Will Jones III

Relationship Manager, NEW

As Relationship Manager, Will serves as a liaison between NEW’s key stakeholders and partners, like our peer clients, fellow capacity-building organizations, and generous contributors.  In support of NEW’s vision of “vibrant communities”, he strives to build multi-faceted relationships with the other people and organizations that make up the social sector ecosystem, believing that the complex challenges facing today’s nonprofits require collaborators in capacity-building to create bonds that transcend the transactional. Having joined NEW as Program Coordinator in February of 2018, Will gained first-hand insight into the needs of other nonprofits and the ways in which our organization is positioned to help address them. This experience has been vital in helping him foster connection and bring the people of the sector closer together in ways that help improve the impact of our work in the communities we serve. Believing that relationships in today’s world often are built before people meet face-to-face, Will also manages the bulk of NEW’s marketing and social media communications, including our regularly distributed newsletter.  Will is a proud graduate of both Eastern Michigan and Michigan State Universities, having received his Master’s of Business Administration with a concentration in Entrepreneurship from EMU in 2019, and Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from MSU in 2011. He currently resides in Ypsilanti with his wife and their two dogs.
