Tim Plant

Leslie Greene Bowman announced the appointment of a new Director of Development, Tim Plant, as of June 17.  Plant brings more than 20 years of experience in the profession. Throughout his career, he has enjoyed engaging with donors to realize their philanthropic goals and strengthen their connections to a non-profit’s mission. Most recently, Tim served as Vice President of Advancement for Communities In Schools, a national organization empowering students to stay in school and achieve in life. Before joining Communities In Schools nearly a decade ago, Plant worked for other non-profits in Washington, DC, including Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, People For the American Way, and the Victory Fund. “We are delighted to find in Tim a passionate advocate for Monticello’s vision to bring history forward into national and global conversations,” Bowman remarked. “We are sure to benefit from his deep and successful experience with fundraising on a national level.”

Outside of work, Plant’s interests range from fiction writing and baking, to long-distance biking. He earned a BA in English from Trinity College in Hartford, CT, and an MBA from Western Governors University. Plant is married to a former Monticello guide, and has been a fan of Jefferson’s plantation since his first visit 10 years ago. He and his husband have a residence in Charlottesville, and Plant is excited to fulfill a dream of combining his personal appreciation of Jefferson’s legacy with his professional experience. He looks forward to officially joining the Foundation’s team and working with its renowned staff, board and family of supporters.
