Robert Thomas Jones

Director of Analytics and Business Intelligence
The University of Chicago

My experience in nonprofits is both broad and deep. I have worked as a frontline case manager working with the chronically homeless, have managed grants and contracts from both public and private funders, and currently lead a team of analysts using data and technology to provide insights that drive strategy for the University of Chicago’s $5B capital campaign.

This experience and my Chicago Booth MBA give me the perspective and skills to understand the problems and to work collaboratively to find solutions.

I’m curious, open minded, and effective. I look forward to making real contributions towards the growth an organization that improves lives.

What I can bring to a board

In-depth knowledge of modern philanthropy and fundraising. Direction for technology strategy, and how to make the most data. Advice on budgeting, financial planning, and corporate governance.

What can I get from a board?

The opportunity to help maximize the impact of a growing nonprofit, expand my professional network, and gain more experience in the financial management of an organization.
