Our People

Kate Schifferli

Senior Fundraising Program Manager

Kate joined Avalon in summer 2016 after graduating from the University of Hartford with a double major in Music Management and Viola Performance. While in college, Kate worked as a grant writer for the Fairfax Symphony Orchestra and also interned in fundraising at arts organizations around the DC area, including Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. This nonprofit experience helped her jump right in at Avalon, where she brought her expertise and attention to detail as first a program manager and now a senior program manager.

When not in the office, Kate enjoys playing viola, baking, going to concerts, and exploring Washington, DC.
