Who We Are

Founded as Smith Beers Yunker & Company in 1995 on the principle Helping Others Make a Difference®, The Yunker Group offers guidance to volunteer leaders to help them govern more passionately, choose C-level executives more strategically, and steward funds more effectively. Team members provide behind-the-scenes coaching and advice to nonprofit staff, helping them make a greater difference in their vital roles.

 

We believe remaining behind the scenes is imperative in providing nonprofit executive search and fundraising counsel. We never seek recognition or take credit for the successes of those who devote their lives to making a difference in their communities. Whether assisting seniors, educating children, caring for the poor or disabled, sustaining the arts, protecting the environment, or any other worthy endeavor, it is their work we strive to further and their reputations we seek to enhance. We are proud to be associated with and eager to be of service to all who are involved in the noble work supported by philanthropy.

Who We Serve

We take seriously our mission Helping Others Make A Difference®.  Check us out with organizations we have helped in a variety of ways and learn we’ve developed a reputation for telling leaders what they need to hear, not necessarily what they want to hear. We like Teddy Roosevelt’s admonition, “People Don’t Care What You Know Until They Know How Much You Care.”  You will learn we care!
