Arlen Sue Fox (Sue) is a volunteer with ReServe, an organization that places retired professionals with nonprofit organizations. Because Sue worked for many years with settlement houses and values them so highly, she asked to be placed at UNH, and now works with Angela Perry-Spruill, Director of Member Services, on a variety of projects.
Sue retired from Sunnyside Community Services, where, as Associate Executive Director for Development, she created, expanded, and ran the development department and helped plan and obtain capital funding for SCS’s Center for Active Older Adults.
Before her work at SCS, Sue worked in publishing, was Director of Research, Planning, and Evaluation for the New York City Commission on Human Rights, and spent many years as a consultant to nonprofit organizations—including many settlement houses. As the Coordinator of the City Connect Federal Grantsmanship Network, a foundation-initiated project designed to help nonprofit organizations improve their ability to obtain federal funding, she provided technical assistance and training on the federal grant process to nonprofit organizations. She’s co-author of The Only Grant-Writing Book You’ll Ever Need and author of Preparing Federal Proposals: An Introduction.
