Jon Kozesky joined the Institute in 2021 as our Grants and Foundation Relations Manager. With over 15 years of experience in development and fundraising in both the public and private sector, Jon is responsible for building the Institute’s profile with institutional funders and global opportunities for development.
Prior to joining the Institute, Jon started his career in politics working in the office of U.S. Congressman Steven LaTourette, as well as then-United States Senator and former Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton. After leaving Capitol Hill, Jon pursued his passion of helping environmental nonprofits secure the resources they needed to best serve their constituents. This effort led to his founding of Jon Thomas Consulting, a global nonprofit management and development firm focused in streamlining organizational processes, identifying new funding opportunities, and maximizing revenue growth.
