Christina Yoon, PhD
Vice President and Director, East Region
Lots of consultants understand the mechanics of fundraising, but my interpersonal skills and broad range of experience sets me apart. Through working with world-class academic institutions, membership-based organizations, and community-based nonprofits over the past 16 years, I have learned that a strong consultant-client partnership and clarity of expectations are the make-or-break factors to a successful engagement. I help organizations embrace and nurture a culture of philanthropy and raise the necessary resources to fulfill their mission.
