portrait of Ron Cohen

Ron Cohen

Ron is the founding partner of 2468 Appreciate, LLC, which provides consulting services to help nonprofit organizations thrive by maximizing the contributions of their constituents. Prior to that, Ron spent 32 years working for three small universities that secured over $350 million in gift and grant revenue from donors. He served as Vice President for Advancement at Susquehanna University (PA) from 2000-2017, leading two successful campaigns and starting a third, all of which saw donors contribute more than $200 million. Ron’s research on how colleges and universities stay meaningfully connected to their graduates led Susquehanna to re-positioning alumni engagement in ways that produced greater value benefiting students, alumni, and the university.
