ABOUT AVALON CONSULTING

Bringing Your Mission to Life

Avalon Consulting uses systems, strategy, and savvy to drive results for nonprofits so they can inspire people to help change the world.

Since 1997, Avalon has partnered with progressive nonprofits and campaigns to raise millions of dollars to achieve their visions. We have helped small organizations grow and leading organizations reach new heights, and we’ve won awards for our groundbreaking work along the way.

From the beginning, we’ve been a unique agency: Women-owned, unabashedly progressive, and singularly focused on fundraising. Together, these qualities drive our special approach to relationship-based nonprofit marketing, an approach that has led to exceptional results for over 20 years and counting.

 

The success of our work is not incremental. We empower our clients to make a big, substantial impact because they deserve it, their mission deserves it, their supporters deserve it, and those impacted by their work deserve it, too.

As an Avalon client, you’ll benefit from a powerful, time-tested balance of passion, process, savvy, and practicality. We offer strategies that resonate with internal stakeholders and external supporters alike. We make decisions based on reasonable, actionable timelines and budgets. We aren’t afraid to speak truth to power for the good of the mission, the campaign, and the bottom line.

We’d love to share more about what we have to offer, and how we can work together to support your organization.

Avalon’s Culture

Thriving team, thriving clients

What’s it like to work at Avalon? Here’s what some of our team members have to say:

“Compared to the other places I have worked, Avalon is so much better. They have created an environment that encourages creativity, challenges you to always strive for more, and encourages a work life balance.”

 

“Avalon really is a great place to work. I’m passionate about its mission and the good work we provide to our clients, which enable them to fulfill their goals and grow. Benefits are excellent, and “work-life balance” isn’t just a buzzword. Everyone cares about one another and the work that we all do. Opinions from all staff members are respected and heard. I am motivated to come to work every day and to produce the best work that I can. Management is excellent, with clear goals for short-and long-term growth.”

 

“I think Avalon Consulting Group is a great place to work, where I can contribute to organizations making a difference in our world while growing as a direct marketing professional.”

What’s the secret to our success? It’s no secret at all. Our leadership believes that Avalon clients thrive because our team thrives personally and professionally. Here’s what we think that means:

  • There is a path to success for every employee and we’re willing to invest in it
  • We hire the best and we do everything we can to keep them
  • Superstar staff members are elevated as leaders on the industry stage
  • Doing good work can (and should!) be fun AND rewarding
  • We celebrate company “wins” as well as personal milestones. From birthdays, to weddings, to new clients, to promotions, there’s always a reason to break out the wine and cheese!
  • We are committed to our clients’ missions and our own industry, giving back through volunteerism, financial contributions, and involvement in industry leadership
