Tim Plant

“Tim brings a spirit of engagement and collaboration to the art of fund development that isn't always present in other leaders. He wants all stakeholders to share in both mission and sustainability. You can see this in the way he devises strategy, leads a team, stewards a donor, advises other leaders, and leads his daily life.”
