About Us

Suzanne R. Gonzalez
Director of Development

Suzanne is a native of East Los Angeles and is devoted to the transformational impact local organizations have in this area and the surrounding communities.   Plaza Community Services naturally captured Suzanne’s interest and propelled an aspiration to be a part of its growth and innovation.

As the Development Director for Plaza Community Services, Suzanne manages mission-driven fundraising activities that support its visionary programs and operations.  She identifies markets aligned with the organization’s cause, communicates the value and impact of its services to the corporate and philanthropic communities, and shores up meaningful relationships in order to build sustainable revenue streams.  Suzanne mobilizes Plaza’s resources and increases its individual donor base, corporate partnerships, foundation supports, and government agency contracts toward positive outcomes for children and families. 

Suzanne has more than 18 years of progressive experience with various nonprofit organizations in the Greater Los Angeles area. Some of these organizations include New Economics for Women, MAOF, PADRES Contra El Cancer, Pasadena Heritage, and the California Community Foundation.  She has successfully executed all aspects of fundraising, including the procurement of substantial revenue from an array of events.  Her collaborative leadership style enables her to successfully nurture key relationships with people across a wide network of constituencies and diverse cultures and develop innovative solutions that facilitate constructive change. 

She is a member of the State Bar of California, the Mexican American Bar Association, and Latina Golfers Association. She is a graduate of Ramona Convent Secondary School in Alhambra and holds a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of California, Berkeley.  She also has a Juris Doctor from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles.

Suzanne currently resides in Rosemead with her son. When she isn't raising money for Plaza Community Services, she enjoys caring for rescued dogs, visiting local cultural centers, singing karaoke, and exploring neighborhood parks.
