Margaret Salamon

Development Officer
  • Development

Margaret is part of the Individual Giving Team and works to ensure RMI’s individual donors, especially donors who are a part of the Solutions Council and Legacy Society, are engaged and excited by the impact of their philanthropy and investment in RMI.


Prior to RMI, Margaret was the first development director with Green Building United, a nonprofit organization focused on advancing a sustainable, resilient, and healthy built environment for all in the greater Philadelphia region. Margaret was responsible for all facets of development including the coordination of an annual Sustainability Symposium for 600-plus green building practitioners. Additionally, Margaret has worked on the development team at the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, and with the Center for Nonprofit Excellence at the United Way of Central New Mexico.

In her 20s, she and her partner hand built a house in New Mexico from recycled and natural materials that included passive and active solar, rainwater catchment, and gray and black water wetland systems. She is now working toward electrifying her post-WWII fourplex home in Philadelphia.

Margaret is enthusiastic about solution-based work that addresses climate change, builds community, and increases social equity.
