Gov. Jay Inslee has appointed Jasmine Minato as the Washington Higher Education Facilities Authority (WHEFA)’s newest board member, effective Nov. 9.
Minato has an extensive background in fundraising, higher-education development, and community philanthropy.
“At the heart of inclusive education infrastructure, I am eager to support regional campuses overcoming financial hardships patterned out by the COVID-19 pandemic,” Minato said.
Most recently, as the scholarship associate advisor for the Seattle Foundation, Minato worked on a team of philanthropic advisors with a mission to empower high-impact investments led by BIPOC community leaders and stewarded resources for underrepresented college students in Washington.
