Leslie Salvail

Fundraising Program Manager

Leslie brings extensive knowledge and experience to Avalon, having worked across the entire nonprofit fundraising spectrum. Prior to joining Avalon, Leslie worked in the development offices at the National Breast Cancer Coalition and Anne Arundel Community College in Annapolis, where she honed her skills in online fundraising and social media development, donor recognition and stewardship program design, and direct mail program management and production.

As a fundraising program manager, Leslie works closely with Avalon’s senior account managers to guarantee seamless campaign execution and ensure that her clients’ schedules and projects run smoothly and efficiently. She leads the production and data management of her clients’ campaigns, and is a key player in client messaging, program and campaign strategy, creative development, and budgeting and forecasting. Leslie’s hands-on approach and attention to detail make her an invaluable member of the Avalon team.

Outside of work, Leslie runs a small floral business and enjoys traveling the world with her husband and three children. When she’s not planning her next big adventure, you can find her reading, hiking, or biking.
