Ashley Leasure

Co-founder, Principal

I have been a fundraising professional my entire career. I helped launch OrangeGerbera as a way to extend my expertise developed as a senior development officer and executive team leader in arts and social service organizations to a more diverse and in-need collection of organizations.

I am a consensus-building nonprofit professional with the proven ability to assemble, train and motivate cross-functional teams.

I work to forge close working alliances between all business functions and stakeholders in an effort to eliminate silos, foster communication, and achieve greater results for my clients.

As a senior-level development officer, I have surpassed expectations in all types of fundraising campaigns and have established a reputation as a well-rounded fundraising generalist capable of successfully leading staff and leadership through complex transitions.
