Leslie Hoy

Director of Development

Leslie Hoy joined the Arise team in May 2024 as the Director of Development. Growing up in Dallas, Leslie was part of a family and community that placed a priority on serving and philanthropy. Her interest in public affairs led to a degree in communications from The University of Texas at Austin and an early career in Washington, DC.

Leslie worked in donor relations, fundraising, and event management for nonprofits in Miami.  After moving back to Dallas in 2010, she managed and executed signature fundraising events for Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, working with community boards across Texas and engaging a wide spectrum of stakeholders and donors. Leslie is passionate about the mission of Arise Africa and is looking forward to expanding awareness and growing support for meeting the economic, physical and spiritual needs of children in Zambia.

Leslie and her husband, Douglas, are members of All Saints Dallas and they have three adult children, Harrison, Ginny and Henry. She is always up for a pickle ball game, finding the perfect gift, or engaging in a spontaneous adventure.
