless	and	exhausCng	job.		It	can	
also	be	just	as	rewarding	when	you	can	be	a	part	of	a	well	run	organizaCon	that	makes	a	
difference	in	a	community	or	region.	
Today	we	are	going	to	have	a	conversaCon	with	a	nonprofit	execuCve	director	and	discuss	the	
roles,	responsibiliCes	and	the	challenges	of	leading	an	organizaCon.

Michael	Firpo-	Execu7ve	Director	
Mike	is	a	Fresno	County	naCve	and	has	been	a	Golf	Professional	since	1993.	
Mike	was	a	member	of	the	Golden	State	and	Texas	Mini-Tours	from	1993	through	
1995.	He	was	named	Ping	Club-FiJer	of	the	Year	in	1997,	and	in	2003	our	local	
PGA	chapter	honored	him	for	his	work	with	junior	golf.	Since	2000,	Mike	has	
been	involved	with	teaching	the	game	of	golf	on	a	full-Cme	basis	to	people	of	all		
ages,	but	with	a	specialty	in	developing	junior	programs	and	curriculum	suited	for		
the	youth	of	Central	California.	As	head	coach	of	the	Bullard	High	School	
Boys’	Golf	Team	from	2003	-	2008,	Mike	worked	hard	to	return	integrity	to	his	
alma	mater	and	in	the	process	his	teams	won	several	Area	Championships.	
Mike	was	instrumental	in	bringing	The	First	Tee	to	Fresno	because	of	his	belief	
that	junior	golf,	and	its	inherent	values,	was	not	being	offered	to	all	children.	Mike	
has	been	involved	with	every	facet	of	The	First	Tee	and	its	creaCon	here	in		
Fresno.
Michael	Firpo
Mike	believes	golf	presents	the	perfect	vehicle	to	teach	character-development	and	
life-enhancing	values	to	children,	because	each	child	is	entrusted	with	monitoring	
his	or	her	own	score.	Honesty	is	an	integral	part	of	the	game	and	Mike	believes	this	
presents	an	excepConal	opportunity	to	teach	the	Nine	Core	Values	of	The	First	Tee	
program:	Honesty,	Integrity,	Sportsmanship,	Respect,	Confidence,	Responsibility,	
Perseverance,	Courtesy,	&	Judgment.	
Mike	is	commiJed	to	the	success	of	The	First	Tee	of	Fresno,	and	introducing	the	
wonderful	
game	of	golf	to	the	children	of	the	greater	Fresno	area.	
Since	May	31,	2008	when	The	First	Tee	of	Fresno	held	its	very	first	class,	the	program	
has	grown	from	impacCng	150	kids	that	first	year	to	over	25,000	kids	impacted	
annually	as	of	2015.
