Avon MacFarlane

Consulting Partner

Avon is a distinguished fundraising professional with more than 25 years of experience in the field.

Avon came to Marts&Lundy from the University of Toronto, where she spent 12 years as a pivotal strategist behind the $1 billion Great Minds campaign — at the time, the largest campaign in Canadian history. Avon offers vast expertise in prospect management, major giving, international philanthropy and annual and planned giving. She can also navigate the complexities of large institutions, having helped steer more than 25 faculties and divisions of the University of Toronto towards a common fundraising goal.

Prior to joining the University of Toronto, Avon spent several years coordinating fundraising and sponsorship at Harbourfront Centre, seeking private and public funds for theatre festivals, children’s programming, dance series, films and music festivals. Avon has been involved as a volunteer in the arts and nonprofit sectors and currently serves on the investment committee for LEAP.
