Sara Swisher

Fundraising Program Manager

Sara brings to her work a passion for social justice and strong commitment to public service. Prior to joining Avalon, she helped reenergize the development department at the National Organization for Women (NOW), which led to a $1 million increase in revenue in a single year.

At Avalon, Sara manages every aspect of fundraising campaigns, from concept development to creating budgets and mail plans to working with copywriters, designers, telemarketers, and vendors to ensure Avalon’s clients get the best possible results. Today, she is focusing her energies on creating successful campaigns for Bread for the City, FARE, and the Brennan Center for Justice.

Outside of work, Sara likes to relax by the water near her home in Florida, volunteer for causes she cares about, and binge her favorite TV shows and podcasts.
