Who We Are

Adding value to vision

At  Lee+ Associates we believe that our work with you results in “adding value to vision” and that belief drives everything we do… from time spent listening and understanding your needs, to assembling the best team to work with you…to the services that we provide to advance your mission and find solutions to your challenges.

Our team of talented, experienced professionals offers you expert advice, and formulates thoughtful plans and strategies to help effectively address your organizational needs.  Our clients range from the one-person shop to the large nonprofit and they come to us seeking solutions.  They include hundreds of nonprofits from San Antonio, Austin, the Hill Country, and south and central Texas and beyond.   We have helped libraries, schools, universities, arts organizations, faith-based groups, character-building organizations, animal/environmental groups, and social and human service groups.


In 1999, Mike Bacon and Marion Lee founded Bacon Lee & Associates to provide solutions for nonprofit organizations, especially the one-person development shop and help them achieve success. They came together after having enjoyed careers as both fundraisers and as grantors for foundations, and built a team of creative and resourceful associates in San Antonio and Austin.

In Fall of 2015 Mike accepted a position at his alma mater, Trinity University, as Vice President for Advancement and Alumni Relations, and Marion continued to expand the firm’s reach and capacity by adding staff. A year later Alexis De Sela became COO of Lee+ Associates.

Lee+ Associates is committed to helping nonprofits build stronger boards, engage effectively with volunteers, embrace fundraising best practices, and raise more money.
