DEI-Informed Fundraising: A Five-Part Series

An internal task force leads the Avalon process for continuous improvement in DEI. The group is staff-led, receiving guidance from DEI consultants. You can read about Avalon’s commitment to DEI here.

We assert that a substantive DEI commitment is not static, and we are committed to taking a harder look at how we do business, how we advise our clients, and how we take care of our staff, to ensure we are walking the walk.

This series will explore findings in five critical areas: list selection, messaging, data & analytics, digital fundraising, and hiring. We look forward to being in conversation with you about this important work.

Part One: List Selection and Diversity

Part Two: 6 Principles for Messaging

Part Three: Data Processes Should Support Your DEI Goals

Part Four: How Digital Marketing Can Further Your DEI Goals

Part Five: Hiring and Change
