Christina Yoon, PhD
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 twelve 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.
