Odds are often stacked against nonprofits and small businesses, but we firmly believe that all organizations are capable of getting the resources they need to survive and thrive.

Susan has spent most of her career in acquiring and managing grants from a wide variety of sources (government, large national foundations, local and family foundations). Recently, she has begun to work with other types of fundraising: events, memberships, individual giving and corporate sponsors. Perhaps the most exciting category of fundraising is crowdfunding, which is relevant in both the nonprofit and start-up for-profit worlds.

Working with Us

If you are interested in engaging Yuen Designs in fundraising consulting, we will arrange for a 1-hour consultation, free of charge. If our skills match your organization’s needs, we will arrange for a time-limited contract, with specific deliverables.

Our consulting rates are based on a sliding scale, based on organization size. We will explain these rates on our first visit. At this time, Yuen Designs does not engage in pro bono consulting.
